Chicken Pot Pie. Nothing says down home, comfort food like a pot pie. And you can have it too! Yep, that is right! Even with food allergies one can enjoy this one dish meal. Now it is a bit more work than buying a Marie Callender’s, but it is also way healthier! Plus I think it is fun to make a pot pie and see the delight on the family faces at dinner time. There is just something about a pot pie that makes people smile!
My recipe for this pot pie was given to me by a friend when I first learned of my milk and egg allergies. Now, a couple years later I have adapted it to also be soy and gluten free! You will need to use Bob’s Red Mill Biscuit and Baking Mix to make a gluten free top. If you do not need your pot pie to be gluten free just use any biscuit mix or tube biscuits that work for you.
I hope you enjoy it! Let me know by leaving a comment below, on Twitter, or the Facebook page. And speaking of Facebook, have you liked the Allergy Free Test Kitchen page yet? Remember too, that you have to click “add to interests list” to have the updates show up in your news feed.
