Thanks so much for posting this recipe! Hubby loved it! I did use Smart Balance instead of butter and used fat free chicken broth and fat free evaporated milk instead of the heavy cream. Works out to 5 points on Weight Watchers. Delish!

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Prepare pastry, cut top into lattice strips.
  3. (I use just a regular pie top with slits cut in it. It's quicker).

  5. Cook, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. Stir in chicken broth and cream.

  9. Boil and stir for one minute.
  10. Stir in chicken and vegetables.
  11. Pour into pastry lined pie pan.
  12. Cover with lattice top.
  13. Cover edge with 2-3 inch strips of foil to prevent excessive browning.
  14. Remove foil for the last 15 minutes of baking.
  15. Bake for 35 to 40 or until crust is brown.
