These Mini Chicken Pot Pies are worth all the time it takes to make them, especially for those of us on the AIP/Paleo who might miss the old-fashioned kind because of being gluten free and dairy free.Jump to Recipe
There are some recipes that, though they are involved and take for-freaking-ever to make, you HAVE to have. Because, you know, chicken pot pie, and the 3-for-a-dollar Swanson pot pies that we (I?) loved as kids aren’t working for us nowadays. I hope you’ll find these satisfying, in spite of the time investment. 😊
A couple of recipe notes:
1.) You can make the filling ahead of time, but the pie crust really needs to be made fresh.
2.) There are a couple of tools that are super helpful to have for this recipe. One is a set of silicone cupcake liners. They help the pies retain their shape, and make them easy to extract. I love the ones that a friend gave me years ago (I think from Sur La Table?), but I could not find them on Amazon to share with you. There are others, but I didn’t feel 100% comfortable sharing them with you since I have no experience with them…
The other tool that is helpful to have is a set of circle cutters like these. I do have this set and LOVE them. One side is fluted, and the other is plain. There are six sizes, so they’re quite versatile.
I wish you a warm and beautiful holiday. If you don’t celebrate a particular holiday, I wish you many, many reasons to celebrate life. Most of all, I wish you love and healing.
