Keto Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

5 Stars (2 Reviews) 4 Comments

Using a rotisserie chicken or leftover holiday turkey, make a creamy keto chicken pot pie casserole filled with your favorite veggies and topped with an easy-to-make buttery drop biscuits instead of traditional pie crust.

This keto chicken pot pie casserole recipe is a twist on the classic pot pie, perfect for using up leftover holiday turkey from Thanksgiving or a rotisserie chicken.

A wooden spoon holds a serving of chicken pot pie casserole.

The pot pie filling is a rich, creamy mixture of sautéed celery, fresh green beans, carrots, yellow onion and mushrooms; although, you can use any vegetables in your fridge that have seen better days or even toss in some of your holiday leftovers like stuffing or green bean casserole. Arrowroot powder, chicken broth and cream cheese create a thicken and savory sauce that coats our veggie and chicken chunks.

Instead of messing with pie dough, keep your rolling pin stored away and top the chicken pot pie mixture with keto drop biscuits instead of flaky pie crust. These buttery almond flour based drop biscuits are easier to prepare since all the ingredients are combined in one bowl and dropped on top of the chicken mixture before baking to form golden, puffy biscuit dollops.

    Alternatives to keto biscuits

    Instead of this drop biscuit recipe, you can try using these keto alternatives:

    • Pie crust – Just roll out flaky pie crust and top the casserole with a layer of pie dough to bake.
    • Rolls – Similar to my pizza casserole recipe, top the pot pie with those buttery parmesan rolls.
    • Croutons – Make a batch of keto croutons by toasting chunks of bread tossed in melted butter in the oven until lightly toasted and golden brown.
    • Breadcrumbs – Make an easy batch of homemade breadcrumbs and sprinkle on top the chicken pot pie.
    • Crackers – Break up crackers into small pieces or pulverize. Then sprinkle on top the keto casserole before baking.
