Paleo AIP Chicken Pot Pie

All those health-foodies out there appear to be completely content with their paleo meals. I’ll go weeks at a time seeing amazing looking paleo food images plastered all over my Pinterest and Facebook feeds. While they look amazing and clean eating has changed my life (and the paleo autoimmune protocol was a big part of that), there still are many days when I felt nothing other than deprived.

Today is one of those days. If someone sat down right now in front of me with a huge Cinnabon, I’m not sure I’d have the willpower to turn it down. It is days like today that I need to make sure to fill up on something that reminds me of my gluten-consuming days. It’s days like today that I need comfort food. In honor of my past (before I got healthy) late night comfort food; $0.50 chicken pot pies, I am presenting you with a delicious Paleo AIP chicken pot pie! It’s perfect for the nights like these where you feel deprived. Complete with a savory crust and creamy filling, I wish you comfort, health, and one less night of deprivation this week! 😉

Enjoy! Here’s to regaining our sparkle together,

Ingredients
  1. (Filling)
  2. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 4 garlic cloves, minced
  4. 2 large onions, chopped
  5. 1 bag baby carrots
  6. 1 bag celery, diced
  7. 1 broccoli head, chopped well
  8. 1 cup chicken broth
  9. 1 - 14 oz can coconut milk
  10. 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  11. ¼ teaspoon dried rosemary
  12. 1 teaspoon sea salt
  13. 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  14. 2 cups chicken, cooked and diced
  15. (Crust)
  16. 1¼ cup cassava flour
  17. 1/3 cup tapioca starch
  18. 5 tablespoons palm shortening
  19. 2 tablespoons banana puree
  20. 1 teaspoon sea salt
  21. ¾ cup coconut milk
Instructions
  1. In a large soup pot, add olive oil and heat slightly. Add garlic, onion, carrots, celery, and broccoli and cook (stir often) over medium heat for 15 minutes.
  2. Add chicken broth, coconut milk, thyme, rosemary, and salt. Continue cooking (stir often) over medium heat until vegetables are no longer crisp, about 20 minutes.
  3. Reduce to a simmer. Stir in arrowroot 1 Tbsp at a time until fully dissolved. Continue to stir and simmer until thickened. Mix in chicken.
  4. Prepare crust. Add cassava flour, tapioca starch, palm shortening, banana puree, and salt to a large mixing bowl. Use a dough cutter to combine the banana and fat into the flour mixture. Add coconut milk. Stir to form a batter.
  5. Break dough into two parts and roll each thin. Line pan (9”x13” baking pan or many smaller pans) with part of the dough. Pour filling in. Top with remaining dough. **For an easier option, you can also pour filling in the pan and add a thicker top layer with all the dough.**
  6. Bake at 350°F for 30 mins or until the crust is slightly browned.
