Dr Oz was joined by the Kitchen Diva, Angela Medearis, to give her top secret Healthy Chicken Pot Pie Recipe. Doctor Oz first did a blindfolded taste test of the Kitchen Diva’s secret ingredient – and his guess was oh so wrong! The secret ingredient for the Kitchen Diva’s Chicken Pot Pie Recipe is sweet potatoes. Sweet Potatoes are full of beta carotene and keep your skin looking great, plus it is good for Diabetics or people who are Insulin Resistant.
The Kitchen Diva made her Chicken Pot Pie sauce out of dijon mustard, olive oil and some flour to thicken it up. I wonder if there is not a way to thicken up the sauce without flour though – I do believe I read of a healthier way to thicken sauce recently. I will update this post if I can dig up the article I am thinking of! Or if you know of a healthy way to thicken sauce without flour, please post it in the comment section below!
Dr Oz Chicken Pot Pie Recipe
Dr Oz was impressed by how healthy the Kitchen Diva was able to make her Chicken Pot Pie – regular chicken pot pie recipes have 1000 calories and 20 grams of fat per serving, but Angela Medearis’ Chicken Pot Pie Recipe has just 350 calories and 5 grams of fat per serving. That is a massive difference!
After you make the sauce, you add either fresh or frozen vegetables to the sauce, sweet potatoes and chicken chunks. Pour the mixture into an oven-safe dish and cover it with a healthier biscuit mix that is sprinkled with herbs on the top. The Kitchen Diva told Dr Oz that she bakes her Chicken Pot Pies at 350 degrees, but online it said 400 degrees. So we will just have to experiment to figure out which is best!

I was hoping to find all of the nutritional information–not just calories and fat content. I am on the weight watcher’s program and I need the fiber content per serving in order to calculate the points per serving.
Dessa, I am afraid that only the fat and calories were mentioned on the Dr Oz Show. However, I put all of the ingredients into a Recipe Nutrition Facts Calculator, and here is the information from it (but of course this is just an estimate too). Hope this helps!
Cholesterol – 94 mg
Sodium – 918 mg
Potassium – 373 mg
Total Carbohydrate – 41 g
Dietary Fiber – 5.2 g
Sugars – 5 g
Protein – 26 g
If you need to increase the fiber content, I bet you could play around with the recipe by adding more fiber-rich vegetables. What do you think?
