How to make the best low carb chicken pot pie recipe
STEP 1: Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
STEP 2: Once the butter has melted, add the onion, celery, carrots, garlic, thyme, and a little salt and pepper to the pan. Next, sauté the vegetables until they are crisp-tender.
STEP 3: Add the chicken to the pan and sauté until is is cooked through.
STEP 4: Add the heavy cream, chicken stock, and Dijon mustard to the pan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
STEP 5: Reduce the heat to low and let simmer for 5 to 7 minutes.
STEP 6: Mix in the cheese until it is melted into the sauce and simmer until the sauce has reduced and thickened.
STEP 7: Stir in the peas.
STEP 8: Divide the pot pie filling evenly between 4 mini pie pans. (This is the set that I have)
How to Make Keto Pot Pie Crust
STEP 9: Preheat oven to 375°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine mozzarella cheese and cream cheese. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir to combine and microwave 1 additional minute.
STEP 10: Mix in almond flour, egg, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, sea salt and black pepper. Mix the dough all ingredients are well combined. If the dough becomes stringy or the cheese is not quite melted enough, you can put it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds.
STEP 11: Divide the dough into four equal pieces. Spread the dough pieces out into large flat, even circles on parchment paper or a silpat. If it starts to get sticky, wet your hands a little bit to prevent it from sticking to you.
STEP 12: Top each mini pie pan with one with a piece of dough, folding it down around the edges. Cut slits in the center of the dough in the shape of an X, so that it can vent as it bakes. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown on top.

The beauty of making a pot pie is that there are really no rules when it comes to the protein and vegetable choices. You can add in any low carb vegetables you prefer. Some of my favorites are mushrooms, bell peppers, asparagus, broccoli, and cauliflower.
½ cup of peas has just 6 net carbs. ½ cup of chopped carrots has less that 5 net carbs. That's 11 carbs spread across 4 servings. I don't know about you, but it was never my love of vegetables that contributed to my weight struggles.
