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.
