Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chicken Potpie

Whenever my father used to go on business trips, my mother would pull out the Stouffer’s. Besides the classic mac-n-cheese, turkey tetrazzini was my favorite. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I had chicken potpie and all I could think was how much it tasted like the frozen TV dinner.

The flavors, the creamy texture, the warmth all brought me home, but could I convince myself that a gluten-free, dairy-free version could be just as good or even better than the original? With this recipe, I’m sold. My friends and I are playing with ratios again as part of the Gluten-Free Ratio Rally. What’s the Gluten-Free Ratio Rally? We’re a group of food bloggers and cookbook authors committed to baking with ratios. This month’s assignment: pie. Thanks, Lisa, from Gluten Free Canteen, for being our host! Please check Lisa’s site for the complete list of bloggers with links to their pie recipes.

Me and my ratio: After playing around in the kitchen with various ratios, this one made me (and my family) the happiest. It’s easy to remember, too. Feel free to have fun with the ratios. It will depend ever so slightly on the ratio of grains and starches in your gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. Also, just in case, I’ve included cup and spoon measurements if that’s what you’re more comfortable with.

4 parts flour
2 parts fat
1 part egg

Makes: One 9-inch pie


For the filling:
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
2 carrots—peeled, quartered lengthwise and cut into 1/4-inch pieces
¼ cup peas, thawed if frozen
One 8-ounce container sliced mushrooms
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons Silvana’s Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Blend, plus more for dusting
1¼ cups nondairy creamer or heavy cream
3 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme

For the crust:
1¾ cups (245g) Silvana’s Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour Blend, plus more for dusting
¼ teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (117g) frozen buttery sticks or unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1 egg (58g), lightly beaten, plus 1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water, for egg wash

If you’re not baking the pie right away, cover with plastic wrap; chill in the fridge.

1. Make the filling: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, carrots, peas, mushrooms, ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle the flour blend on top; stir for 1 minute. Stir in the creamer and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in the chicken and thyme; season with salt, if needed. Pour the filling into a greased 9-inch pie pan.
2. Make the crust: Preheat the oven to 375°. In a food processor, combine the flour blend, salt and buttery sticks and pulse until coarse crumbs form. Add the beaten egg; pulse until the dough almost forms a ball. Remove the dough and gather it into a ball.
3. Place a piece of plastic wrap on a clean surface. Lightly dust with flour blend and place the dough on top, sprinkle with more flour and cover with another piece of plastic wrap. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 10-inch circle. Remove the plastic wrap on top of the dough. Flip the dough on top of the pie filling and remove the plastic wrap. Trim any excess dough, crimp crust edges together. Brush the dough with the egg wash and make 3 slits on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet; bake until golden, about 1 hour.

24 Comments: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Chicken Potpie

Morri Said:

As always, Silvana, you made a delish dish.

Rachel @ The Crispy Cook Said:

Sounds like divine comfort food. Great job for the GF Ratio Rally!

Erin Swing Said:

When can I come over?

Lisa @ GF Canteen Said:

I’m with Erin. We will be over soon! That looks fabulous. I love chicken pot pie. We grew up with the tiny frozen pot pies (cheap and easy) but I love the homemade version so much more. Yum.

Karen Robertson Said:

Chicken potpie–we are officially now ready for the winter and a warm fireplace.

I was a little late to the rally but my pie is now posted

Jenn Said:

Yay for another pot pie!! Looks absolutely amazing :)

mary fran Said:

I think I am going to have to convince someone to bake this for me while I am still on bed rest…

I don’t know how you find the time to do this and that lovely magazine of yours!

~Mrs. R Said:

Well I made your Chicken Pot Pie for dinner last night and am back to report… it was fantastic! I also used a version of your crust, as the one I came up with is only good for a dessert with all that sugar… But we had my Mock Apple Pie for dessert!! And I am making more mini Pot Pies for lunch this afternoon. I love this recipe! THANK YOU!! I had really been missing the childhood flavor of those frozen pies and yours taste divine.
Blessings,
~Mrs. R

InTolerant Chef Said:

Sounds so yummy! Great recipe, yumm…

Janis Said:

Is there a substitute for the creamer/heavy cream?

Angie Halten Said:

I’ve been looking for a chicken pie recipe. This looks great, I can’t wait to try it!

Jennifer Said:

In response to Janis, MimicCreme is a great substitute for heavy cream in recipes. Will also be trying EnerG egg replacer. Can’t wait to try this. thanks

Lisa Said:

I loved the individual Turkey Potpies from your book and was wondering if I could just make one big pie instead. It looks like the exact same recipe. I like that it is not soupy, but my husband was raised on the frozen ones, so I will be adding more liquid. You also use rice milk in the book recipe, not heavy cream. Is heavy cream not a dairy? Thanks for all that you do, because my family is all the happier since I was directed to your book.

Caitlin Said:

Cant wait to try this!!! Is there crust on the bottom as well? It says to crimp the crust edges together but it also says to pour the filling into a greased pie pan before making the crust?
