As much as I love fixing sides and main dishes, I think recipes that include everything in 1 simple dish make life much more trouble-free at times. I took my beloved original Chicken Potpie recipe (that’s not THM *sob*) and created something very similar! It was pretty easy to put together plus makes great leftovers too! The biscuit topping tastes very much like the Cheddar Biscuits from Red Lobster. Yum! Stay thinkin’ outside the box and this recipes is quite customizable as well. Change up the veggies if you want and be sure to taste as you prepare so the seasoning is to your liking.
Break up chicken and toss with McCormick’s Perfect Pinch Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning and set aside.
Prepare your Almond Flour Cheese Biscuit dough and set aside.
Spread Cheese Biscuit dough on top and bake!
- Cream Sauce:
- 4 TBS Butter
- ½ tsp. Gucomannan or Xanthan Gum
- 1 ½ Cups Chicken Broth
- ½ Cup Heavy Cream
- 1 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1-2 Light Laughing Cow Cheese wedges (Optional – this will help make the sauce a little thicker)
- About ⅓ Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese (optional)
- 1 (16oz) Bag Frozen Broccoli
- 1 (16oz) Bag Frozen Cauliflower
- 2 (13oz) Cans Chicken Breast drained OR 3 Chicken Breasts, Cooked and cubed
- 1 tsp. McCormick’s Perfect Pinch Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning
- About 1 to 2 tsp. Garlic Salt
- Little sprinkle of pepper (I’m not a huge pepper fan so feel free to add more if you like pepper)
- Use Almond Flour Cheese Biscuits Recipe: http://jensaves.com/breakthrough-recipe-for-thmers/
- Steam Broccoli and Cauliflower (I usually steam in separate pots) until cooked. Don’t overcook since you will be baking the whole recipe.
- Cook chicken in a pan with a little olive oil if using 3 chicken breasts. If using cans, drain and empty into a bowl. Shred with hands and toss with the McCormick’s Perfect Pinch Seasoning.
- To make cream sauce, melt butter in a saucepan, once it comes to a simmer, whisk in glucomannan or xathan gum. It should blend well in the simmering butter.
- Add chicken broth, bring to a simmer, then add heavy cream and almond milk and bring to a simmer whisking the entire time. The sauce unfortunately won’t get very thick, but you will be baking it so it thickens a little in the oven. Feel free to add a Laughing Cow Cheese if you want the sauce to be thicker.
- Add garlic salt and pepper to the sauce. Taste as you add the seasonings so it’s not too salty for your liking.
- In a 9x13, layer with cooked veggies on bottom, chicken, then cream sauce.
- Lastly add Almond Flour Biscuit dough using hands to spread over top.
- Bake 375 for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
