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!

    Garlic? 4 cloves of garlic minced is not mentioned in the directions. I assume it went in with the onion. ?

    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.

      You can, just let the cream and broth simmer for a bit to thicken.
