This Weight Watchers Chicken Pot Pie recipe is one of my favorite Weight Watchers chicken recipes ever.
I have been making homemade chicken pot pie for years, but it was full of fat and calories, I stopped making it. It's really a shame because my kids loved it, but I didn't feel like I was doing them any favors by feeding them unhealthy meals.
If I had known about this delicious recipe, I would have made it years ago. This lighter version is now in my regular meal plan rotation.
If you're looking for chicken Weight Watchers recipes, what could be better than chicken pot pie at the end of a long day? This is one of my favorite comfort foods!
I was planning to hit the grocery store today and had no idea what I was going to make for dinner. Do you ever feel that way?
I get stuck in a rut and make the same thing over and over. I picked up the latest Weight Watchers magazine to look for new recipes and found this one.
After being press trips recently - first the Carolina Beach tasting history tour, followed by all kinds of things to do in Winter Park near Orlando, it was time to get back on the Weight Watchers plan!
It was a great idea because this chicken pot pie recipe with biscuits is going into my new rotation. I so enjoy cooking when I make something my family loves! That's another great thing about Weight Watchers; it's healthier food the whole family can eat!
I did change this recipe a bit. I used regular white mushrooms and green beans instead of peas, and I didn't use the full amount of cayenne because my daughter doesn't like spicy.
I also bought the mushrooms and carrots already sliced. Don't judge me. I use every time-saver I can!
What Goes Into this Recipe
Butter - we use it, we just only use what we need to get that butter flavor.
Fat Free Half & Half - added to the butter, it gives the sauce that creamy texture and rich flavor.
Reduced Fat Bisquick - for those perfect biscuits on top!

Slowly sprinkle in ¼ cup of flour. Mix until flour is incorporated.
Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 1 minute.
Add fat-free half and half, chicken, green beans, thyme, salt, and cayenne.

Mix until just combined.

Don't! It will be just as delicious the next day for lunch. Smart Points per serving: 5
There is so much you could add to this recipe to change it up a little. As veggies are zero SmartPoints, load them up! You could add white potatoes, sweet potatoes, fresh peas, or corn.
Skinless chicken breasts would delicious and a little healthier than the rotisserie chicken we used.
Switch out the chicken for cubed lean beef and beef broth. Keep the thyme as it really rounds out the flavor.
You could even make this with shrimp, which is a low SmartPoints food. Use seafood broth instead of chicken for extra flavor.
