Fall is right around the corner and I don’t know about you but I crave comfort foods when the temperatures drop and the leaves change color. Typically, comfort food isn’t too healthy though. Not so with these Mini Keto Chicken Pot Pies! These low-carb pies are just as healthy as they are comforting.

We start out by making the filling which is pretty traditional minus the flour typically used to thicken the sauce. I find that the heavy cream gets nice and thick without any sort of thickener as long as you let it simmer for a few minutes. I’ve used frozen vegetables in this recipes since they’re easy and convenient, just make sure you rinse them under some warm water before adding them to the pan so you don’t water the mixture down.

You can also opt to use a rotisserie chicken to make this come together super fast. It would also add a bit more flavor than simple poached chicken.

The crust is super simple, like any keto dough it’s a bit difficult to roll out but as long as you roll it out between two pieces of parchment and use the parchment to flip it onto the top of the pies you’ll be golden!

Looks fantastic! Is there a way to use almond flour instead of coconut flour? What would be the ratio? Thanks for all of your work!!

Hi Mirjana, you could use these recipes as an alternative crust:
Savory Keto Pie Crust
Sweet Keto Pie Crust (just skip the sweetener)
I hope this helps!

For the serving size on this recipe, is 1/2 pie when you make large pies (4 pies) or for when you make small pies (8 pies)?

Reply

It is either 1 small pie (if 8 servings), or half medium pie (if 4 servings).
