1 small onion, minced
1 pkg (8-oz) fresh sliced mushroom
1/2 tsp salt
1 pkg (10-oz) frozen mixed vegetables, thawed and drained
3 cups chopped or shredded rotisserie chicken
1 can reduced-sodium cream of chicken soup
2/3 cup low-fat milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion to the butter and cook, stirring occasionally, a few minutes until tender. Add the mushrooms and salt to the onions. Cook until the liquid evaporates and mushrooms are lightly browned. Add the vegetables, chicken, soup, milk, and lemon juice; stir to blend well.
Pour the mixture into a 10-inch deep dish pie plate that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Place the sheet of puff pastry and trim off excess pastry. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until the filling is bubbly and the crust is browned.
Yield: 6 servings
Note: The puff pastry makes this pot pie much better for a diabetic than a regular flour crust. The chicken and mushrooms give this dish a good amount of protein versus carbs.
