  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 1/4 cups chicken mixture and 3 piecrust strips)

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth, divided
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 cups refrigerated diced potatoes with onion (such as Simply Potatoes)
  • 2/3 cup frozen green peas and diced carrot blend
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
  • 1/4 (15-ounce) package refrigerated piecrust dough

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add chicken to pan; sprinkle with salt. Sauté 5 minutes or until browned and done.

Stir in peas and carrots; cover and cook 2 minutes. Stir in chicken. Combine remaining 1/2 cup broth and flour; stir into potato mixture. Reduce heat to medium; cook 2 minutes or until bubbly and thick. Remove bay leaf. Stir in thyme, pepper, and sage.
