  • Bake pastry shells as directed on pkg. Meanwhile, cook and stir mushrooms in butter in medium saucepan until tender. Add chicken breasts strips; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; set aside.
  • Prepare white sauce in large saucepan as directed on pkg., using the fat-free milk. Add cream cheese spread; cook until cream cheese is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently. Add chicken mixture and parsley; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove center cutout from each pastry shell; set aside. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the chicken mixture into each pastry shell. Sprinkle evenly with almonds; top with pastry cutouts.

Serving Suggestion

Balance this special-occasion entree with smart side dishes. For example, try a mixed green salad and a hot steamed vegetable.

Special Extra

Use toasted almonds for extra flavor. To toast, cook and stir almonds in skillet on medium-high heat until lightly browned. The natural oils from the almonds prevent them from sticking to the pan.

    This was excellent. I made a mistake by making the white sauce/gravy following the package directions before seeing I was to sub the mike for water but even with this it was great! I think next time I might sub cream for the milk. But as my wife said " this is a keeper"
