Let’s be honest: Pillsbury crescent rolls make any meal better. Bland scrambled eggs? Meh. Crescent rolls and scrambled eggs? YAY. Here’s a genius dinner that’s ready in minutes and everyone who isn’t annoyingly super picky will love: Crescent roll mini chicken pot pies. Aren’t they adorable?
You could use a rotisserie chicken for this.
You could also use shredded chicken in the instant pot.
Let’s suppose you have little heathens who don’t yet appreciate chicken pot pie. You can use some of the chicken for your delicious mini pot pies. The leftover shredded chicken can be transformed into bbq chicken sandwiches, a main course with a veggie, mixed with pasta, or on top of nachos. Instant pot shredded chicken offers endless dinner possibilities.
Let’s talk about wine.
Now for the fun stuff: what wine to drink with mini chicken pot pies?? Try a Sauvignon Blanc like the Napa Cellars Sauvignon Blanc, which is light and crisp, and doesn’t taste like grapefruit like most Sauvignon Blancs. Or a Fume Blanc, pronounced Foo-may Bl-ahhhh-nk. Fun side note: What is Fume Blanc? Fume Blanc is actually a Sauvignon Blanc. California Sauvignon Blanc had a bad rep in the 70s, so Robert Mondavi had the genius idea to call it Fume Blanc, and not just for his wines. Napa & Sonoma Valley branded their Sauvignon Blanc wines “Fume Blanc” and many keep the label today.
