Chef V’s Cooking with V – Chicken Pot Pie

Welcome to Chef V's Cooking School!

I'm Veronica, Certified Nutritional Therapist, author, and proud owner of Chef V. You might know me for my Green Drink and Cleanses, but I started Chef V as a personal chef. In my first video cooking series, I'll be sharing some of my clients' favorite recipes with you.

Using this blog and my YouTube channel, I welcome you to my kitchen. We're going to laugh, learn and cook – together.

This month we are making Chicken Pot Pie with my trusty sous chef and husband, Brandon.

CHICKEN POT PIE

Watch Veronica make the recipe in the video above and follow along with the directions, below.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil (separated)
  • ½ white onion, diced
  • 1 Gluten Free pie crust
  • 1 lb. Organic Chicken, poached or use rotisserie chicken
  • ½ cup Fresh or frozen Peas
  • 1 Carrot, chopped
  • 1 Celery, chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp. Gluten Free flour (separated)
  • 2 cups Chicken or vegetable stock.
  • ½ cup dairy free milk
  • 1 egg white to brush the top of pie crust.
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • dash of pepper

DIRECTIONS

shredding the chicken

PREPARE THE CHICKEN

You can poach the chicken or I like to use a rotisserie chicken, it’s easier and has more moisture. I like to shred the chicken instead of chop it.

PREPARE THE VEGGIES

Chop the carrot, onion, and celery.

Sauté the vegetables in a pan – heat 1 tbsp. olive oil and add onion, add carrot, then celery to the pan. Add salt and pepper. Sauté lightly for 2 minutes.

MAKE THE ROUX (SAUCE) 

In another pan create the roux. Add 1 tbsp. olive oil and add 1 tbsp. gluten free flour and stir until golden brown (about 2 minutes). Slowly add chicken or vegetable stock ½ cup at a time and stir until you have like a gravy. Add salt to taste. Reduce the heat to low, add the dairy-free milk, and continue to stir.

boil water

PREPARE THE PIE

Add the gravy, the chicken, and cooked vegetables to a pie pan.

MAKE THE PIE CRUST

This recipe uses a purchased gluten-free dough. Or you can use my recipe for gluten-free pie crust. 

Roll out the gluten-free dough. Place 1 tbsp gluten-free flour on a surface and roll the dough into a circular shape, slightly larger than the pie pan, with a rolling pin.

adding egg white to pie crust

ASSEMBLE THE PIE

Place the crust over the pie pan and press the edges with a fork. Add some slits at the top for air and decor. Mix one egg white and brush the top of the pie.

BAKE AND SERVE

Bake in the oven uncovered for 30-45 minutes until the crust is a nice golden brown. Serve hot.

TASTING THE PIE

NOW THE BEST PART – THE TASTE TEST!

Brandon says “winner winner, chicken dinner.”

I have lemon water in the morning and then I wait until I'm hungry to have my Green Drink.

For Breakfast – Warm Cinnamon Quinoa 

For breakfast, Warm Cinnamon Quinoa fills the belly and tastes so good on a cold winter morning. I use quinoa, my own recipe for raw almond milk, raw coconut nectar, and ground cinnamon. You can top it with berries and/or nuts.

For Lunch – Mediterranean Butternut Squash + Carrot Stew with Quinoa

For lunch this month you have my Mediterranean stew, made with mellow spices for a flavorful and healthy mid-day meal.

This stew can be prepared a day ahead. It's great to take to work or enjoy for dinner the next day, or for a warm and healthy meal for the kids to come home to and easily reheat.
