Chicken in Potato Baskets Recipe

These petite pies with their hash brown crusts are so pretty that I like to serve them for special luncheons. Chock-full of meat and vegetables in a creamy sauce, they're a meal-in-one...and a great way to use up left-over chicken or turkey. —Helen Lamison Carnegie, Pennsylvania

"Family hit the second time I made these. I actually partially cook my hashbrowns in the microwave before shaping them in the ramekins. I also like to sprinkle shredded cheddar or colby cheese before baking. Just adds another depth of flavor."

"Delicious! My whole family loved it & said "it's a keeper". I didn't have custard cups so I used a 9x9 square dish & layered the hash brown mixture on bottom, then poured the filling on top. I used cubed hash browns and it worked well. Bake as per recipe. Highly recommend!"

"This recipe is great! My family really enjoyed it. Instead of using frozen hash brown potatoes use this short "recipe".

Peel several potatoes and shred with a salad shooter. Shred enough potatoes to equal 4 1/2 cups. Mix with the butter, salt and pepper. Divide among 6 10 oz. custard cups. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Then add the filling. The homemade potato shell is a lot healthier. Also, don't be tempted to add more salt, it is okay as it is. Great recipe, and really cute with the individual custard cups!"

"My sister has made this several times, including last night when we were over. She uses store-bought rotisserie chicken, which adds even more flavor, and she found a frozen peas and mini-pearl onion mix that was great in there! (She did use the sauted onion in the beginning, too.) So easy, and perfect with a simple salad and a dinner roll."
