Easy Chicken Pot Pie

This easy recipe for chicken pot pie has just a top crust. I used cornmeal and honey in the topping for an old-fashioned taste. The vegetables I used are just a guideline- experiment with what you have left at the end of the week. I missed this comfort food because it is a great way to use leftover vegetables and chicken. The freshness of this dish will make you forget about those chalky-tasting, frozen chicken pot pies.

1 lb chicken breast, cooked and shredded

2 Tablespoons of rice flour

2 Tablespoons of olive oil

1/2 teaspoon dried mustard

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

5 carrots, sliced/diced thin

1 can quartered artichokes

1/2 of a large red bell pepper

1 pkg of sliced mushrooms

3/4 cup of sweet peas

1/2 cup boiling onions or regular onions, diced

1 3/4 cup of chicken stock (homemade or gf brand)

1 Tablespoon fresh basil, chopped finely

3 Tablespoons of sour cream

1 clove garlic, minced


1/2 cup of cornmeal

1/4 white rice flour plus 2 Tablespoons

2 Tablespoons of tapioca flour

3/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum

1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1 Tablespoon honey

3/4 cup of milk

2 Tablespoons of olive oil


Chop/dice/thaw the vegetables for the chicken pot pie. To prepare the boiling onions, boil them for 2 minutes and then immerse them in cold water. Cut off the ends of each onion, slip off the skin, and cut a shallow ‘x’ on the bottom.

In a Dutch oven, heat 2 Tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Add the 2 Tablespoons of rice flour, 1/2 teaspoon of dried mustard, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Cook about 2-3 minutes until bubbly and foamy. Slowly whisk in the chicken stock. Return to boiling. Add the vegetables and basil and simmer for ten to twelve minutes or until tender. Add the cooked chicken and the sour cream; combine well. Put the vegetable mixture in a 9×13 baking dish.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

To prepare the topping, combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together well. In a large bowl, combine the honey, milk, and olive oil. Add the dry ingredients and stir until moistened. Spread on top of the vegetable mixture.

Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.

Serves about 6

  1. This looks good! I like the unusual veggies in it. I LOVE Artichokes…love ‘em!!!

  2. I have never really liked chicken pot pie….maybe it was all those canned soup stuff. This looks great.

    That crust looks excellent. It would be great over chili, like chili pot pie? :)

  3. That is a great idea! I have never eaten chili that way before.

  4. I haven’t made or eaten chili like that before either…if you do it before I do, let me know how it is. :D

  5. First time to your site and I absolutely love your recipes.

    I have been craving chicken pot pie for some time now, but I was sure how to go about gluten-free. I will have to try this when I have some time. Thanks!

  6. I found your sight with a yahoo search for Gluten Free Chicken Casserole. This recipe fit the bill…making a few subs in on the veggies on hand.
    The crust was very thin and tasted great! The whole family DH, DS (6) and DS (4), and Gluten-free mom.
    Also, I forgot to add the sour cream. The filling was a little thin as a consequence, but still tasty.
    Thanks. I’ll be back.

    As for putting this crust over chili, that might be ok. It really is like a crust and not a cornbread.

  7. Thank you for the recipe. I stumbled upon your blog when I was searching GF recipes for my munchkin.

    I’m a hopeless cook. Just wondering if we could subs olive oil with canola (my daughter is a food allergic child. she is even allergic to cinnamon and .. olive oil :( .. )

    Again, thank you for sharing this recipe w/ us! :)

  12. I would love to make this recipe for a Gluten/Lactose/Corn Intolerant person. Is there a good substitute for the Corn meal and milk/sour cream? Thank you for your help. This is a fabulous resource.

  13. This chicken pot pie is….DELICIOUS! My husband is the gluten intolerant person, however, I’m quite glad to get to eat this : )

  14. My whole family loved this meal!! We didn’t have any corn meal so we used Bisquick (gluten free of course!) and it tasted so good! Everyone should try this meal!

  15. I was wondering if this would freeze well? I am having a baby soon and planning to put lots of gluten free dinners in the freezer for those first few weeks? Any thoughts on freezing this or any of your other meals? Thanks!
