I admit it, I'm one of those people who keep old magazines because I just know there is probably something there that I might want to refer to later. Recently, I was looking through some Cooking Light magazines from Jan/Feb. 2010 [actually, I was trying to put myself to sleep without any Advil PM]!
So happy I saved that one and you will be too!
Look what I made the other night! It was speedy and delicious -- two requirements for me to cook! Plus -- there are loads of good recipes in this old issue, so stay tuned for more of my delightful Sunday Specials!! :) The strips of piecrust on top are so delish!
Here's how you make it! Recipe courtesy of Cooking Light, Jan/Feb. 2010 edition.
SPEEDY CHICKEN POTPIE [printable recipe]• 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 black pepper
• 1/4 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
• 1/4 (15-ounce) package refrigerated piecrust dough
• 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.
• 3. While chicken cooks, bring 2 1/2 cups broth and bay leaf to a boil in a large saucepan. Add potatoes; cover and cook over medium-high heat 8 minutes. 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.
• 4. While potato mixture cooks, cut piecrust dough crosswise into 12 strips. Arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 7 minutes or until browned and puffy. Top chicken mixture with piecrust strips.
Enjoy! Plus, since you've saved all those calories,
feel free to have something chocolate and yummy for dessert!
