I know I’m always preaching about low sodium eating, but some of my recipes are pretty time intensive. Even though I work from home, I don’t always have the time to make all of our meals from scratch. On those busy days, that’s when semi-homemade recipes like this easy low sodium Chicken Pot Pie come in handy. It’s not the prettiest dish on the planet by any means, but my family loves it. The typical frozen chicken pot pie, even most recipes you’ll see, house 580+ mg of sodium. This recipe is only 131 mg of sodium per serving and super simple to make.
Low Sodium Chicken Pot Pie Ingredients:
- 2 medium sized chicken breasts
- 1 can 25% Less Sodium Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom or Chicken Soup
- 1 can No Salt Added Veg-All
- 2 frozen pie crusts
Preparation and Cooking Instructions:
- Thaw your pie crust for about an hour so that you can work with it.
- Boil the 2 chicken breasts in water until thoroughly cooked, shred, and place in a large mixing bowl.
- Pour the remaining ingredients in the bowl with the chicken and mix thoroughly.
- Pour mixture into lower pie crust.
- Remove the other pie crust from the tin and gently place it over the mixture.
- Crimp the outer edges of the pie crusts together to seal in the mixture.
- Cut an X into the middle of the upper pie crust to vent while cooking so the mixture won’t seep out the sides.
- Bake according to pie crust instructions since everything inside only needs to be warmed up.
When it’s ready, the crust will be a nice crispy golden color. Just let it cool for a little bit, slice your pie into 8 pieces, serve, and enjoy. There’s really no need to add a side to this dish since you already have your meat, veggies, and bread covered. But tip from my husband, apparently this dish is amazing with a side of cranberry sauce so I guess I highly recommend that. This is probably my quickest go-to meal on busy work/school nights and it’s one that my family asks for often.
