Gluten-free Chicken Pot Pie

The other week I was craving soup, and didn’t want to subject Bill to more chicken soup, so I decided to throw together a gluten-free chicken pot pie.



I made these personal sized, so that we each had our own. They were really cute, and fun to make, however they were very time consuming!



I did use gluten-free flour for this recipe, because as I’ve mentioned, Bill and I both do much better with a rice flour blend, than using nut flours, and coconut flour doesn’t work well in many recipes.



This recipe was delicious, and very comforting. It was a good change of pace from the other soft foods we’ve been eating lately because of my braces.


We used our Garlic & Herb blend to season the filling, which was the perfect flavor profile!


It also is wonderful without the pie crust as well, and that definitely reduces the complexity of making this recipe as well! If you don’t want to make the crust, you could easily enjoy the filling with some Simple Mills grain-free crackers, or some Legit Bread!

  1. Add the chicken thighs and chicken broth to a soup pot, and heat over medium heat.
  2. Add the carrot, celery, and onion to the pot, and stir to combine.
  3. Bring the chicken and vegetables to a boil, then turn down the heat to medium-low heat. Add the mushrooms, and stir to combine.
  4. Cook until the chicken can be shredded with a fork.
  5. While the chicken and vegetables are cooking, prepare the crust.
  6. Cube the cold butter, and add the flour and butter to a food processor. Pulse until the butter is crumbly.
  7. Add the palm shortening, salt, baking powder, and pulse again to combine.
  8. Add the cold water to the food processor, and pulse again until a dough has formed.
  9. Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl, and add additional cold water, 1 tablepsoon at a time, until the dough is able to be rolled without crumbling.
  10. Roll the dough into two balls, and wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until use.
  11. Remove the chicken from the pot, and shred with a fork.
  12. Place the shredded chicken back into the soup pot, and season with the Garlic and Herb blend.
  13. Add the heavy cream, and two tablespoons of gluten free flour.
  14. Once the filling has thickened, add the frozen peas, and stir to combine. Allow to cook on medium low heat for 10 more minutes.
  15. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  16. Pour the filling into personal size souffle dishes. We used ones that were about 4-5 inches in diameter.
  17. Roll the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. Carefully place the dough over the top of the souffle dish (one at a time), and allow the excess to fall from the top.
  18. Slit the top of the crust in the center with a knife, to allow steam to come through.
  19. Brush with an egg wash, and bake for about 20-30 minutes, or until the crust is slightly golden.

      Looks great, but what is “Gluten Free Flour (Better Batter)”? The link offers no info.
