One of the big changes I made was substituting reduced fat crescent rolls for the biscuit topping. Thought the biscuit would have been thick and fluffy, the crescents did not disappoint! They were flaky and delicious.
On the nutrition side of things, I was able to almost cut the calories in half. The most amazing alteration was the fat content! Almost 30g less than the original! The sodium content was not changed too much, since I still used some canned ingredients. Overall, this dish was very filling, flavorful and a much healthier choice.

Crescent Chicken Pot Pie
2 cups chopped, cooked chicken breast
3 hard boiled egg whites, chopped
1 cup very thinly sliced carrots
1 cup frozen green peas
1 (10 ¾ oz) 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
1 cup low fat chicken broth
¼ tsp black pepper
6 refrigerated, reduced fat crescent rolls
Canola oil spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a 2-quart casserole dish with canola spray. Spread the chicken, peas, carrots, and egg whites evenly in the dish. Mix together the soups and pour over the chicken and vegetables. Sprinkle with pepper. Lay the crescent roll dough over the top of the mixture, letting each overlap slightly. Bake until the crescents are golden brown and the mixture is bubbling, approximately 35 minutes.
