Get ready to feel nostalgic with this Gluten-Free Skillet Chicken Pot Pie. The savoury, hearty pie holds a special place in our home. The filling is made with chicken, carrots, peas and herbs cooked in the most delicious creamy gravy and topped with a flaky buttery crust.

Where does chicken pot pie come from?

This may surprise you, the pie originated in Greece. In this gluten-free version, I used only one skillet, making this an easier recipe in comparison to the traditional dish.

The delicious filling is cooked right in the skillet and then topped with a layer of flakey gluten-free buttery crust made from scratch. You will love it!

The pastry is made with basic pantry ingredients, flour, butter, milk, baking powder, salt and a sprinkle of rosemary for flavour.

To make the pastry, first, mix the dry ingredients. Then work the cold butter into the flour mixture, add milk and shape into a disk. Roll between sheets of parchment paper and top the filling with the pastry.

A simple pie pastry that is flaky and buttery in minutes, yum!

Giving up gluten doesn’t mean you have to give up your favourite comfort food. Think, warming soups, hearty casseroles, chicken pot pie, southern fried chicken, pizza not to mention pies, bread and chocolate chip cookies.

In the past, cooking seemed simpler because you didn’t have to think about multiple food sensitivities.

Today, with the right ingredients, and guidance, you can bring back those foods that feel like home, such as this gluten-free skillet chicken pot pie. Enjoy!

that is wonderful, thank you for sharing


I make this regularly because even my picky 2 year old loves it and will happily eat up every last bit on his plate. I used bob's 1 to 1 GF baking flour and it made a delicious, buttery, flaky crust. I also just used poultry seasoning I had on hand for the spices and it was perfect. Sooo good!


Delicious and easy to make!
