Dinner Tonite: Chicken Vegetable Pot Pie

I found a pastry dough crust in my freezer this morning and I instantly thought Chicken Vegetable Pot Pie! Much like my Leek and Mushroom Chicken Pot Pie..but just lots of veggies and chicken of course. Make a wonderful meal that has been one of my husbands favorites for years..Plus the aroma that fills your kitchen is so comforting; to me its just heaven!

1 lb thin cut chicken breast cut into cubes, season with salt and pepper

1 package of white mushrooms cleaned and sliced

1 small onion diced

2 stalk of celery chopped

1 large sweet potato peeled and diced

2 carrots chopped

1 zucchini diced

1 yellow squash diced

4-5 garlic cloves diced

1/2 cup fat free creamer

1 cup fat free chicken broth

1 tbsp cornstarch

1 tbsp thyme

1 tbsp Italian seasoning

salt and pepper (lots of pepper)

1tsp red pepper flakes 🙂

2 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp unsalted butter

1 tbsp reduced fat Parmesan cheese

1 fresh roll of pastry dough

Pre heat oven to 350. In a large pan on the stove top and medium high, heat 2 tbsp olive oil and 1 tbsp unsalted butter..add onion and garlic. Heat 2-3 minutes then add chicken. Brown chicken on both sides and add vegetables and herbs  . Cook about 5 minutes, add in chicken broth and simmer. Slowly add in fat free creamer and mix well. Add cornstarch, stir in so that the mixture is slightly thicker ( add more if you want it really thick!) Season with salt,pepper and red pepper flakes Pour ingredients into large and deep casserole dish. Roll out pastry dough on top of the pie, and brush with olive oil and sprinkle reduced fat Parmesan cheese on top! Bake 35-40 minutes…Until pastry dough is cooked and browned. Serve in big bowls and Enjoy!
