Chicken Pot Pie, Lightened Up!

My  memories of chicken pot pie were those small little pies in the frozen section which were 90% crust with just a little bit of filling but I loved them when I was little!  I've had a craving for pot pie even though I haven't ate when since I was probably 5 years old!  I saw a recipe on Annie's Eats for chicken pot pie but after running it through the recipe builder on Weight Watchers, it came out to 32 points!  I only get 29 points a day, so I filed that recipe for a later time when I have a splurge meal but it had no business in my food plan for this week!

So I searched on Weight Watchers and "Old- Fashioned Chicken Pot Pie" for 6 points came up with over 800 reviews averaging 4 1/2 stars!!  I made it and it was sooooooooooooo yummy!! The filling was creamy with great flavor and the topping add just enough reminder of crust but without the guilt and calories of a traditional crust.  I always buy rotisserie chickens at Fred Meyers and either shred or chop the meat after removing the skins. 

Also, just a note that mine looked nothing like the picture as far as the filling was concerned, it looked more like traditional pot pie!  Next time I think I'm going to cook some yukon gold potatoes in the microwave and then chop them up and add them to the filling. Give it a try, I think you are going to love it!
