Chicken Bacon Biscuit Pot Pie-
Paleo, grain free and low carb, this is a chicken pot pie with a bacon biscuit crust.
This savory Chicken bacon biscuit pot pie is grain free, paleo and low carb. Chicken and veggies in a mushroom gravy that is topped with a grain free, bacon infused biscuit crust. If you tolerate dairy,then you can also add cheese to the crust.
Oh my goodness, this pie was a hit with my family, and even he veggies were tasty in this. This is a healthy pot pie that you can feel good about eating. Loaded with protein, fiber, antioxidants and healthy fats.
I used a 1/2 tsp of arrowroot powder to slightly thicken the gravy, but I am aware that it is higher carb ingredient, although not in this small amount. It is optional, as the gravy was fairly thick enough without it. However, it did not really add any significant amount of carbs to the recipe in that tiny amount and it is grain free.
