Weekend Cooking: Chicken Pot Pie by Michelle Buffardi in Healthy Recipes, April 20, 2012
Pot pie is one of those comfort foods that sounds like it would be really unhealthy, but it’s actually not at all. Chicken pot pie is basically a chicken stew that has a crust on top. Some recipes call for heavy cream or cream of chicken soup, but if you use low-fat milk and pack your pie with herbs and savory vegetables, you won’t miss that stuff at all.
Food Network Magazine’s Light Chicken Pot Pie calls for low-fat milk and fat-free Greek yogurt to make a creamy gravy for the chicken-and-vegetable filling. The top crust needs to chill for at least an hour, so start the dish in the morning and bake it before dinner.
