IMG_9944

Gluten and Dairy free Chicken Pot Pie

Filling:

1/2 lb cooked chicken breast cut into pieces (I just used the chicken already cooked into the cream of chicken soup recipe as described below)

1 can equivalent cream of chicken soup (see directions below for dairy free option)

4-5 C of organic fresh or frozen mixed veggie’s (we include carrots, green beans, corn, pees)

Directions:

Press down 1/2 of crust recipe into the bottom and sides of glass pie plate.

Add filling. Place 4-5 pats of butter or dairy substitute butter on top of filling.

Place top layer of crust and pink the sides (mine is crumbly so work with it as best you can… just make a top layer for pot pie affect. Remember it doesn’t have to look real pretty to taste great. And in my opinion, from scratch and homemade looks pretty no matter what. Half the deliciousness is in the victory of knowing you made a meal from scratch, right? See pics below, you’ll see what I mean.)

Place foil around the edges for the first half of baking (20minutes), then remove to brown top for additional 15-20 minutes.

Bake 425 Degrees for 35-40 minutes.

Pie Crust:

2 C gluten free all purpose flower ( I uses Namaste from Costco)

3/4 C Coconut oil solid- not melted

4 T Dairy free butter (I use Earth Balance)

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp sugar (or honey to sweeten)

1 egg

1/4 C water

1 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

Directions:

Combine flour, oil, butter sugar ad salt with pastry cutter. Add egg water and vinegar. Mix. *Pat by hand into pie plate. Gluten free does not roll out real well!

Dairy free Gluten free Cream of Chicken Soup: 

*Makes 4 Cups. So you will have left overs if only using for 1 pot pie. I used the remaining to make creamy chicken enchiladas.

1-2 C cooked chicken

4T Earth Balance butter

1 1/2 Tsp onion pwd

1 tsp salt

pepper to taste

4-5 T gluten free flour

1 1/2 C chicken broth

1 1/2 C hemp milk

Directions:

Melt butter, add onion pwd, salt and pepper. Stir in flour and cook for a minute or two. Add chicken broth and bring to simmer. Add hemp milk and simmer until it thickens. About 10-12 minutes.
