Paleo Chicken Pot Pie

It’s March 14th, which means it’s Pi Day! A day honoring the mathematical constant π. …*crickets*…  Ok well I don’t like math either, but I sure like pies so here is my brand new recipe for Paleo Chicken Pot Pie! Mmm. Pot pie. I love it. It’s so warm and comforting. I have been wanting to create a paleo pot pie recipe for a while now, so when I heard this mathematical phenomenon celebratory day was upon us I figured it was now or never.

This pot pie recipe is grain-free and dairy-free, but you’d never be able to tell. The chicken and vegetable filling is rich and creamy, and the crust is buttery with a hint of sweetness. This amount of filling fills a regular 9″ pie dish perfectly. I only put a crust on top of mine, but I bet you could double the crust ingredients to make a bottom and a top if you desire.
