Chicken Pot Pie

This is my favorite version of this dish:

What you need!

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup Zesty Italian Dressing (I think I use a little more of that)
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) Cream Cheese, cubed
2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 cup chicken broth (again I use a little more)
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
1 refrigerated pie crust (1/2 of 15-oz. pkg.)

*Heat oven to 375°F.
*Cook chicken in dressing in large skillet on medium heat for about 2 min

*Add cream cheese
*Cook and stir until melted
*Add flour and mix well

*Add broth and vegetables; simmer 5 min

*Pour mixture into deep dish 10-inch pie plate (I don't have one so I used a casserole dish)
*Arrange pie crust over filling; flute edges.
*Cut 4 slits in crust to allow steam to escape.
*Bake for 30 min. or until crust is golden brown.

I love this dish because it's so easy and fast to make. The prep time takes about 10- 15 min and then you just let it bake for 30 min.
Cost is about $6.
