Ingredients

2 teaspoons margarine
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion

2 cups cubed cooked chicken breasts
1 teaspoon minced fresh dill
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 reduced-fat refrigerated crescent rolls

Preparation

  1. Heat margarine and 2 tablespoons chicken broth in medium saucepan until margarine is melted. Add mushrooms, bell pepper, onion and celery. Cook 7 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring frequently.
  2. Stir in flour; cook 1 minute. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup chicken broth; cook and stir until liquid thickens. Reduce heat and stir in half-and-half. Add chicken, dill, salt and black pepper.
  3. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray 1-quart casserole with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon chicken mixture into prepared dish. Roll out crescent rolls and place on top of chicken mixture.*
  4. Bake pot pie 20 minutes or until topping is golden and filling is bubbly.

Note

For 2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast, gently simmer 3 small chicken breasts in 2 cups fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth about 20 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in center. Cool and cut into cubes. Reserve chicken broth for pot pie, if desired.
