Sorry, no photos to go with today’s meal plan. I know that’s a little boring, but I didn’t have any on hand for these meals, and I don’t have time to make all the meals just to take a picture of them all. You’ll just have to use your imagination on this one!
Now, let’s talk Chicken Pot Pie. This has got to be the hardest food I’ve tried to make clean. Chicken Pot Pie is a total comfort food, so taking away all the yummy carbs and fat, is rather difficult, but I managed pretty well.
Sadly, my family pretty much dove head first into and devoured it in record time, so I have no photos of it either. All you would have seen is an empty pie plate!
My serving of this dish was much smaller than the rest of my families. In fact my plate was more salad than pot pie, but it was so so tasty!
Cleaner Chicken Pot Pie
Make pie crust using whole wheat flour, and organic butter.
21/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 tsp salt
8-10 Tbs cold water
mix well and shape into two pie crust circles. Chill till ready to use.
1 large chicken breast cooked and cubed into bite size pieces
1 Tbs butter
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 small onion diced
1 bag frozen mixed veggies
2 cups unsweetend almond milk
1 garlic clove minced
salt and pepper to taste
In a large saucepan melt butter. Add garlic to melted butter and saute for 1 minute. Add flour and mix till combined. Stir in almond milk removing any lumps from the flour and butter mixture, sauce should begin to thicken. Add onion and veggies and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Add chicken and salt and pepper to taste.
Place pie crust in the bottom of a pie plate. Add the chicken mixture, and cover with the top crust. Make small slits it the tof crust to allow crust to breathe. Bake in 350 oven for 30-35 minutes.
With all the almond milk, and flour, this is a pretty carb heavy meal. So unless you saved up your carbs for the day, you may want to do what I did, and have a smaller portion. I will say this, it didn’t taste like a healty version, and my girls didn’t know the difference. So that’s a WIN in my book.
