Weeknight Chicken Pot Pie Recipe


  • 3 cups diced Cooked Chicken
  • 1 cup chopped Green Onions
  • 3 Tbl Butter
  • 1/2 cup Dry Vermouth (white)
  • 1 Tbl Thyme (dried)
  • 2 Tbl Better than Bouillon Chicken
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 Tbl Parsley (dried)
  • 3 cups Mixed Frozen Vegetables (I chose a blend of peas, carrots, corn and green beans)
  • 2 cups diced Cooked Potatoes
  • 2 cups Fat Free Milk
  • 1/4 cup Cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup water
  • 1 Package of Low Fat Pillsbury Crescent Rolls


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In dutch oven (or large pot that is oven safe), saute butter with green onions and chicken for about a minute until chicken starts to get hot.  Add Vermouth and cook for one more minute.

Next add thyme, better than bouillon, pepper, parsley, and veggies.  Cook and stir for a couple of minutes until the vegetables bouillon is well incorporated.  Add the milk and bring to a boil.

Slowly add cornstarch and water mixture.  Bring back to a boil and cook for at least one minute to thicken the gravy.  Remove from heat.

Layer the crescent rolls on top of the chicken mixture. It’s ok to have a couple holes and no need to seal to the edges.

Place in oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until the crescent rolls are light brown in color.  Remove from oven and serve.
