Kristie’s keto chicken pot pie

Chicken pot pie is the coziest of comfort foods and not something you would expect to eat on a ketogenic diet. The biscuit topping for this recipe is also a shining star. It makes a delicious breakfast sandwich or a Southern style biscuit without the carbs.

Instructions

Instructions are for 12 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Sauté the vegetables (first 8 ingredients) in butter in a large cast iron skillet (or in an oven safe casserole dish) until the vegetables are tender.
  2. When the vegetables are just tender, add the chicken broth. Simmer until the bone broth is reduced (about 10 minutes).
  3. Add cream cheese and heavy cream and stir until the cream cheese is melted and creamy. Simmer until the sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining seasonings and mix well.
  4. Sprinkle in xanthan gum if desired. The sauce will be thicker if you do. Last, add the chicken and mix into the vegetables and sauce.
  5. While the chicken pot pie filling is simmering on low heat, prepare the biscuit recipe according to instructions below.
  6. Once the filling is ready, drop the biscuit dough on top of the pot pie filling, covering the filling. Bake the dish at 350°F (175°C) for about 25-30 minutes or until the biscuits are browned and not doughy underneath.

One batch of Bell's biscuits

  1. Use a hand mixer to beat the egg whites until frothy, but not stiff.
  2. Add in almond flour, oat fiber, mozzarella cheese, baking powder, xanthin gum and salt and mix well with the hand mixer.
  3. Add in butter and beat with the hand mixer until well blended. Use the batter to top the chicken pot pie filling.
  4. If you really want to make this decadent add one cup of cheddar cheese and 1/3 cup chopped bacon to the biscuit dough before dropping it onto the pot pie filling. Enjoy!

Keto quick tip!

Use half of the biscuit dough to top the chicken pot pie and the other half to make six southern-style biscuits for a quick breakfast sandwich.

    Why don’t you offer odd number of servings for the recipe conversion?Has this changed or is it just this recipe? I feed a family of 4 but 1 extra for my lunch. For all your recipes, I use 5 servings. It saves food and money while allowing me to visualize portion size for my family. I hope this isn’t an overall change with the new site and only recipe specific. Odd number servings is helpful! Thanks.

    Hi. I was wondering if this can be kept for a couple of days or even frozen? I do not have time to cook every day, and usually like to make meals that can be used as leftover the next day. Many thanks, I cannot wait to try this!

    Hello! I am loving the new developments to the site, esp the nutrition detail - fantastic and many thanks.

    I hate to moan, but in the spirit of constructive criticism here goes...in the UK we measure liquids in mls and solids in grams. Each time I use a recipe here I struggle with either the US spoon /cup measure or mls used for solids as in this recipe. I know I'm not the first UK low-carber to have said this.

    The ketodiet blog site puts everything in 3 measurements - spoons/cups, mls/ grams (depending on whether wet or dry ingredient) and ounces, and it is brilliant. As I said, I love this site, but to perfect it, any chance you can take a leaf out if ketodiet's book??

    I will continue to use recipes here as they are great...but it's hard work.....

    Kristi,
    I would guess that this would not be great as leftovers, mainly the biscuit part..soggy. I think it would work to bake individual biscuits. Then serve with the stew for subsequent meals. What are your thoughts?
