Chicken Pot Pie Ingredients

Crust – Almond flour and coconut flour produce a light and tender pastry that can be used in other low-carb recipes that are sweet or savory!

Chicken – Leftover or rotisserie chicken works in this recipe, but so will leftover beef, pork, turkey, or ham.

Vegetables – Toss in a bag of keto-friendly frozen vegetables if you don’t have time to prep fresh. Radishes are a great switch for turnips and taste just like potatoes!

Sauce – The sauce is all about the cream and chicken broth that brings a rich and savory flavor to chicken pot pie. Short on time? Use a jar of Alfredo sauce or make your own (since store bought sauces often have too much sugar). A can of cream of celery soup is also a good choice, or make a batch of this homemade cream of chicken soup or cream of mushroom soup.

Variations – For larger appetites and families, double the recipe and spread it into a casserole dish. Then top with the pie crust (fewer calories)!

How to Make Chicken Pot Pie

  1. Prepare crust per recipe directions below and refrigerate at least two hours.
  2. Simmer diced turnip in water until tender.
  3. Saute veggies in butter until tender.
  4. Whisk xanthan gum with some broth. Add heavy cream.
  5. Stir in turnips, chicken, and parsley. Season.
  6. Line the bottom of a pie plate with a 12” circle of dough.
  7. Add filling and top with another circle of dough. Crimp edges to seal, but cut slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
  8. Bake until the pastry top is golden. Rest before serving.

Chicken Pot Pie Sides

Meat and veggies are baked in one dish so all that’s needed is a tangy salad! A spring mix, cucumber and onion salad, or a cherry tomato salad offer a tangy complement to a rich and creamy pot pie.
