Another classic comfort food that has become Dr. Brown approved. Paleo pot pie with all of the tasty fillings like chicken, carrots, peas and onion. As well as some new ones like almond flour, hazelnut flour and tapioca flour. And it still tastes great!
  • For the crust:
  • 1 c Blanched Almond Flour
  • ½ c Hazelnut Meal
  • ½ c Tapioca Flour
  • 1 t Salt
  • ½ t Gluten-Free Baking Powder
  • ⅔ c Organic Grass Fed Butter
  • 6 T Cold Water
  • --------------------
  • For the filling:
  • 1 lb. Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into small cubes
  • 2 Carrots, Chopped
  • 1 c Peas
  • ⅓ c Butter
  • ½ c Chopped Onion
  • ¼ c Tapioca Flour
  • ½ t Salt
  • ¼ t Black Pepper
  • Pinch Paprika
  • 1¾ c Chicken Broth
  1. For the crust:
  2. Using a fork, stir together the almond flour, tapioca flour, salt and baking powder.
  3. Cut in the palm shortening until the mixture resembles course sand.
  4. Stir in the cold water.
  5. Place in refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
  6. -------------------
  7. For the filling:
  8. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  9. In a saucepan, combine the chicken, carrots and peas
  10. Cover with water and boil until chicken is done, about 10-15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  11. In another saucepan over medium heat, cook onions in butter until tender.
  12. Stir in tapioca flour, salt, pepper and paprika.
  13. Slowly stir in chicken broth
  14. Simmer over medium-low heat until thickened like gravy. Remove from heat and set aside.
  15. Check on your crust--if it's chilled completely, it's ready. If it's still a bit sticky and not cold, wait another 15-20 minutes. Note: The crust dough MUST be cold in order for it not to stick!
  16. Divide the dough in half and place ½ in a 9-inch pie plate, and put the other ½ back in the fridge.
  17. Place a piece of parchment paper on top and press down with another pie tin or plate until flat. Use your fingers to spread the dough crust to the sides if necessary.
  18. Stir together the chicken mixture and butter mixture, then pour into crust.
  19. Take the other ½ of your crust out of the fridge and place between 2 pieces of parchment paper. Use a rolling pin to roll into a circle, then lay on top of your pie.
  20. Note: You may need to use some more almond flour or tapioca flour for the top crust. You need to work quickly to get the top crust on. It may not be perfect looking, but it tastes amazing!
  21. Place on baking sheet (it may bubble over), and bake in oven for 30-35 minutes, until crust is golden brown.
  22. Cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
