This week is all about comfort food. Those foods that make you feel good.
Foods that bring your whole family together, like this delicious Gluten Free Fried Chicken or this Slow Cooker Pot Roast. Our family is busy during the school week. My kids come home from school and shut themselves in their rooms to do hours of homework. I don't remember it being like this when I was a kid. Getting everyone together mid-week for a family dinner is tough!
Healthy foods like this easy gluten free chicken pot pie that you can feel good about serving your family.

One dish I have wanted to create was an easy gluten free pot pie recipe. With gluten free baking, it can be so hard to get a flaky crust to top your pie. Even though I finally created the perfect flaky pie crust recipe, I decided to try a drop biscuit style chicken pot pie. For a twist on flavor, I used a mild curry powder for flavoring.
Not only is it easier to get a flaky topping with biscuits, but nobody will steal all of the crust!! (Ahem, Mr. Fearless Dining!)
This curry gluten free chicken pot pie is not spicy. My kids don't go for spicy so it was important for this dish to have flavor, but to keep it mild enough that they would like it as well.
This dish is really simple, because who has a lot of time to make a big elaborate dinner during the busy school week?
If your family loves comfort food like my family, try this easy Mexican Lasagna recipe (it is ready in just 30 minutes!!)
When Foster Farms asked me to try their organic chicken breasts, I sort of laughed.
I am already a huge customer of theirs. I already use their organic chicken at least twice a week, so it was really easy to say yes.
There is so much to feel good about with Foster Farm's Organic chicken.

This easy gluten free chicken pot pie recipe is so easy to make for your family. the sauce is creamy, and you can even vary the vegetables you use in this easy gluten free dinner to use what you already have in your refrigerator. I hate food waste!
The sky is the limit on what vegetables will work in this gluten free chicken pot pie recipe. Open your refrigerator...what needs to be used?
- Sweet potatoes
- Zucchini or winter squash
Grab a frying pan and heat a little oil over medium heat. Sauté the shiitake, leeks, and carrots in the frying pan.
Stir vegetables in the pan as they cook.
Sauté the vegetables separately before adding this to the chicken. (Again, feel free to use any vegetables you have on hand!)
How to shred chicken:
Boil the chicken breasts in a pot with the chicken broth for 15 minutes until cooked through. Remove the chicken breasts and place on a cutting board. Use two forks or a meat shredder to shred the chicken. Add the shredded chicken back to the broth.
Add cream, butter, vegetables, and gluten free flour blend to the pot of chicken and broth and simmer on low. Stir and add the curry powder and turmeric for flavor. Simmer for 10 minutes.
Place the chicken mixture in a casserole dish.
Use a gluten free biscuit mix or this Paleo Biscuit Recipe to make the biscuits and then used a big cookie scooper to drop the dough onto the chicken mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until the biscuits are done baking.
Can this recipe be made dairy-free?
You can definitely make this recipe dairy-free by substituting canned coconut milk for the heavy cream and olive oil for the butter. Canned coconut milk goes very well with curry powder and makes the pot pie sauce thick and creamy.
Can this recipe be made paleo?
If you follow a paleo diet, you can easily make this dish paleo by using the above mentioned canned coconut milk and olive oil. You will also want to use the paleo biscuit recipe.
Can I make this recipe with a pie crust on top?
You can definitely make this chicken pot pie recipe with a pie crust instead of drop biscuits. Use my gluten free flaky pie crust recipe.
