Paleo Chicken Pot Pie

20150302_211731

I love chicken pot pie but I don’t make it often, particularly since I avoid grains and potatoes.  Today I had a left over roast chicken in the fridge and some left over breadfruit in the freezer and figured I could put them together pretty easily. Since I am trying to adhere to a low fodmap diet, I didn’t include any oniony vegetables or garlic. I don’t know if breadfruit is low fodmap or not.

breadfruit crust:

1-1/4 cup breadfruit that has been diced and steamed
3 TBS red palm oil
1 tsp salt
2 TBS coconut flour

Combine the breadfruit, palm oil and salt in a food processor. Add coconut flour as needed to thicken the crust. I didn’t get the crust into a condition in which I could roll it out. I just flattened it with my hands and put it on the top of the pie.

filling:
2 cups cooked chicken, diced
1 carrot, sliced into rounds
2 stalks celery, sliced
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
6 oz frozen peas
1 TBS coconut oil
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 TBS chopped parsley
salt and pepper to taste

Melt the oil in a frying pan and saute the mushrooms, carrots, and celery until the mushrooms have lost some of their liquid and the vegetables are partly cooked. Add the peas, chicken, parsley and broth. When the mixture is warm, place in a pyrex dish or deep-dish pie plate. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cover with the breadfruit crust. Place in a 400 F oven until filling is bubbling and top is nicely browned (about 20 minutes).
