This was easy to make and pretty good. I would recommend it, especially for dieters... I believe it's about 8 points.
If you are looking for a truly wonderful low fat pot pie then this is it! Since the "gravy" is made using nonfat milk, it isn't as creamy as the higher fat versions; however, what this recipe doesn't have in fat it makes up for in vegetables. It is packed with a wonderful combination of vegetables and seasonings. Instead of cooking the vegetables and chicken in the broth and then removing, I prepared the white sauce in my Vita-Mix and then incorporated into the chicken/vegetable mixture. The pastry edges were turned under and crimped. Definitely use a cookie sheet to cook this on as this dish is filled to the brim. A repeat for sure.
Your recipe makes for a wonderfully delicious pot pie & is certainly different from what is usually found out there! Loved the veggie combo used in this one, & will be keeping the recipe around to make again in the future! Thanks so much for sharing it!
