Turkey Pot Pie

Turkey Pot Pie

This is so good, you might find yourself doing turkey more often, but it works equally well with chicken. To balance out the carbohydrates from the crust AND eliminate the high-carbohydrate potatoes and peas from standard pot pie recipes, I replaced those with cauliflower and/or turnip and fresh carrots and green beans. So, I was able to keep the net carbohydrate count down. By using spices for flavor you can make the filling and sauce in big batches and freeze them.
Stuffed “Greek” Chicken

Stuffed “Greek” Chicken

Spinach, onion, feta and lemon are just made for each other. Frozen spinach is not only easier to use, but just as good. One of the best things about stuffed chicken is that you can do it in advance, refrigerate it, and pop it in the oven when you need it. This recipe freezes in the “raw” state very well. For those of you that prefer the dark meat, skinless boneless chicken thighs work just as well.
