yuck! 4 carbs is good but hardly deserves the "pot pie" name. Search the web there are better recipes out there

If this is one (1) serving, how does it come to 415 calories when it starts with 1.5 pounds of chicken and 3 tbls of oil (let along 10 oz of cheese) ?

Perhaps four (4) servings of 415 calories each ?

For blanching, just boil some water in a saucepan and then dip the veggies just long enough to soften them a little. A slotted spoon is good for removing the veggies from the boiling water.

This is in answer to mo91108.
Being it said drain after blanching, I would assume that the celery and green pepper is brought to a boil then drained. The only other thing I would suggest is that you check meaning of word 'blanch' on computer or in dictionary. Sure there is more than one meaning so make sure that the one you read is to do with cooking.
Hope this is of help to you.

What is blanching the celery and green peppers? I wanna make this, but don;t know what blanching is. :]

This sounds great. I am always looking for new recipes. As long as I don't have to make a crust lol.

It does sound good, but I'd probably like it better without the cheese. That's the beauty of making something from scratch, isn't it? I might add mushrooms to take the place…

Oh, this sounds like a winner too! Before I was dx;ed with D the crust of a pot-pie was always my favorite part, guess I'll have to just enjoy the innards now :)
