Ingredients

3 each  medium potatoes
1 cup  cooked chicken breast, diced
1 cup  fresh broccoli florets
0 1/2 cup  fresh chopped onion
0 1/2 cup  sliced carrots
0 3/4 cup  cold water
0 3/4 cup  fat free milk
1 tbsp  white all purpose flour
0 1/4 tsp  black pepper
2 oz  Cheese, colby, reduced fat
Directions
  1. Scrub potatoes. Remove any bad spots. Do not peel. Cut each in half.
  2. In a covered saucepan, boil potatoes in just enough water to cover the pieces. When they are fork-tender (about 15 to 20 minutes), remove from heat and drain. Set aside. (Note: you can also pierce whole potatoes with a knife or fork in several places and cook in microwave without water until fork tender, then cut each in half).
  3. In a skillet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, combine cooked meat, broccoli, onion, carrots and water.
  4. Boil until vegetables are fork tender - about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low.
  5. In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine milk, flour, and pepper. Shake well.
  6. Stir flour mixture into meat mixture until well blended.
  7. Stir in cheese. Cook over low heat about 5 minutes longer or until sauce thickens, stirring frequently.
  8. To serve, place 2 potato halves on each plate and mash the middle somewhat.
  9. Spoon about 1/3 cup of the meat mixture over each potato half.
  10. Cover and refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.
