Meet Healthy Chicken Pot Pie. With its creamy filling, extra veggies, chunks of juicy chicken, and surprisingly light calorie count, it is a champion wholesome comfort food. This easy chicken pot pie recipe has earned the esteem of judges ranging from picky toddlers, to discerning adults, to the greatest classic chicken pot pie judge of them all: my husband Ben.
When Ben and I were first married, his mom gifted me his two favorite recipes: the family heirloom chocolate chip cookies and her chicken pot pie with pie crust. After a series of failed attempts, I abandoned the cookies. I maintain that an ingredient was missing from the recipe. Or perhaps cookies are an untouchable food, one where mom (and nostalgia) always know best…at least until my cookbook comes out. It has the best chocolate chip cookie recipe EVER. Not that I am biased or anything.
My chicken pot pie, however? ROARING SUCCESS.
This healthy chicken pot pie recipe goes far beyond a silly, lovingly intentioned mother-versus-daughter-in-law “who cooked it best” debate.
It represents what I strive to achieve with so many of my recipes: a lighter, better-for-you version of a favorite comfort food that is every bit as delicious and satisfying as the original. (more…)
