Why this recipe is so amazing
Many pot pie recipes require pre-cooked chicken, which adds extra work. You either have to grab some rotisserie chicken or you have to cook it before starting in on the casserole. But this keto chicken pot pie recipe simplifies the process considerably.
I love the simplicity of cooking the chicken right in the broth and cream. It takes only 10 minutes to cook through and then you’re ready to get baking. Plus it infuses the filling with more delicious chicken flavor.
The topping is adapted from my Keto Cheddar Drop Biscuits, and you simply dollop it over the filling in small spoonfuls. No fuss, no muss. It spreads a bit as it bakes and the top becomes deliciously crusty.
It’s so good, I don’t think I’d do it any other way! And with only xg net carbs per serving, it’s
“Hands down, the best dinner recipe of yours I have ever made. The fragrance while it cooked, primed our taste buds for the first bite. My husband even said this would be a favorite on any restaurant menu. I followed your recipe exactly. It will for sure be in my repeat menu folder.” — Sue H.
“I divided the recipe into small loaf pans to freeze. These were great, warm and tasty comfort food during the first recovery period following shoulder surgery.” — NLK
“I’ve grown to love and trust your recipes so much! If you make them, I know they’ll be delicious and not have that “brick in your stomach” feel that so many heavy keto meals have. There’s so much variety and the best thing of all is that I’m losing weight and feeling much better! Keep it up!” — Deanna P.
Ingredients you need
- Vegetables: I omitted the higher carb carrots and opted for some mushroom and red pepper to give the pie some flavor and color.
- Aromatics: Onion, celery, garlic, and sage add flavor and texture. Keeping the onion to a minimum helps reduce the carbs as well.
- Boneless skinless chicken thighs: You can also use boneless skinless chicken breast but I think thighs have more flavor.
- Heavy whipping cream: Chicken pot pie should always have a lovely, creamy sauce consistency.
- Glucomannan: This helps thicken the filling a little more. You can also use xanthan gum.
- Nut flours: For the biscuit topping, I use both almond flour and coconut flour. If you really don’t want to use coconut flour, try another ¾ cup of almond flour (so 1 ½ cups total). Please be aware that the carb count will change.
- Cheddar cheese: I recommend grating fresh cheddar. Feel free to use mild or sharp cheddar, as you like.
- Sour cream: This helps give the biscuit topping a lovely tender consistency. You can also use Greek yogurt.
- Kitchen staples: Chicken broth, eggs, butter, bay leaves, baking powder, salt and pepper
1. Sauté the vegetables: In a large dutch oven, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, red pepper, onion, and celery, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
2. Make the filling: Stir in the garlic and sage and cook until fragrant, about 1 more minute. Stir in the broth, whipping cream, bay leaves and bring to a simmer. Whisk in the glucomannan, if using. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste and then stir in the chicken. Continue to cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes. Remove the bay leaves.
3. Transfer to a baking dish: Using a slotted spoon, spoon the filling into a 2 quart glass or ceramic baking dish, leaving behind about half of the cooking liquid.
4. Prepare the topping: In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt. Stir in half the grated cheese. Add the eggs, sour cream, and butter and stir until well combined. Let sit a few minutes to thicken.
5. Bake the pot pie: Drop the topping in small spoonfuls over the filling and sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until filling is bubbling and crust is browned and firm to the touch. Let stand about 10 minutes before serving.
Chop the chicken into bite size pieces, no more than 1 inch across and preferably less. It cooks faster and it makes the pie easier to eat.
I urge you not to throw away any leftover liquid from the pot. It is flavorful and luscious, and makes a wonderful light soup.
If you choose not to use the glucomannan, the sauce will be much thinner. Please be aware of that.

I haven’t tried but I imagine it would do fine. Let it cool completely before wrapping it up tightly so that the crust doesn’t get soggy.
