Make this Jack-O-Lantern Healthy Chicken Pot Pie Recipe for a fun and festive Halloween dinner!
I love Fall. It is my absolute favorite time of year. Though I don't like COLD weather, I do like nice crisp mornings and snuggling up with Mike in front of the fire in the evenings... following an amazingly tasty meal. This year I am already preparing for the holidays by making recipes that are as healthy as they are delicious - and even sometimes making myself a completely different meal than my family... after all, *I* am on this diet, not them.
Tonight I made my very first ever Chicken Pot Pie - a "healthy-ish" version for me, and a "normal" version for them. To be honest... I could not tell the difference between the two. Both of them were delicious and I am excited to have a new, simple meal to add to my repertoire.

My Dad came over tonight and the five of us absolutely LOVED these pies. I do not know that I have ever eaten a chicken pot pie before, but after tasting this one, I know this will be something we make often during the cool nights of Fall and Winter. I wonder if I can cut a turkey into the top crust... hmmm...
Andrew @ Mommy's Busy says
Yum! I LOOOOVE Chicken Pot Pies. My wife made me a healthy one once which was great, but she made the crust herself to be healthier, so it was a bit of a project. I'll have to share this with her to give a try!
Oh that looks good! I love the Halloween face - who could not resist that awesome pie. Go Chef Lynsey!
Sara Phillips says
YUM!! I think I'd make my own 'cream of' soup so that it has less sodium, but YES! I will be making this!
