Gluten-Free Chicken Pot Pie is classic comfort food, and our friend Rachelle is the dairy-free pie crust queen! We've had good results making this recipe with real butter and Pamela's GF All-Purpose Flour Blend, so feel free to make those swaps.
Goodness who doesn't enjoy chicken pot pies - especially gluten-free chicken pot pies? I have a weak spot for comfort food, there is just something about comfort food that just makes you feel so good. I have always enjoyed cooking and baking as it is another comfort of mine, my world never does seem quite right when I'm not in the kitchen creating recipes and food for my family and friends. I get great pleasure in creating recipes for everyone, it seems that every where I go I'm thinking of what I can create next and am excited to get home to get back in the kitchen turn on the Pandora and cook.
