Gluten Free Dairy Free Low Carb Chicken Pot Pie

You don't usually hear "gluten free," "dairy free," "low carb," and "chicken pot pie" together -- but today is Father's Day, and low carb ScratchupsDad deserved some comfort food! Chicken pot pie is one of the top comfort foods he misses from his pre-low carb days, so I set out to scratch up something that both he and dairy free Junior High Guy could enjoy, cognitive dissonance be damned.

Last week, Dominick's in Chicagoland had its 75% off grocery going-out-of-business sale. This was a bittersweet shopping experience -- while the deals were great (and random, depending what was left on the shelf), I'll miss both the store and many of the cashiers. I ended up with some random bargains on things like cans of artichoke hearts and a bag of sundried tomatoes, so decided to play with colors and textures and scratch those up together with a pack of cheap chicken leg quarters … [Read more...]
