Giraffe’s Hearty Low-Carb Chicken Pot Pie
We miss those early years, where yummy, delicious, meaty, and satisfying pot pies were a staple in our lives. Of course, back in the day, the pounds didn’t stick to us, as they do now.
Well, our wonderful Carbquik allows us to enjoy those hearty pot pies again! Our result reminded us of those days in the past. Ahhhh….the rich meaty flavor with the fresh vegetable taste and of course, the flaky crust….were amazingly delicious!
Our ingredients are:
- 2 Whole Chickens (deboned)
- 2 1/2 Cups Chicken Stock
- 2 Large Cans of Mushrooms
- 2 Onions
- 2 Green Peppers
- 2 tsp. Minced Garlic
- 1 + 1/2 Cup Carbquik
- 1 tsp. Pepper
- 1 Stick of Margarine
- 1 Egg
- 1 Small Bag of Frozen Peas
- 1/2 Cup of Shredded Cheese
- 1/2 Cup of Parmesan Cheese
- 1/4 Cup of Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1/4 Cup of Water
We’ll begin by shredding our 2 chickens and placing aside.
We’ll then slice our onions and green peppers, and will also place aside.
Well, then, spray our pot with cooking spray and will place on medium heat.
Next, we’ll place our onions, green pepper, mushrooms, pepper, and garlic into our pot, will stir, cover, and will cook until our vegetables have slightly softened.
We’ll then add our chicken and peas to our vegetable mixture, will stir, and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.
Next, we’ll remove our vegetable mixture from the stove, uncover, and will place aside.
Now, it’s time to make our sauce for our pot pie creation.
We’ll first, melt our margarine in a pot on medium heat.
Once our butter has melted, we’ll add 1 cup of Carbquik and will still until mixture is blended.
The mixture will thicken and should be constantly stirred for 5 minutes, otherwise, the “batter” will burn.
After our sauce has cooked, we’ll add our Chicken Broth, will bring our heat down to a simmer and will continue to stir until our mixture has thickened.
Once our sauce has somewhat thickened, we’ll then, pour into our chicken and vegetable mixture and will stir.
Next, we’ll take our large baking dish, will spray with cooking spray, and will preheat our oven to 400F degrees.
Now, we’ll make our last part – our flaky and tasty “crust.”
We’ll beat our egg in our mixing bowl, will add our water, heavy whipping cream, 1/2 cup of Carbquik, Parmesan Cheese, Shredded Cheese, and will stir until well blended.
Next, we’ll pour our chicken and vegetable mixture into our greased baking pan, will evenly spread our batter over the top, will place in the oven, and will bake for 30 minutes, or until our top is golden brown.
he aroma from our Chicken Pot Pie is permeating our apartment and is absolutely fabulous!!
A bite of our juicy and succulent chicken mixture, along with our flaky biscuit is out of this world!!
The biscuit is just the right amount to go with the rich, thick, and hearty insides of our pot pie.
We feel as if we are dining at Grandma’s House.
From our kitchen to yours ~ a succulent, rich and hearty comfort food, without the carbs.
