Deep Dish Chicken Pot Pie

I found this on the Kraft website. Click here to see it.

Deep Dish Chicken Pot Pie

1 lb Boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 Cup Light Zesty Italian Dressing
4 Ounce Philadelphia Neufchatel Cheese, cubed (cream cheese)
2 Tbsp. Flour
1/2 Cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 Package 10 oz. frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
1 refrigerated pie crust

HEAT oven to 375°F. Cook chicken in dressing in large skillet on medium heat 2 min. Add Neufchatel cheese; cook and stir until melted. Add flour; mix well. Add broth and vegetables; simmer 5 min.

POUR mixture into deep dish 10-inch pie plate. Arrange pie crust over filling; flute edges. Cut 4 slits in crust to allow steam to escape.

BAKE 30 min. or until crust is golden brown.

Here is what I did different:
I used 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese to help cut calories.
I used fresh carrots, 1 can corn, and 1 can green beans in place of the frozen veggies. I added the carrots when the chicken was almost done cooking and let them cook on the stove a little longer.

This is a great recipe for a cold night or when you are sick. Very easy to make and clean up was easy as well.
