Growing up, I was never a fan of chicken pot pie. I think it was the vegetables that threw me off...no surprise that a kid didn't like vegetables, hah! Now, you can give me this Keto Chicken Pot Pie everyday for the rest of my life and I will be in heaven. So good!
HOW TO MAKE KETO CHICKEN POT PIE
I used a 5 quart skillet for this recipe so I could cook the meat and vegetable mixture in the same pan that I bake it in. If you do not have a skillet this big, you can cook the filling, then transfer it to a casserole dish.
To get started we need to soften our vegetables in the pan with a mix of avocado oil and butter. The vegetables I am using are carrots, celery, and onion.
When those are soft, we can add in our garlic, chicken, and season with salt and pepper.
I used diced chicken breast for this recipe, but boneless skinless chicken thighs would work here too.
When the chicken is finished cooking, add in the heavy cream, chicken broth, and xanthan gum.
While that is simmering, I got my biscuit dough ready. I combined almond flour, garlic powder, salt, baking powder, eggs, shredded cheese, and melted butter in a large bowl.
Now we just need to scoop 9-10 biscuits out on top of the chicken and vegetable mixture. I like to use a large cookie scoop. After they are all scooped out, I flatten out the tops with a spoon.
Bake this keto chicken pot pie in a 400F oven for 20 minutes. That is all there is to this easy keto dinner!

I have made this several times but tonight Im using turkey breasts. The original is top notch and the best I have ever tried so Im certain this will be no fail as well. Thank you!
Such a lovely update of a favorite wintertime meal! Based on my childhood memories of homemade pot pie, I added dill to both the filling and the biscuits and lightly sprinkled the tops of each biscuit with paprika for a spot of color. Delicious! Thanks!
Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe! My family of 5 devoured it. Next time I’m doubling the filling! This recipe is perfect comfort food.
I made this pot pie for dinner tonight. It was very good. Loved the cheddar biscuits. I think next time, I might add some poultry seasoning when cooking the chicken for just a little more flavor. I'm a big fan of your recipes!
I’m making this weekend. Would I freeze baked or unbaked??
Reviews are great. I’m excited to make
I would freeze after baking

EASY AND DELICIOUS, I ADDED POULTRY SEASONING.
This recipe is flippin fabulous. The cheesy biscuit crust....oh em gee! My hubs wants me to make the biscuits for dinner tonight. We had the potpie last night. ??
This was so good! I tried first time i was doin low carb 2 years ago these “mini pot pies” and they weren’t that great nor satisfying. This however was so good even my hubby and picky teenager raved about it. Thank you for this I’ll be making this more often!
Very good! Added a few extra spices, sage, poultry seasoning etc but really filled my need for comfort food!

Excellent recipe but it needs some seasonings. Next time I make it I will cut down the Cream and increase the chicken broth. I will also add some poultry seasoning or chicken seasoning. It was a little bland.
are the 6 carbs listed in the nutrition facts total or net? I count my net carbs, so I'm just trying to be accurate! thanks for the delicious recipe!

I don't normally leave reviews on recipes, but this time I'm making an exception - this was SOOO good! Even my husband, who definitely doesn't need to lose weight, loved it! And it looked exactly like your picture - I even took a picture of it. 🙂
Do you have a nondairy suggestion for replacing the cheese in the biscuits so that they still hold together nicely? Already have a dairy replacement for the sauce. Thanks in advance!
Maybe a vegan cheese?
What is your dairy replacement.? Coconut milk?
Claudia Flint says
Garlic? 4 cloves of garlic minced is not mentioned in the directions. I assume it went in with the onion. ?
Sorry about that!
Annette Webb says
This was really good but I somehow cooked all the broth out when cooked in oven. I did leave it longer than 20 minutes as my biscuits were big and wanted them to get cooked. So next time I will not cook so long. Thank you for the wonderful recipes.

This was delicious! My two toddlers ate it up and asked for more. I will say that I had to cook for an extra half hour in the oven and crank the heat up to 450 to get the biscuits on top to finish cooking.
This was so good, my husband wanted me to fix it the day after we ate the leftovers. 4 times in one week...lol
I think I could eat it everyday, too!
Thank you Jennifer! Started keto a few weeks ago and thought it is time to make some yummy dinners. It was outstanding and super easy! Hubby said YES, make it again!
So glad you guys liked the recipe! It is one of my favorites!
This has everything you want in a meal!
Amanda Finks says
The cheddar biscuits are the perfect combination with the creamy pot pie filling. So good!
Jennifer can I omit the xantham gum? what do you think will be the result? Travelling away from home and none to be found in this small town...
You can, just let the cream and broth simmer for a bit to thicken.
Kellie Snell says
This was very yummy!! I used coconut flour to thicken because that's what I had on hand and it turned out wonderful!!
