Chicken Pot Pie

Left over crock pot chicken means two things, homemade chicken stock and homemade gluten free, dairy free pot pie! Within five minutes of being up this morning Charley wanted to make sure that’s what was on the menu for dinner! I will say this does have a coconut taste I thought my kids would never like it but they love it. Their favorite part is the crust. I usually double this in hopes of a little left overs for a hot lunch in school lunch thermos.2013-01-21 10.39.07

  1. With these recipes you need to start including all the nutritional info such as Calories, fat, carbs, fiber, sodium, etc. πŸ™‚ good luck!

    • Jay sorry I’m not going to do that. I’m not posting as a “diet” plan, I don’t believe in counting calories or fat or the whole reading of labels. Read the ingredients, eat real food. This blog is about eating clean fresh real and healthy foods. If for medical reasons someone needs to know they will have to plug it in to there own formula. Remember I’m just a mom not a chef or dietitian. πŸ™‚
