Keto Chicken Pot Pie Turnovers

Chicken pot pie in a handy turnover pocket makes it easy to have your favorite comfort food on the go. Pack these keto chicken pot pie turnovers in your lunch or have it on the go when you have a busy weeknight. My kids love these pot pies too! They are a frequent request for dinner or to pack in their lunches.

These keto chicken pot pie turnovers have all the flavors of a creamy chicken pie. Fresh thyme, garlic, onion, mushrooms, chicken and cream cheese constitute the filling of this variation of the American dinnertime classic.

This recipe works well for after Thanksgiving when you are loaded with lots of leftover turkey or on a cold day when you are wanting a hot dish but at work or on the run.

The Chicken

This recipe for keto pot pie calls for cooked chicken. I like to pick up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store when I don’t have any leftover cooked chicken. It makes prepping this recipe easy.

Simply pick the meat off the whole chicken. I like to go for the dark meat pieces first, like the thigh and drumstick, as these have a higher fat content that white meat.

Keto Pastry Crust

The keto pastry crust used in this keto lunch recipe is my keto dough or fathead dough. I like to use this dough for other recipes other than pizza. It makes a crispy, crunchy crust to envelop the chicken pot pie filling. The cheesiness of the crust works well with the whole recipe.

You can prep the fathead dough ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for a few days or in the freezer for 4-6 months. This will cut your recipe prep time in half for this keto meal.

How To Store Keto Chicken Pot Pie Turnovers

Besides making the fathead dough ahead of time, you can assemble these keto pot pie turnovers ahead of time before the baking step. Flash freeze separately until hard and store together in a ziploc bag in the freezer until ready to use. When you want to cook them, unthaw in the refrigerator overnight or cook from frozen.

Store any leftover keto chicken pot pie turnovers in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
