While traditional pot pies may require hours of preparation, our simplified version comes together in just 30 minutes, thanks to a few clever shortcuts. The secret to its golden, flaky crust? Phyllo dough, which adds a delightful crunch without the hassle of making pastry from scratch. Let’s dive into the details of this delicious dish and learn how to create a wholesome meal that the whole family will love.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can (10.5 oz) 98% fat-free cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup
  • 1 16 oz. bag frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 large cooked rotisserie chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 tbsp dry seasoning mix (garlic powder, onion powder, poultry seasoning, black pepper)
  • 1 frozen 9” pie crust (or WW 2-Ingredient dough)
  • 1 box (16 oz) Athens Phyllo Dough Sheets (5 sheets)
  • 10 sprays of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter (or ¼ cup Fleischmanns Light margarine)

Instructions:

  1. Start by chopping the cooked rotisserie chicken breast into small, bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a stockpot, combine the cubed chicken, frozen mixed vegetables, dry seasoning mix, and both cans of soup over medium-high heat. Cook until the chicken and vegetables are heated through and the flavors are well combined.
  3. While the filling cooks, prepare the pie crust. If using a frozen pie crust, simply pre-cook it according to package instructions. Alternatively, follow the steps for making the WW 2-Ingredient dough (see below).
  4. Once the filling is ready, layer the bottom of a 9” deep round pie baking dish or 8×8 baking pan with the pre-cooked pie crust.
  5. Pour the chicken and vegetable mixture into the prepared pie crust.
  6. Tear the Phyllo dough sheets into small, loosely balled-up pieces and scatter them over the top of the pie filling.
  7. Spray the Phyllo dough balls with the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter spray or brush them with melted margarine.
  8. Bake the pot pie at 425°F for 25 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and crispy.
  9. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving.

WW 2-Ingredient Dough:

For those looking for a lighter alternative to traditional pie crust, our WW 2-Ingredient dough is a game-changer. With just self-rising flour and plain fat-free Greek yogurt, you can create a versatile dough that’s perfect for a variety of recipes, from bagels to pastries to, of course, pot pie crusts.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine 1⅓ cups of self-rising flour, 1 cup of plain fat-free Greek yogurt, and a pinch of salt (optional). Stir well with a wooden spoon until just combined.
  3. Knead the dough in the bowl with your hands until smooth, about 2 minutes.
  4. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, until it’s no longer sticky. Let the dough sit for five minutes to rest.
  5. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and roll or shape them into the desired form for your recipe.
  6. Roll out the dough into a circle about 1/4 inch thick and use it to line your pie dish. Pinch up the sides and press down in the middle to form a crust.
  7. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then remove it from the oven. Increase the oven temperature to 425°F and continue with the pot pie recipe as directed above.
