Keto Chicken Pot Pies

Keto Chicken Pot Pies

Pot pies—like sloppy
joes
—are a comfort food classic that feeds our nostalgia as
well as appetite. Meat and veggies in a creamy sauce that’s
topped with a crunchy topping…what’s not to love? It might
seem, however, that pot pie isn’t compatible with a Primal, let
alone keto, plan. Au contraire. We’ve serving up a recipe today
that turns that assumption on its head. Pot pie is no longer pie in
the sky for the keto eater. Enjoy!

Time In the Kitchen: 40 minutes

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

For the Filling

  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 1 white or yellow onion, chopped
  • 7 ounces/200 grams pre-cooked chicken (meat from approximately
    3-4 chicken thighs)
  • 1 carrot cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup chopped turnip
  • 2-3 cups chicken stock or bone broth
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot flour

Instructions:

In a large pan with lid, saute the bacon and onion over medium
heat.

Add in the carrots and mushrooms. Cook through.

Add in chicken and cover the mixture with chicken stock.

In a separate pot, stir arrowroot with a drizzle of cold
water.

Add the flour mixture to the chicken, carrots and mushroom. Add
frozen peas and thyme. Lower heat and cook until the sauce
thickens.

Remove from heat and distribute evenly in oven-safe bowls or
ramekins.

For the Crust

  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp ghee

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 ºF/175 °C.

Mix all dry ingredients together.

Mix the egg and the ghee in a separate bowl.

Combine the dry and the wet ingredients together. The dough
should be moist like the dough for drop biscuits.

Spread the dough evenly on the ramekins filled with the chicken
and vegetable filling.

Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the crust is golden.
Put under broiler for a very short time to brown the crust at the
end if desired.
