Chicken pot pie was one of those dishes I didn’t love as a kid (store-bought version) and then loved as an adult (homemade version) and had to say goodbye to when we switched to a grain-free, real food diet. Flour and vegetable shortening crust…not so much!
I just recently attempted a healthy version of chicken pot pie and the kids loved it! It sneaks in some veggies that aren’t typically kid-favorites and some healthy fats. It’s also pretty filling and great for active kids.
To me, chicken pot pie is a poultry version of one of my favorite recipes: Shepherd’s pie, which I’ve also adapted as a sweet potato shepherd’s pie and meatloaf cupcakes. Those recipes are all more budget friendly, so if you aren’t a chicken person or are on a tight budget, try them instead!
