Paleo Chicken Pot Pie

Paleo Chicken Pot Pie

This paleo chicken pot pie can be made with leftover rotisserie chicken, Thanksgiving turkey, or fresh chicken. If you are using fresh chicken just make sure to cook it beforehand.  You can grill it, bake it, pan fry it or any other cooking method you can think of. I happened to make it with leftover Thanksgiving turkey.

Thanksgiving dinner was a total success. This year most of my relatives have gone Paleo and the rest seem to be “Paleo-curious”, so except for the cheese over sliced apples appetizer that I am addicted to, our dinner was 100% Paleo. We had the turkey with the sweet potato stuffing I posted last week, cranberry sauce, asparagus casserole, persimmon pudding, pumpkin spice cookies, pumpkin cranberry bread, cheese and apples and I even made a cashew “cheese” spread.

I have so many things to be thankful for this year. Besides the usual stuff: family, health, food, shelter, friends; this year I am also thankful for my new nephew, the birth of my two youngest babies ( 10 month Lucia and 7 month Edible Harmony), and the over  13,500 new friends that I have found through my new blogging journey.

  1. Roasted a chicken yesterday and was wondering what tasty things I could do with the leftovers (now that I can no longer make my puff pastry encased chicken and leek pasties). I don’t always have a great deal of luck with paleo pastry but yours looks really good. I’m going to follow your recipe to the letter, thanks!

  2. This is by far the best paleo crust recipe I’ve found.
    I subed the almond flour in the crust to tapioca flour : I did 3/4 cup + 1/2 of a quarter cup tapioca and did the remaining 1/2 with coconut flour.
    It did work, but I had to up the coconut oil to an additonal 1/3 cup oil and 2 tbs full fat coconut milk.

    It was delicious. I’ll definitely be writing it down to use with my other recipes.
