What is Chicken Pot Pie?

Chicken Pot Pie is a savory pie made of a flaky crust and a chicken-based, soup-like filling. It usually includes veggies like carrots, peas, corn, and onions and is traditionally considered a filling, satisfying dish. We use almond flour instead of traditional flour to make this recipe keto-diet friendly.

How Do I Store Chicken Pot Pie? 

This recipe can be stored in the fridge, covered for up to 3 days. You can freeze your leftovers as well. Place your completely cooled pot pie in an airtight container with plastic wrap pressed tightly around it. Freeze for up to 3 months.

You can reheat the leftover chicken pot pie in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or until it’s hot. Another option is to heat it in the oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Serve when it’s thoroughly heated.

Can I Freeze Chicken Pot Pie to Use Later?

Yes. To freeze your Pot Pie, follow all the steps until the final bake. Allow the pie to cool completely, and tightly wrap it with plastic and foil.

To cook from frozen, allow it to thaw almost completely. It’s best to pull it out of the freezer the night before and place it in the fridge. Then bake at 350 degrees for 20 until the crust is browned and the filling is thoroughly heated.

Pro Tip: We like to make these kinds of dishes in disposable tin pans. They easily slide into a Ziploc bag to go right in the freezer!

What Can I Serve With this Pot Pie?

This chicken pot pie is a stand-alone dish that doesn’t need any other sides. It combines protein, veggies, and crust to make it the perfect meal. But, If you want to make other foods to go with it, a fresh garden salad, a side of green beans, and some fresh berries for dessert would perfect!

Tips for Making Keto Chicken Pot Pie 

  • Since the crust does not contain gluten, you can expect it to be more fragile and less elastic. Cracks may occur but worry not. Just smooth them back together. 
  • If the dough is too wet, use additional almond flour. If the dough is too dry, add more butter.
  • I recommend partially baking the bottom crust before adding the filling to prevent the almond flour in the dough from absorbing all of the liquid. No one wants a soggy crust. 
  • If you’re allergic to almond flour, you can use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free flour. It’s a pretty fabulous blend that’s super delicious.

Chicken Pot Pie is another go-to recipe for my family! I know that you will love it too. But before you jump into making this recipe, there are a few things to remember:

  • Place the dough in the freezer to chill a bit until the vegetables are done cooking.
  • You can make the keto chicken pot pie ahead of time and store it in the fridge until you are ready to heat it and serve. 
  • To keep your pot pie from being too soupy, begin by using only half of the cooking liquid. You can always add in more.
