An easy low-carb casserole
Traditional chicken pot pie casserole is a classic comfort food. Most recipes call for biscuits made from scratch or crescent rolls on top.
This keto pot pie uses a quick low carb biscuit dough instead. The biscuit topping only requires six ingredients: almond flour, an egg, heavy whipping cream, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt.
It’s about as easy to make as popping open a can of crescent rolls! And much better for you without all the added carbs.
If you’re looking for a healthy chicken pot pie casserole to make for you or the family, you have to try this recipe.
How to make keto chicken pot pie casserole
This keto pot pie recipe comes together in three main steps. Simply cook and layer the ingredients, then bake!
Prepare the vegetables
- Place a pot with a little water on the stove over high heat. Add the broccoli and cauliflower, then bring the water to a boil.
- Blanch the vegetables for 5 minutes, then rinse and drain.
- Add the cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, and red bell pepper to a 9×13 casserole dish and toss to mix everything together.
Cooking the creamy chicken filling
- In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Then add chicken along with salt and pepper to taste.
- Cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.
- Pour the chicken broth and heavy whipping cream into the skillet. Stir to combine.
- Add the garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Then cook the mixture down until the sauce has thickened.
- Remove the skillet from heat and mix in the Parmesan cheese.
- Pour the creamy chicken mixture over the vegetables in the casserole dish. Toss to combine.
Adding the biscuit dough and baking
- In a large bowl, mix the biscuit topping ingredients until well combined.
- Spread the biscuit topping over the pot pie filling in thin pieces. You want it to cover most of the filling. Use your hands to place the flattened pieces of dough evenly over the top.
- Place the pot pie casserole in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350°F until the biscuit topping is cooked.
Once the crust is browned on top and the pot pie is bubbling, your creamy chicken pot pie casserole is ready!
How to freeze pot pie casserole
Casseroles are great freezer meals to feed the whole family on busy weeknights.
For this easy chicken pot pie casserole, you can choose to freeze it before or after you bake it.
If you want to freeze it before baking, store the casserole in a dish that is safe to go straight from the freezer to the oven. When you’re ready, bake it for longer to ensure it cooks through. You want a browned biscuit crust and a bubbling pot pie.
If you cook keto chicken pot pie and want to freeze any leftovers, store them in an airtight container. To reheat, place in the refrigerator overnight to thaw. Then you can reheat in the oven on a low temperature or microwave as individual servings.
How to make pot pie in a casserole dish
A classic chicken pot pie is baked in a pie dish. The filling is completely covered by a flaky pastry, which is really the star of the presentation.
I prefer to make a pot pie casserole because it’s much easier. Instead of an elaborate, perfect crust over the filling, you just add biscuit dough on top.
The rest of the recipe is the same as a classic pot pie. The filling is still a creamy mixture of chicken and vegetables that you add to the casserole dish.
Then you spread out the biscuit dough on top and throw it in the oven.
It takes less time, and it tastes just as delicious!
