Gluten Free Turkey Pot Pie – 9 Points +

 

A couple of weeks ago we went hiking on Saturday, and we had cranberry and turkey breast sandwiches (truly delicious, a family favorite after Thanksgiving). I had lots of turkey leftover, so I made a turkey pot pie, but this is a traditional chicken pot pie recipe (you can use chicken or turkey, whatever you happen to have leftover). It was my first try in a long time to make gluten free pie crust and it was a huge success. The crust turned out light and flaky and incredibly delicious. However, gluten free pie crusts are a very tender and can be a little difficult to work with – but this one is worth it. If you don’t need to make it gluten free, just use two prepared 9-inch pie crusts. Or, if you’re short on time, there are prepared gluten free pie crusts you could use as well. This recipe is incredibly tasty and full of flavor – my husband and I both loved it.

Light Chicken Pot Pie Recipe – 4 Points +

Light Chicken Pot Pie

Nothing says classic American comfort food to me like a homemade chicken pot pie. It’s so hearty and filling, and always feels good on a chilly fall or winter day. But traditional chicken pot pie recipes can be pretty high in fat and calories. By making a few changes and using a reduced fat crescent roll dough for the crust, I was able to create a chicken pot pie recipe that clocks in at just 4 Points + per serving and tastes every bit as good as it’s more fattening version. My husband absolutely loved this Weight Watchers recipe, and I take that as the ultimate success indicator, since he is pretty picky. I made this originally as a 6 serving recipe at 4 Points + per serving, but if you want a bigger piece of the pie, you can make it 4 servings for 6 Points + per serving. Either way, this low calorie Chicken Pot Pie Recipe is a fantastic bargain. Enjoy!

Chicken Pot Pie Recipe- 4 Point Total

Chicken Pot Pie

I have loved chicken pot pie ever since I was a kid. There’s something about biting into that buttery crust and getting a mouthful of that creamy, chicken-y sauce that is just truly an experience. But now that I am on the Weight Watchers program, I figured that I’d have to forego my beloved chicken pot pie recipes for good. But then, in my eagerness to indulge in it again, I experimented with a traditional recipe, and came up with a pretty simple, yet tasty and low Point Total version of this American favorite. My version has just a 4 Point Total per serving and it tastes pretty darn good! One of the best low calorie chicken pot pie recipes yet! If you are looking for a good Weight Watchers casserole recipe, this is a great one to try. Though it’s not an official Weight Watchers Recipe (I have to note this for all my recipes, if you haven’t noticed by now;)), it’s a great dish for anyone who is looking to enjoy some hearty dishes, without racking up the points. Enjoy!
