Greetings low carb travelers.
Today I’m going to share a recipe for low carb skillet chicken pot pie with a biscuit topping. But first, I have to share this quirky old commercial that I just found. Obviously, you can skip it and scroll down to the recipe, I won’t judge. But do take a look. It’s really funny.
The ad opens with a conversation between Phil and “Rag Mop”.
(Can you guess which one has the unruly hairdo?) Phil starts waxing poetic about this new product he uses called Vaseline Hair Tonic. And it looks to be pure vaseline. There is some scientific mumbo jumbo and then my favorite part, the jingle.
“In the bottle and in your hair, the difference is clearly there.
It’s clean, it’s clear, it’s Vaseline! (Hair tonic for your hair!)”
I love how it ends with “Hair tonic for your hair!”, as if there were any other place you’d use hair tonic.
But let’s move on to one of my favorite comfort foods: low carb chicken pot pie.
This recipe is a super easy dinner that takes about 30 minutes to make. I based my recipe on a quick skillet chicken pot pie recipe from Cook’s Illustrated. The trick to this dish is baking the biscuits separately from the pot pie. This means that you won’t have half-cooked biscuits on top. And the filling comes together easily with one pan on the stove. I used Carbquik Baking Mix for the biscuits because it is the closest to Bisquick that I have found. But don’t freak out when you read the carb count for this recipe! Carbquik has 16g of carbohydrate in each serving, but 14g of that is fiber. This means that this recipe still clocks in at just 7g net carbs.
And with a prep and cook time of 30 minutes, this will give you plenty of time to work on your hairdo. Sweet!
