Let's Make It
Heat oven to 400°F.
Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 6 to 8 min. or until lightly browned. Add vegetables; cook 3 to 4 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently. Add all remaining ingredients except pie crust; mix lightly.
Spoon into 9-inch deep-dish pie plate sprayed with cooking spray.
Unroll pie crust onto cutting board. Use small sharp knife to cut shapes out of crust to resemble a jack-o'-lantern face. Reserve pastry cutouts.
Place crust over pie; seal and flute edge. Place pie plate on baking sheet. If desired, use pastry cutouts to make leaves, then add to top of pie.
Bake 25 to 30 min. or until golden brown.
Omit the oil. Prepare using a rotisserie chicken purchased from your supermarket. Remove chicken from the bones, then chop or shred it. Substitute 3 cups chopped chicken for the cooked cut-up chicken breasts, then, continue as directed.
Serve with a mixed green salad and glass of fat-free milk.
Cover edge of pie crust with strip of foil for the last 15 min. of the baking time to prevent it from browning too much.
Omit the oil. Substitute 1 lb. lean ground beef for the chicken.
