If you love chicken pot pie, this gluten free chicken pot pie is a delicious and satisfying meal. Don’t let the fact that there is curry in this comforting dish fool you. This is a completely kid-friendly, non-spicy pot pie recipe, just ask my picky one!!

This week is all about comfort food. Those foods make you feel good. This homemade gluten free chicken pot pie is taken to a whole new level when topped with my popular flaky Gluten Free Biscuits recipe!

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.

One dish I wanted to create was an easy gluten free pot pie recipe. With gluten-free baking, getting a flaky crust to top your pie can be hard. Although this recipe is pictured with drop biscuits, I will also include the directions to make this as a pie.

This curry gluten free chicken 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.

Grab some extra chicken when you are at the grocery store because I have a ton of delicious family (and kid) friendly gluten free chicken recipes for you to try!

Why this gluten free pot pie recipe is great:

This 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!

What you need to make this recipe:

Photos of the chicken pot pie ingredients.
  • Chicken breasts – I used chicken breasts. You can make this recipe with other cuts of chicken; it just may not shred as well.
  • Heavy cream – this recipe works best with heavy cream. I do not recommend half and half.
  • Onion – you can use either yellow onions or leeks in this recipe.
  • Mushrooms – I used shiitake, but plain white mushrooms or cremini also taste delicious in this recipe.
  • Chicken broth – Use low sodium if you can.
  • Biscuit mix – You can use any gluten free biscuit mix or try this easy Paleo Biscuit recipe.

Recipe step-by-step directions:

First, let’s make the creamy chicken and vegetable filling!

Step 1: 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.

Step 2: Sauté the vegetables separately before adding them to the chicken. (Again, feel free to use any vegetables on hand!)

Step 3: Boil the chicken breasts in a pot with the chicken broth for 15 minutes until cooked through. Remove the chicken breasts and place them on a cutting board.

Use two forks or a meat shredder to shred the chicken. Add the shredded chicken back to the broth.

Step 4: 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.

Step 5: Place the chicken mixture in a casserole dish.

To make a drop biscuit topping:

Use a gluten free biscuit mix or my grain-free Paleo Biscuit Recipe to make the biscuits, and then use a big cookie scooper to drop the dough onto the chicken mixture. Bake at 350º F for 30 minutes until the biscuits are done baking.

To make a pie crust for the filling:

The pie crust rolled flat.

Step 1: Mix my homemade gluten free pie crust ingredients to make dough for the gluten free pot pie crust. There is a great video that will walk you through every step.

You will need a top and bottom crust to make this gluten free chicken pie so make sure to double the recipe!

Step 2: Roll out the dough and put it into the pie tin. Press the dough in so it is shaped to the pan.

Step 3: Add the chicken mixture and spread so it is even.

Step 4: Roll out the top crust and place it over the top.

Adding the top crust on and ready to bake.

Step 5: Pinch the top and bottom crust together. Poke a few holes in the top crust with a fork to allow steam to vent.

Step 6: Bake at 350º F for 30-40 minutes, depending on how deep your pie dish is. The top of the crust will be flaky and golden when the pie is done baking. You may see some of the chicken sauce come up through the vent holes. This is normal.

  1. I would love to make chicken pot pie, but hate curry. Would it be best to just leave it out, or is there something I could use in place of it?

  2. 5 stars
    Can you make ahead? How would you do it? make filling and then bake with biscuit day of? We loved it by the way!

    1. Hi Danielle, you can definitely make the filling for this pot pie ahead of time, but the biscuit batter bakes in so best to mix that up when you get ready to bake it. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  3. I cannot get over how delicious this looks! Well done, Sandi! Pinned and making soon. 🙂
