chicken pot pie...

I know I've blogged about this before, but eatbetteramerica is such an awesome site. I made their "healthified" chicken pot pie the other night and it was delicious!  Check out their photo...(mine didn't look nearly that pretty.)

I didn't have a round casserole, so I just used a square Pyrex and it worked fine.  I also used less chicken...4 cups seemed like a lot.  I opted for 2 cans of chunk chicken from my food storage and a larger (16 oz.) bag of veggies.  It turned out great - comfort food, for sure!

“Healthified” Chicken Pot Pie
Preheat:  375°
Cook Time:  1 hour, start to finish
1 bag (12-16 oz) frozen mixed vegetables
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 ¼  cups skim milk
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked, cut into bite-size pieces (about 4 cups)
1 refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box

1.        Cook and drain vegetables as directed on bag.
2.     Heat oven to 375°F. In 2-quart saucepan, mix flour, salt, poultry seasoning, pepper and milk with wire whisk until blended. Stir in onion. Cook over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened.
3.      Stir in soup and sour cream. Add chicken and cooked vegetables; mix well. Cook, stirring frequently, until thoroughly heated. Pour into ungreased 2-quart round casserole. Unroll pie crust; place over hot filling. Seal edge and flute as desired. Cut slits in several places in crust.
4.       Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and mixture is bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Servings:  4-6
