Recipe: GF Chicken Pot Pie

Dear Reader,

[This is my entry for Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays. See all the recipes here.]

We start our migraine diet today. So far, so good . . . though we have only had breakfast.

I am getting a little more creative in my cooking. I made this gluten-free chicken pot-pie last week. It is what I would call a mock pot pie in that it has a biscuity layer on top rather than two pie crusts. The top layer seemed to absorb a lot of liquid from the chicken layer but the whole thing got eaten up in a meal so I guess it wasn’t too bad.

GF Chicken Pot Pie



2 tbsp butter

1/4 c chopped onion

1/4 c chopped green pepper

1 c frozen veggies (I used peas; you could also do mixed veggies)

1 tsp salt

2 c cooked chicken (can you say leftovers?)

1 1/2 c milk

1 tbsp cornstarch

1 tsp thyme


2 1/4 c gf flour mix*

1 tbsp baking powder

2 tsp sugar

1/2 tsp cream of tartar

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 c butter, melted

1 c milk


1. Melt 2 tbsp butter for filling in a pan. Add onion and green pepper and saute until onion is clear (just a few minutes).

2. Add frozen veggies, cooked chicken, salt and 1 cup of milk. Heat until veggies are thawed and chicken is warm.

3. Mix cornstarch with remaining 1/2 c milk. Add to chicken and heat until boiling, stirring regularly. Reduce heat and continue to stir for 3 minutes or so until mixture thickens. Add thyme.

4. Pour chicken mixture in casserole dish. Preheat oven to 400.

5. Mix gf flour mix, powder, salt, sugar, and cream of tartar. Stir in melted butter and milk.

6. Taking big spoonfuls, place biscuit topping over chicken mixture.

7. Bake for 30 minutes until chicken is bubbly and topping just begins to brown (mine didn’t get very brown; I think that is the gf flour).

*GF flour: there are lots of recipes out there. I use 2 c white rice flour, 2/3 c potato starch, and 1/3 c tapioca starch.

  1. This looks really good! I’ve only ever tried making chicken pot pie from Elana Amsterdam’s Almond Flour cookbook and my husband always asks me to make it. Maybe I’ll try this next time!


  2. […] Healthy Mama friendly (see this summary of what THM is). This is an adaptation of the chicken pot pie recipe I had been using for a while, now slightly changed to make it an E meal. This is actually half a […]
