Healthier Chicken Pot Pie

Yes, you can make a healthier version of a chicken pot pie and not waste a good 400 plus calories on a single, tiny pot pie.  Hey who knows, this could be an excellent use for your leftover turkey from Thanksgiving!  This recipe is from the first Hungry Girl book, my favorite book of all of them so far.  I've loved chicken pot pie since I was a little kid, but we all know how loaded they are with bad bad stuff.


Hungry Girl came up with a solution that is about half the calorie count using basic ingredients you can get just about anywhere!  Below is a screen shot, but you can head over to the website to get the full side by side comparison with a frozen version.

Directions from Hungry Girl:

Ingredients:
8 oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast; cut into bite-sized pieces
3 cups C&W Ultimate Petite Mixed Vegetables (or any other frozen mixed vegetables)
1 can (10.75 oz.) Campbell's Condensed Soup, 98% Fat Free Cream of Celery
3 servings Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls (unprepared)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Saute chicken pieces for several minutes in a pan spritzed with nonstick cooking spray, until chicken is light brown/cooked but still tender; set aside. Heat frozen veggies in microwave according to package. Mix chicken, vegetables and soup together and put in a 9" round baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Place dish in oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly (stir about halfway through). While dish is cooking, unroll 3 crescent rolls. Combine pieces together with hands to make one large ball of dough. With a rolling pin, roll dough out into a circle to cover top of dish. Add dough to the top of the dish and cook for an additional 15 - 20 minutes or until top is golden brown. Serves 4.


My Two Sense: 
My recommendation is to make the extra rolls and put them on the table for all to share.
