Chicken pot pie is one of my favorite gluten-free recipes for dinner. And this is the best chicken pot pie recipe. Why? Well, it’s delicious obviously, but also very nutritious with the incorporations of vegetables, meat, and cicken broth. Especially when you use homemade chicken broth.
I’m so happy to have a good gluten-free pie crust recipe to use for these. Chicken pot pie is one of my favorite comfort foods. It does take a little bit of time to prepare, but it’s well worth it! It’s also a great freezer dish, which means you can knock out several pies in one stretch, and then pull one out of the freezer for an awesome meal when you don’t have time to cook from scratch.
This recipe pairs very well as a main dish, with a green salad, and pan fried sweet potatoes as sides. Talk about a warm, hearty, country meal – and a nutritional power house!
