This recipe for low carb and Keto Chicken Pot Pie is an easy 30 minute dinner. It's a Carbquik recipe that has just 500 calories and 7g net carbs per serving.
Greetings chicken pot pie enthusiasts.
You better hold on to your socks, because I’m about to share a recipe for Keto Biscuit Chicken Pot Pie that will knock them right off. It’s got all the goodness of a normal high carb chicken pot pie, but with a fraction of the carbs.
I don’t know about you, but my children are not impressed with my low carb diet food.
They are frozen chicken pot pie purists and will settle for nothing less than the ones made by Marie Callender. Her pot pies are made up of a cream-based sauce with bite-sized pieces of chicken, carrots, peas, and onions mixed in. And they are topped with a lovely flaky crust.
And I'm not going to lie, they are awfully tasty.
But you know what else is awfully tasty?
This low carb chicken pot pie recipe that I am about to share. Just like the original, it’s got a creamy sauce with chicken, onions, carrots, and peas in it. But in place of the standard pie crust, this Keto chicken pot pie uses easy-to-make low carb drop biscuits. By cooking the biscuits separately from the sauce, it means that they are cooked through and not mushy and undercooked on the bottom like normal biscuit topped pot pies.
For the biscuits, I used a low carb baking mix called Carbquik.
It’s a flour blend that is a lot like Bisquick. But unlike the 25g net carbs per serving that Bisquick has, Carbquik just has 2g. So this Carbquik recipe is a simple low carb drop biscuit that just takes 10 minutes. You won’t see Carbquik in stores though, so you’ll need to order it from Amazon if you want to try it out. Alternately, you can also use my recipe for low carb cheese biscuits. It uses coconut flour in place of Carbquik, so it's much easier to find locally.
You have some chicken options as well.
The recipe calls for chicken breasts but you can use skinless boneless chicken thighs as well. Or, better yet, you can bypass the step where you saute the chicken and use bite-sized pieces of rotisserie chicken instead. (I will never understand how a beautifully cooked rotisserie chicken costs less than a raw chicken. It is one of life’s great mysteries.)
If you are on a very strict low carb diet, you can skip the carrots and peas.
But it’ll be a shame if you do because carrots, onions, and peas are classic chicken pot pie ingredients. I guess you could swap them out with cauliflower or radishes or something, but it just won’t be the same. Even with the peas and carrots, the net carb count is still just 7g, so why not live a little?
Ok, I think that's the limit of my low carb chicken pot pie knowledge.
But to circle back to my persnickety kids, I am sorry to report that my low carb chicken pot pie could not tempt them away from their precious Marie Callender’s frozen dinners. But don't let that dissuade you from trying out this low carb version.

Step 1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2. Add Carbquik, butter, and baking powder to a food processor or high powdered blender and pulse a few times.
Step 3. Add cream and pulse a few times.
Step 4. Your dough will be starting to form. You want to be able to form it into a ball with your hands. Add almond milk to the dough until it’s wet enough to form into a ball.
Step 5. Divide the dough ball into 4 parts. Form the dough into biscuit-shaped 3 inch disks on the cookie sheet.
Step 6. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet.
Step 7. While the biscuits are baking, you can make the filling.
Step 8. Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a large frying pan over Medium heat until the foam subsides.
Step 9. Add chicken and lightly brown on all sides until opaque but not cooked through, 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Step 10. Add 1 tablespoon butter to the pan and cook over Medium heat until foam subsides.
Step 11. Add onions, carrots, salt and thyme and cook until softened, 5 minutes.
Step 12. Move the onions and carrots to the side and add remaining 1 tablespoon butter to the pan, so that it pools in the middle. Add Xanthan Gum and cook until dissolved.
Step 13. Add broth, heavy whipping cream and almond milk to the pan and bring to a simmer over Medium heat. Simmer until thickened, 2 minutes.
Step 14. Add the chicken back in, cover the pan, lower the heat and simmer for 8 minutes.
Step 15. Add peas to the pan and cook until warmed, 2 minutes.
Step 16. Pour the filling into 4 individual bowls and top with biscuits.

This looks and sounds delicious 🙂 My kids will eat just about anything I feed them - and we eat all sorts of things here. We are not on a low carb diet, but I am not against making low carb meals!
That's great. If you aren't doing low carb, you could make Bisquick biscuits to go with the chicken pot pie filling. It's much easier to find than Carbquik.
Loved this recipe. I didn't have Carbquik, so I used the other biscuit recipe you have instead. But I just ordered the Carbquik from Amazon, so I'm looking forward to trying it.
That's great. Let me know how you like the Carbquik biscuits.
This is a delicious comfort food. I love how all the flavors come together. I haven’t tried Carbquik before. I have heard how amazing it is for ‘Low carbers’ I should give it a try. I really like how you always put a little humor in your posts with these videos 😀
Thanks so much. That is so nice to hear!

I love how sauce this is, and the biscuit topping really makes it. Nice. The old commercial is pretty hilarious. LOL.
Yep, it's super saucey. Glad you got a kick out of the commercial.

Thanks! It really is the perfect thing on a snowy day like today. (Here in Pittsburgh anyway!)
