VIKS CHICKY POT PIE

It’s cold and dreary here today. I know I shouldn’t complain, and that we need the rain. I am just feeling bad for myself! My allergies are killing me and I have bronchitis. Yuck!

So I decided I needed some good old comfort food. I made some chicken for the week  as I always do. CROCK POT CHICKEN FOR THE WEEK. I have been making chicken pot pie for years. Today, I tweaked it a bit so that it fit into my weight watchers plan.

It comes in at 8 smart points per serving. It’s hardy, tasty, and definitely comforting. It will also be good tomorrow in my lunch since there will be plenty left over. As my husband says, “I love when we are on a diet”.   Enjoy!!!

Til next time,

Ciao xoxo
