  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 8 oz sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

  • 1
    Place almond and coconut flours in freezer for 30 minutes.
  • 2
    In food processor, place chilled almond and coconut flours, 1 teaspoon dried thyme, 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Pulse until combined. Add 1/2 cup butter and 2 oz cream cheese; pulse 3 to 5 times or until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. With food processor running, quickly pour beaten egg through feed tube, and process a few seconds until dough begins to come together. Remove dough; shape into flattened disk. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate about 1 1/2 hours or until well chilled.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 9-inch deep-dish pie plate with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix 1 teaspoon xanthan gum and the water with whisk.
  • 4
    In 10-inch skillet, melt 1/4 cup butter over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir 5 to 6 minutes or until lightly browned. Reduce heat to medium; add onion. Cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until softened. Add 3/4 teaspoon thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper; cook and stir 1 minute. Add broth; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; beat in xanthan gum mixture with whisk. Continue to cook and stir until thickened. Remove from heat; add 4 oz cream cheese and the whipping cream. Beat with whisk until smooth. Stir in chicken. Pour into pie plate. Let stand 15 minutes to cool.
  • 5
    Place chilled dough between two pieces of parchment paper; roll into 10-inch circle. Peel one piece of parchment paper off dough (if dough is sticking, place back in refrigerator to chill 15 minutes).
  • 6
    Flip dough onto filling in pie plate. Peel remaining parchment paper off dough. Crimp edges.
  • 7
    Cover edges with foil; bake 20 minutes. Carefully remove foil; continue to bake 4 to 8 minutes or until crust is golden brown in center, deep golden brown on edges and filling is hot. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

  • Make sure that all the ingredients for the crust of your Keto-Friendly* Chicken Pot Pie are thoroughly chilled beforehand. This helps make the dough easier to handle.
  • In this Keto-Friendly* Chicken Pot Pie recipe, xanthan gum (which has a variety of culinary properties) both thickens the filling and helps to hold the crust together.
  • Because the filling in this pie is generous, it’s important to use a deep pie dish, as a standard pie dish may overflow.
