Most Popular Dinner Request…

The most popular dinner in my house is pie. My kids request a pie every time I ask them what they want for dinner. I try and change things up with my pies, and realised that my broccoli needed to be eaten that night. Therefore, I just went with what I had on hand and it turned out delicious. This pie is essentially a chicken pot pie, but with a twist. The twist been cheesy, snd the addition of broccoli.

Perfect Pie Crust…

The pie crust is easy and a my go-to, low carb pie crust. It’s extremely versatile and can work with both savoury pies (like this one), as well as sweet ones (with the addition of 2 tbsp of granulated sweetener).

Almond FlourBlanched fine almond flour is perfect for this crust.

Flaxseed MealI love using golden flaxseed meal in many of my gluten-free, keto “breads”, but either brown or golden work well in this recipe

Unsalted Butter Melting the butter means a super-easy crust.

Heavy Cream & Lemon Juice – This is a new addition to my pie crusts. It is essentially a “buttermilk” and makes the crust deliciously flakey.

Make Ahead…

The filling and pastry can both be made a day before. Bake the pastry as directed, cool it completely, then cover it with cling film and refrigerate. Fill the crust with the creamy chicken filling, cover it with aluminum foil and bake it covered for 20 minutes. Then take the foil off the top, and bake it until the cheeses are completely melted.

Store it in the refrigerator, in an air-tight container for up to 4 days. Heat it up the microwave, until warmed through.
