New Recipe: Chicken Pot Pie

Happy Tasty Tuesday!
I'm a huge fan of quick and simple recipes because the last thing I feel like doing when I get home from work is making a long tedious meal.  Even if a recipe is delicious, I’m less likely to make it again if it took more than 1 hour to make. I originally saw this recipe for chicken pot pie on the Doctor Oz show and although he said it’s a nice healthy dinner, I think its full of flavor and doesn’t seem like your traditional bland chicken and vegetable meal. Plus its super easy to make and takes only 20 minutes to prepare…Jackpot!

  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 1 ½ cups frozen peas
  • 1 large package of frozen vegetables (I like the broccoli, cauliflower and carrot medley)
  • 1 rotisserie chicken from the market    
  • ½ cup low-fat cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  •   ½ cup skim milk
  • ½ teaspoon celery salt
  • Pillsbury pre-made pie crust (I like to cheat and buy the pre-made stuff, it tastes just as good)
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly cover a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray
  •  Add 1 tablespoon of oil to a large skillet and set to medium heat
  • Add the onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes
  •  Stir in the flour until completely combined
  • Pour in the chicken broth and milk, whisking slowly until combined. Cook at a simmer for about 5 minutes, until thickened.
  • Whisk in the cheddar cheese until melted. While this melts shred the rotisserie chicken.
  • Add the chicken, peas, vegetables and celery salt. Mix together.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared piecrust. Add top of piecrust and slice vents into the top of the crust. Bake for 30-40 minutes until crust is golden brown.
  • ENJOY!
