By: Herald Staff Report,

February is Potato Lover’s as well as American Heart Month. Celebrate both with this recipe. (Research potassium-rich potatoes may help lower blood pressure.)

Chicken-Potato Pot Pie

2 medium russet, white or yellow-flesh potatoes or 3-4 small red potatoes

1 chicken breast (6 to 8 ounces)

1 10¾-ounce can cream of chicken soup

1 cup frozen vegetable blend

1 package refrigerated pie dough

1 egg, beaten

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Slice across into ¼-inch thick half moons. On separate cutting board, cut chicken into small, uniform cubes.

In a 1-quart microwave-safe dish, combine soup, vegetables, potatoes, chicken and one soup can of water, mixing well. Top mixture with pie dough. Brush dough with egg. Microwave on high for 20 minutes (cooking time may vary depending on your microwave) or until potatoes and chicken are done.

Let sit for 2 minutes. Use oven mitts or tongs to remove from microwave.

Yield: Serves 2.
