“My friends tell me this is the best potpie,” writes Stratford, Ontario’s Agnes Ward. Hearty and full-flavored, this meal-in-one never lets on that it’s low fat and full of fiber.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 45 min. Bake: 20 min. + standing YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
