Tonight I tried a recipe for Skinny Chicken Pot Pie. I adapted it slightly from Mama Laughlin's version of this recipe. There is nothing at all wrong with her recipe. I was just in a hurry and wanted more veggies.
The modifications I made were:
- Instead of boiling raw carrots, onions, and celery, I prepared a package of Steamfresh mixed vegetables in the microwave. I added these veggies and some fresh chopped onion to the broth mixture for the filling.
- Instead of using the 2 cups of liquid from the boiled vegetables (I did not have any cause I steamed my veggies), I just added two additional cups of chicken broth
The verdict? It turned out to be delicious! It didn't feel like I was eating a skinny version of anything! If you are interested in trying the recipe, click here for Mama Laughlin's recipe.
