Keto Pie Crust:


  • 4 Tbsp. Allowed Butter can use non-dairy
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion
  • 3 Stalks Celery
  • 2 Large (or 3 medium) Carrots
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • 1/4 Cup Frozen Peas can increase to 1/2 cup if desired
  • 2 Cups Cooked Chicken or Turkey
  • 1 Cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 Cup Full Fat Canned Coconut Milk well shaken or stirred, works best if not refrigerated
  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp. Ground Thyme
  • 1 Egg optional



  • Add the almond flour, ground flax seeds, coconut flour, sea salt, psyllium powder, and monkfruit or preferred sweetner to the bowl of a food procesor and process until combined. Add the butter to the flour and pulse until well combined and looks like sand.
  • Add the egg and 1 Tbsp. water. Pulse until combined and forms a ball. Your dough should have the consistency of Play-Dough. If it's crumbly you need to add 1 Tbsp. of ice cold water or if it's too soft or like batter, add 1 Tbsp. almond flour until you reach the desired consistency. It's perfect when it forms a ball in the food processor.
  • Place the dough in a baggie and put in the refrigerator while you make the filling.

Chicken Pot Pie:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Start by finely cutting up the celery, carrots, and onion.
  • In a cast-iron skillet or large pan, melt the butter (can use non-dairy) over medium heat. Add the celery, carrot, onion, and peas. Saute about 5 minutes, or until veggies start to soften.
  • Add the chicken, coconut milk, chicken broth, salt, pepper, and thyme. Taste and adjust seasonings. Bring to boil.
  • Allow to gently boil for 10 - 15 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. If not using a cast-iron skillet transfer to a deep pie pan. Set aside. 
  • Place the pie crust on a large piece of parchment paper and cover with plastic wrap. Roll out from the center using a rolling pin. Invert over the pot pie and gently press into the sides of the dish to seal, patching up any cracks with your fingers.
  • Brush the top with a beaten egg (optional). Bake for 20 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  • Use a large spoon to serve.
