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

    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 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

    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
