Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 deep-dish frozen pie crust
    2 leeks, white part only, washed and sliced
    1/4 cup unsalted butter
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    dash black pepper
    1 cup chicken stock, low sodium
    16 ounces chicken, white meat, cooked and diced
    1 bag (10 ounces) frozen mixed vegetables
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Tips

You can make this without the crust, using a 9" deep-dish pie pan coated with cooking spray. You'll save 108 calories per serving.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place a large saucepan over medium heat, then add the butter.
When the butter has melted, add the sliced leeks and saute for 1-2 minutes.

Add the flour, and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

Slowly add the stock and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer until the mixture thickens.

Add the thyme, vegetables, and chicken; stir to combine.

Prick the bottom of the pie crust with a fork and place on a sheet pan; fill with the chicken mixture and bake for 30 minutes.

Cool 4-5 minutes before serving.

Serves six.

    I do this, but instead of all butter use a combo of butter/olive oil to saute the leeks, and put the crust on top instead of on the bottom. Great way to use up leftover chicken/turkey and veg. - 10/6/10

    Wow, the thyme and the Leeks really do the trick with this meal. My husband used "Mediterrerian Veggies" (cauli, carrots, italian beans, red bell pepper) instead of what I refer to as the Horrid Mix (carrots, corn, green beans, and lima beans) - Good good good! - 10/20/10

    I used left over turkey, broccoli, and carrots. One cup of broth was not enough - it was way to thick so I added another cup of broth and some milk. Instead of a bottom crust, I put on a top crust using a Pillsbury pie crust. It was great - everyone loved it. Great flavor. Will make again. - 11/20/10

    This is how I do my pot pie already. Add in more broth for sure. Too dry. I also add a 1/4 cup of Sherry. You will love the Sherry! Try it. I got it off of a Southern recipe blog and I will never do a pot pie without it. It makes the pot pie amazing! - 3/26/12

    I actually quite liked how easy this recipe was. However, I found the filling just a bit too dry. As per some of the suggestions, I added 1/2 cup extra broth, but think next time I will use even more. Also, I didn't have leek, so I used a regular, diced onion and garlic powder instead of thyme. - 11/29/10

    Very good.I love pot pies anyway and this stands up there with the best. Next time I'll try it with a few potato slices on top. Like sheppard's pie? We'll see! Granzam - 3/13/10

    I did mine with turkey and I used the basil instead of the thyme. I think thyme would be wonderful with the chicken.
    Oh and I used the coconut oil instead of the butter and I did put the crust on top.
    Thanks - 11/26/10

    My whole family loved this dish. It was simple and flavorful. I loved that the filling was thicker than most potpies. It didn't run all over when I cut each piece. Definitely a keeper. - 5/22/11

    I added an extra 1/2 c. of broth and a 1/4 cup of sherry after reading some of the other comments. Absolutely amazing! Will be making this again and again and again. - 10/7/12

    I do a similar chicken pie. I don't use flour, I thicken with a little cornstarch. I also use corn instead of mixed veg, to make it a chicken and corn pie. No butter is used to help reduce the fat content. I make it up as a soup base and from that I can also make a stew, risotto, pasta, pastries. - 3/25/12

    The "pot pie" I learned to make, my paternal grandmother's recipe, didn't have a crust. It has thick homemade, almost dumpling like egg noodles and stewed in a stockpot. The meat and veggie pies are just that. Pies! There is no "pot" involved. - 3/25/13
