Recipe for Chicken Pot Pie

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.

Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup

Replace this homemade cream of chicken soup with the canned version. This is a lot healthier than the canned soups.  And personally we like it a lot better than the canned cream soup!
  • 1/3 cup butter or stick margarine
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup milk
In saucepan melt butter. Whisk in flour until thickens. Whisk in chicken broth and pepper. Bring to a boil until thickens. Whisk in milk and again bring to a boil until thickens set aside and allow to cool.

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 until warmed.

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 until warm.
