Paleo Chicken Pot Pie, A Paleo Comfort Food

Paleo Chicken Pot Pie is one of my all-time favorite comfort foods! My mom used to always make chicken pot pie and it was just the best…it still might be now that we have a Paleo recipe for it! With fall just around the corner, I’m ready for some fleece, movies and comfort food, that’s for sure! It also happens to be a great recipe to use some of that leftover Thanksgiving turkey!

Do you ever have those weeks that you think are never going to end? I think Angel and I are both having one of those weeks! We’ve been so busy! Even when we’re taking time for ourselves, we seem to just be running around like crazy people. Sometimes I have to remember that I work to support my life and Paleo Effect, not live to work.

Recipe: Paleo Chicken Pot Pie


  • 2 Chicken Breasts*
  • Paleo Adobo Seasoning
  • 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 cup Chicken Stock
  • 2 Tbsp Walnut Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ medium Yellow Onion
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup Arrowroot Powder
  • ¼ cup Coconut Milk
  • ½ cup Carrots
  • 2 Celery Stalks
  • 1 Sweet Potato
  • 1 cup Broccoli Florets
  • 1 tsp dried Sage
  • Coarse Sea Salt and Black Pepper (to taste)
  • Paleo Biscuits


*Or leftover turkey from Thanksgiving!

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Dice the chicken. Then dust the chicken with Paleo Adobo Seasoning. Heat 1 tbsp of the extra virgin olive oil and cook the chicken. Drain the grease and set the chicken aside.
  3. Dice the onions, carrots, celery, sweet potato (skins on) and mince the garlic.
  4. Heat the rest of the oil over medium high heat and add the onions and garlic. Cook until the onions are almost translucent, then add the arrowroot and incorporate – this should look like a paste. Then add the chicken stock and coconut milk. Mix thoroughly. Next, add the remaining vegetables, chicken and season with sea salt and pepper. Turn the heat down to low (~3).
  5. Cook, covered, until the mix is thick and the vegetables are slightly soft. Spoon into 4 regular, oven-safe ramekins and set them on a baking pan.
  6. Cover the filling from edge to edge with the biscuit mix (about ¼” thick) and pop in the oven for 15 minutes.
  7. Turn down the heat to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and cook until the biscuits are golden brown and the filling is bubbling out the edges, about 10-15 minutes.

    You are most welcome!

    Angle is lucky to have an in house Paleo Chef – Lucky gal! And we all benefit from her desires.

    Texture is defiantly part of the experiment with ingredients. Your Paleo Effect names is great market your recipes be first to WFoods to sell. You know it is coming and coming fast to packaged Paleo.

    hahahahaha! That’s a good one! Aw shucks, I should have called it that! :D

    You’re welcome and thanks Jean!! Angel is a big fan of the bread items, so I work really hard on the baking part (its tough to get the right taste AND texture though, right?!)

    ._. my mistake sorry about the mix up Organic of course :)

    Perhaps, if I did not see it on your site, however, put what you just told me on it. We make it, document in photos and eat it!

    I love your site love the recipe presentation and sending to my Gourmet friends. Here is one response..

    OMG sign me up. I read that bisquit recipe and then to make this…it will be fun to make these recipes.

    Actually, Angel is my boyfriend (he’s from Puerto Rico) ;)
    We both cook a lot actually, just different styles, as we grew up in different countries…its always fun to share the work!

    And yes, we’ve thought a lot about different Paleo ventures, but haven’t started yet – which is something we’ll soon have to revisit! And thanks for the props on the website. I know from cooking a lot that images of what I want to make really help me choose the right recipe, so I try to positively represent what we make, but without altering them or setting them up in a studio. Everything on our website is something we made for dinner, took a quick pic, and then ate! :)
