Did you ever think you could enjoy chicken pot pie on a low carb diet? Well you can! Use my basic biscuit recipe to top off a skillet or baking dish with yummy chicken and veggies bathed in a thick, luscious creamy sauce. Dinner time!
1 TBSP ghee
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped carrots (omit if too carby for you)
1/2 cup chopped broccoli stems (avoid the “florets)
3/4 cup chopped cauliflower
1 cup chopped zucchini
1 can green beans, drained
2 stalks chopped celery
1/3 cup sliced and chopped mushrooms
3 tablespoons butter
2 cups chicken bone broth
4 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp Bell’s poultry seasoning
3 cups of cooked chicken
One batch of Bell’s biscuits Recipe for Belle’s LC Biscuits
Saute the vegetables (first 8 ingredients) in ghee in a large cast iron skillet under the vegetables are tender. Add 3 tablespoons butter and chicken bone broth. Simmer until the bone broth is reduced (about 10 minutes). Add cream cheese and heavy cream and simmer until thickened. Add the remaining seasonings and mix well. Add the chicken and mix into the vegetables and sauce.
While the chicken pot pie filling is simmering, prepare the biscuit recipe. Once the filling is ready, drop the biscuit dough on top, covering the filling. Bake at 375 degrees for about 20-22 minutes until biscuits are browned and not doughy underneath.
If you really want to make this decadent add one cup of cheddar cheese and 1/3 cups chopped bacon to the biscuit dough. Enjoy!
This looks so good but how much chicken do you use with this recipe?
Used about 3 cups of chopped chicken. You can use more or less to your liking that three cups will be just about right
Thanks again Kristie. I’m sure it will be a hit with everyone.
Don’t tell my boyfriend, but I think I love you. I’ve been hoping you’d post this recipe. Can’t wait to try it.
Lol!! I’m betting your boyfriend will thank me if you make this! 😉 the way to a man’s heart……
What are the carbs? how many servings?
The carbs depend on the vegetables you use. One twelfth of the biscuit recipe is 3 total carbs per biscuit. It’s 1.5 net carbs. 1 cup of zuchinni has 3.5 total carbs and about half thay in net carbs. Hope that gets you started with the carb counts! Because carbs vary by ingredient I’m always hesitant to list them. My cream cheese is 1 carb per serving, but some brands have 2 cabs per serving.
