light-chicken-pot-pie

Ingredients 

  • 1 small onion – (finely chopped)
  • 8 oz mushrooms – (chopped)
  • 2 small stalks celery – (chopped)
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
  • 8 oz skinless, boneless chicken breasts – (cooked and diced)
  • 2 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp light butter
  • 1 cup fat free chicken broth
  • ½ cup fat free evaporated milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 4 slices reduced fat crescent roll dough

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 375 and spray a 10” pie plate with cooking spray (butter flavored is best).
  • In a medium sized pot, melt butter over medium high heat. Add in onions and celery and cook until tender, about 3 minutes. Add in mushrooms and cook for another 3 minutes. Stir in broth, chicken, vegetables, paprika, thyme and salt and pepper. Cover and simmer on medium for about 12-15 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the evaporated milk and flour. Pour into chicken and vegetable mixture and continue to cook on medium heat, stirring constantly until the sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pie plate, and arrange crescent roll slices around the outside edge, leaving the pie open in the center.
  • Place into oven and bake until the crust is golden brown, and the center of the pot pie is bubbly, about 15 minutes.
  • Let cool 10 minutes before serving.
