Chicken Pot Pie has always been a comfort food for me. So one day when the kids were all sick at, I put together this Gluten Free Chicken Pot Pie Recipe for them. It immediately became a family favorite & now we enjoy it all the time… not just when we’re sick. The Crust is light & flakey, and the Filling is delicious – you won’t even know it’s Gluten Free!
You can prepare this Pot Pie with just about any meat, or none at all. And the veggies can range from frozen to whatever’s fresh at your farmers market! Best of all, I make it with my Gluten Free Pie Crust so all of us can eat together. It freezes fantastically & can be prepared in bulk so you can have it ready for dinner in a pinch!

BULK PREPARATION & FREEZING:
- You can easily prepare this recipe in bulk – I usually make 4 at a time. I cook 1 for dinner and freeze the others without cooking them. There’s no need to defrost the Pot Pie before placing it in the oven at 425 for 45 min – 1 hour. I generally test the center with my thermometer to make sure the center is thoroughly thawed and reaches at least 100 degrees.
