Ingredients

Pie crust
  • ¾ cup 175 ml (100 g) almond flour
  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp (35 g) sesame seeds
  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp (30 g) coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp (8 g) ground psyllium husk powder
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp (5 g) baking powder
  • 1 pinch 1 pinch salt
  • 3 tbsp 3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1 1 eggeggs
  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp water
Filling
  • 23 lb 300 g cooked chicken
  • 1 cup 225 ml mayonnaise
  • 3 3 eggeggs
  • ½ ½ green bell pepper, finely choppedgreen bell peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp paprika powder
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp onion powder
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 oz. 110 g cream cheese
  • 5 oz. 150 g (325 ml) shredded cheese

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Put all the ingredients for the pie crust into a food processor for a few minutes until the dough firms up into a ball. If you don’t have a food processor, you can also mix the dough with a fork.
  2. Attach a piece of parchment paper to a springform pan, no larger than 10 inches (23 cm) in diameter (the springform pan makes it easier to remove the pie when it’s done). Grease the bottom and sides of the pan.
  3. Spread the dough into the pan. Use an oiled spatula or your fingers. Pre-bake the crust for 10–15 minutes.
  4. Mix all other filling ingredients together, and fill the pie crust. Bake for 35–40 minutes or until the pie has turned a nice, golden brown.
  5. Let cool and serve with salad and a dressing.

Tip!

Bring it along! A savory pie is as versatile as it is delicious. It really satisfies as a convenient work lunch. Or bring it along for a hearty family picnic. Savory pies also freeze incredibly well, so – if you’re lucky enough to have any – don’t let those leftover slices go to waste.

    Hi there. Why are the metric measurements in deciliters? It's very confusing. Could they be converted to grams or mL?
    Thank you for sharing this recipe. It looks delicious.

    It's an exercise in culinary art and maths at the same time :) Apart from unit conversion (1dl = 100ml), you can tell if you know your fractions well enough. So 2 2/5 dl = 2.40 dl = 240ml. I think!

    It's the liquid measurements being used for dry ingredients that confuses me! Here in the UK we use grams for dry and ml for liquid. Anyone have any idea how to convert dl or ml to grams please? Otherwise the recipes are fab and make low carb/high fat eating much easier.

    Yes I agree, please put the metric units into ml & g as appropriate. Thanks

    This one is delicious. But.. (*yes I know this is keto, we're not supposed to count) .. but one serve of this is 1200calories if I've entered the recipe in right to Calorieking.com.au!

    That was an entire day of calories in my older school of dieting! I wonder if it should be 6 or 8 serves for the above recipe to make rather than 4. WIsh I'd worked it out before I had leftovers for breakfast and had protein bar for lunch lol blew my budget way out of the water

    Cheers

    Hi Kathy I found this confusing too when I started but because these recipes are so popular I purchased some spoons and cup measures from house of Fraser and use them all the time

    Why is Cream Cheese measured as a liquid.... it'd be far easier if everything was by weight then metric or standard you just put your mixing bowl on the scale and press the tare button. It'd make changing the number of servings easier too. I love the recipes once I figure out the odd measurements.

    I noticed that the same size beef pie is said to serve 6 but 8 slices works better. I'm thinking this will make 8 slices as well.

    I made just the filing for this and it was delicious as well as very budget friendly at 80p per quarter

    Cream cheese: 120g

    Hi, everyone! Is there a substitute for the coconut flour in the pie crust? I am allergic to all coconut products. Thanks!
  11. Bluenoser
    This could also be good simply as a frittata, save the work , calories and carbs of the crust and maybe enjoy a couple of seed crackers with it or some vegetables like steamed asparagus or broccoli.
  12. Bluenoser
    Maybe use sesame flour or pumkin or sunflower seed flour instead of the coconut or as suggested just skip the crust and go frittata style.

    One of my go to keto recipes. I only use 1 cup of cheese instead of 1 1/4, and for cooked chicken I use thigh meat pan fried in butter.

    For those worried about calories, you really need to stop counting and go with your gut. If you are eating sufficient amounts of fat , your body will feel more full, naturally limiting you calorie intake without the need to count. I cut this into sixths, and depending on how much energy I've been burning, 2 portions maximum is usually all I would eat in a whole day.

    I am completely addicted to they recipe. It is DELICIOUS. A portion of this and some salad and I am in heaven. I have been known to eat this for breakfast I love it so much.

    How is the parchment paper supposed to be attached to the springform pan? Lay it inside and grease the parchment paper, or wrap around the sides?

    Yes, you can lay it inside the pan and then grease it and the sides to make for easier removal of the sides after it is baked.

    love this recipe, works well with mushrooms too either with or without chicken.
    TIP: If you are thinking of making your own mayo to use, save yourself the trouble, just use a hand blender to wizz up the eggs, cream cheese and spices then add about 200ml of oil and wizz up again makes no difference to the taste or texture and there is no need to add any extra egg.

    I wish there was a film version of this recipe. It is confusing as how to fill the crust when you have already cooked it. The instructions seems to have left out a step. Can someone help with this?
  19. Jayne
    Maya you have to bake the crust on its own and then fill it with the ingredients for the filling and bake it again :) I hope this helps you!

    I've this pie in the oven now. I am off for a day of sailing tomorrow and thought I would bring it along for lunch - serving the men along for the ride as I suspect they are not cooks and might appreciated something home cooked -- even if it is keto and gluten free (I won't tell!). This is my first time making it and yes, I also had a few minutes to think and convert to come up with acceptable measurements. Judging by the ingredients, I suspect this pie will be a hit and served cold on a sailboat is the way to go.

    My question remains... if we make mayonnaise with avocado or light olive oil, and then cook it in the pie, are we turning it into a ‘bad’ oil? Are we better to replace the mayonnaise with cream?

    I can't get hold of husk powder is there anything else you can use instead as really wanted to try this tonight

    We have some information about possible substitutions in our psyllium guide but we have not tested any of them specifically in this recipe.

    This is even more delicious the next day, just like curry! I used shredded cheddar because I already had some, and the cheddar is ok, but could you suggest a cheese that might be better in this particular recipe?
  25. Kerry
    I’ve just made this, and checked the macro’s!!
    Through the roof on this dish!!
    I’m finding it hard to not panic about eating it !!
    Going for it anyway.
    Glad all didn’t eat much this morning !!
  26. Kerry
    It was delicious !! :)
    I used some of the pastry for a quiche, and added a little Erythratol for a sweet Jam tart ❤️
