Helpful hints

  • Farfelle pasta is also known as pot pie bows.
  • The potatoes are double cooked to remove part of the potassium. If you are not on a low potassium diet you can skip this step.
  • Freeze leftovers in individual portions for a quick meal later.
  • You can reduce the chicken to 1 pound if you are on a lower protein diet.

Chicken Pot Pie
bandjhobbs says:

To lower potassium couldn't you eliminate potatoes, 1/2 cup of celery instead of 1 cup. Add 1 cup Mixed vegetables ie; corn, green beans, peas. Saute carrots, celery and onions in a sauce pan with Olive Oil spray to enhance flavor then add to pot with chicken? Dietitian comment: Yes! All of those changes will decrease potassium. You can use the DaVita Diet Helper My Creations feature to enter the changed recipe and see the nutrient profile.

It was bland, but I added a little Parmesan Cheese and some Breakstone's all natural Sour Cream (10 mg sodium per 2 Tbsps.) We called it chicken soup and liked it very much.

Hey, Has anyone on your staff made & sampled this Chicken Pot Pie recipe? Perhaps it is our taste buds but this is a terrible recipe. I would ask that you not present recipes 'till they've been made & sampled because we've enough on our plates without spending extras time reworking an already made dish-The amount of water might be part of the problem. Why so much? I rinsed everything off the chicken breast meat & made the simple recipe I've always used with The Renal Disease in mind & cooking to that problem. I really do not want to carp but please make & sample before posting recipes as great. Thank you. Dietitian comment: I'm sorry this recipe did not work for you. We ask our dietitians who submit the recipes to kitchen test them. The amount of water could be decreased. We will retest the recipe and update if changes are made.

Did not enjoy this one. The recipe was too bland. Needed more pepper and thyme at least. This was not what I imagine when I hear pot pie. This was more like a chicken soup with lots of noodles. I have enjoyed most recipes that I have tried, but would not make this again. My chicken soup is more flavorful than this even without any salt. So sorry for my rudeness.
