 I got this in an e-mail from Parents.

Chicken Pot Pie

  • 4  teaspoons  olive oil
  • 3/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  black pepper
  • 1-1/2  pounds  boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1  cup  chopped onion
  • 3/4  cup  chopped celery
  • 2  cloves  garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/3  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1  can  (14-1/2 ounces) fat-free chicken broth
  • 1-1/2  cups  low-fat (1%) milk
  • 2  medium-size  red skinned potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1-1/2  cups  baby carrots, quartered
  • 1/2  pound  green beans, chopped
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped parsley
  • 1  teaspoon  rubbed sage
  • 4  sheets  frozen phyllo dough, thawed
  • 1/4  cup  grated Parmesan cheese

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Coat a 3-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Cook 8 minutes, turning halfway through cooking time. Transfer to a plate.

3. Add remaining oil, onion and celery; cook 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and flour and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Gradually stir in broth and milk. Cook, stirring, until mixture comes to a boil.

4. Add potatoes, carrots, green beans, remaining salt and pepper. Cover; cook on medium-low, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Stir in chicken, parsley and sage. Spoon into prepared baking dish.

5. Unroll phyllo. Place 1 sheet on top of chicken mixture; lightly coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the cheese. Repeat layering. Tuck edges of phyllo inside rim of baking dish.

6. Place baking dish on a baking sheet; bake at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until filling is bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes.
