Paleo Turkey Pot Pie (Gluten Free, Lactose Free, and Low Carb). 849SHARES. I suggest using homemade chicken stock for this recipe if you have it. You can use canned, but homemade stock is LOADED with gelatin, which gives the pies the richness that you normally get with cream. That’s why we’re sharing a tasty twist on Turkey Pot Pie! It turned out better than I expected and reminded me of the store-bought pot pies that my Dad used to get us when he didn’t feel like cooking. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and spent it indulging with loved ones.
This paleo chicken pot pie can be made with leftover rotisserie chicken, Thanksgiving turkey, or fresh chicken. I happened to make it with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. This was the first time I have ever made a chicken pot pie from scratch. You can use leftover chicken or turkey, you can buy a whole raosted chicken ready to eat and shred it or you can fry up some uncooked chicken breasts! If you make your own chicken breasts – you can shred it in 60 seconds, learn how!
Made it with turkey to use up leftovers from Thanksgiving, then used parsnips, carrots, mushrooms, celery, vegetable stock, butter, and added a little sage to the spices – no salt or pepper. Next time I’m going to make my standard pot pie (meat, onion, carrot, parsnip, celery, maybe turnips, and the obligatory frozen peas) but use all of these concepts and the crust to keep it paleo.
