Chicken Potpie

Fall 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (232 votes)

This chicken potpie is studded with peas, mushrooms, carrots and onions and topped with tender whole-wheat biscuits. The savory sauce gets a rich taste from reduced-fat sour cream, but with less fat and calories. And it ends up just as delicious and comforting as you expect.



READER'S COMMENT:
"This sounds like a great recipe, but I would not use canola oil as it is just a cheap commerically produced oil that isn't healhy, just cheap. It is being touted as being healthy but that is not true at all. Olive oil and sunflower oils...

Great potpie!

I have made chicken potpie using a recipe with a lot more fat. However, this recipe rivals the fatty one as it has really good flavor and is much healthier. Bonus that it doesn't take nearly as long to make as others. I substituted yukon potatoes (very thinly sliced) for the mushrooms. If you do this, be sure to cook them long enough in the pan to soften them before putting them in the oven. Also season the meat and veggies as you're cooking them in the pan otherwise the potpie may be bland. Very good recipe!

Made this again using leftover shredded chuck roast and beef broth instead of chicken. Was really good as well!

The perfect chicken pot pie!

I have tried for several years to achieve the perfect chicken pot pie, only to fail time after time. Either the crust was not right, or the filling was off. But, FINALLY, my search is over! This chicken pot pie was the most delicious I've ever made! And my spouse and I both agreed on this fact! It tastes like comfort food, without the guilt. And the biscuit crust was not too heavy, but still hardy (the thyme is an excellent addition). We did chop the vegetables up a little bit more than the recipe calls for, and we shredded the chicken, but everything else was followed verbatim. I will definitely be making this again, and I highly recommend!

Delicious, comforting, healthy

This was a great way to get rid of leftover Thanksgiving turkey!! Unfortunately, my husband does not like onions (unless I grate/puree them and he has no idea they're in a dish!), so I chopped up celery and sprinkled onion powder (which he does like- go figure!!) in place of the pearl onions. Super easy recipe that everyone- including the picky 5 year old- loved!!! Thanks, EatingWell (again!!)
