Keto Chunky Chicken Pie Recipe


  • 1 1/2 pounds (680 g) dark meat chicken, no skin, but on the bone
  • 1 quart (960 ml) water
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) chicken bouillon concentrate
  • 1 pound (455 g) frozen vegetables
  • 1 cup (70 g) sliced mushrooms 1 cup (240 ml) low-carb milk or half-and-half
  • 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • guar or xanthan
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 batch Buttermilk Drop Biscuits


  1. Put chicken in a big saucepan and add the water and chicken bouillon concentrate
  2. Cover it, turn the heat to low, and let the whole thing simmer for 60 to 90 minutes
  3. Fish the chicken out with a fork or tongs and set it on a plate until cool enough to handle
  4. In the meantime, add the California-blend vegetables and the sliced mushrooms to the broth-I actually cut mine up a little more, but you can leave everything in really big chunks if you prefer
  5. Let this simmer for 25 to 30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender but not mushy
  6. While that’s happening, strip the chicken off the bones
  7. Discard the bones and cut the meat into bite-sized pieces
  8. Reserve
  9. When the vegetables are cooked, stir in the low-carb milk and poultry seasoning
  10. Thicken with guar or xanthan to make a rich gravy consistency
  11. Now add salt and pepper to taste and stir in the chicken
  12. Turn off the heat
  13. Preheat the oven to 475°F (240°C, or gas mark 9) and then make a batch of Buttermilk Drop Biscuit dough, stopping right before you add the buttermilk to the dry ingredients
  14. Spray a 2-quart 1 9-L casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray
  15. When the oven is up to temperature, turn the heat back on under the chicken and vegetable mixture and bring it back to a boil
  16. While that’s heating, stir the buttermilk into the biscuit dough
  17. Now, pour the boiling chicken mixture into the casserole dish and spoon the dough over the top
  18. Don’t worry about covering every single millimeter of the gravy with the dough; it’ll spread a bit
  19. Just spoon it on pretty evenly, and it’ll be fine
  20. Put it in the oven immediately and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden and then serve
