Here is a great recipe for chicken pot pie. You can change this
recipe up by making one large pie or try individual pot pies. Don't
buy the frozen pot pies that are really high in fat and
preservatives. All you have to do is use this recipe and prepare
them in mini tin foil pie plates or small ramekins, if you're lucky
enough to have some.
You can also cut back on calories by cutting out the bottom pie
crust. Fill your pie ingredients on the bottom then add your crust
on the top. Don't forget to add slits or use a mini cookie cutter to
cut out a shape for the top crust.

we like it a lot better than the canned cream soup!

Making Homemade Pie Crust
Chicken Pie Casserole
If you want to save time and calories make your chicken pie filling
and leave off the pie crusts. This makes an easy chicken casserole.
I used all fresh, not frozen vegetables, so I precooked the
vegetables in water for about 5-10 minutes until they were slightly
tender. I cooked the chicken and chopped it into pieces. Toss the
cooked chicken and vegetables together. Mix your cream of chicken
soup with the mixture until well combined. Heat about 10-15 minutes
I often prep this the night before, stick it in the fridge wrapped.
For dinner place in the oven at 350 degrees and bake 15-20 minutes
