Gluten Free Chicken Pot Pie


1 tsp. Olive oil
1 small White onions (diced)
1 Large stalk Celery, raw (diced)
1 large Carrots, raw (peeled and diced)
8 ounces Red potatoes (diced)
8 ounces Boneless, skinless chicken breast (cubed)
2 cups Low sodium chicken or vegetable stock
1 tsp. Dried rosemary
1/2 tsp., leaves Dried thyme
1/4 tsp. Salt
1 to taste Black pepper
1 spray Spray olive oil
1 1/2 cup Water
1/3 cup Yellow cornmeal (coarse ground)
1/2 cup Frozen peas
3 Tbsp. Cornstarch


Place the olive oil in a medium sauce pan over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook for about 4 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the celery, carrot and potato. Cook for about 4 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the chicken breast and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the chicken stock, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir and cover. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

While the chicken is cooking, place two square sheets of aluminum foil on the counter. Spray lightly with oil.

Place the water in a small sauce pan pot over high heat.

While whisking, add the cornmeal. Whisk continuously over medium high heat for about 10 minutes or until thick.

When thick, pour the cornmeal onto the center of the foil. Make one small round on each sheet about 6 inches in diameter. Let cool.

When the potatoes are tender, add the peas. Stir.

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Place the 3 tablespoons cornstarch in a small dish with two tablespoons of cold water. Stir until dissolved. Add that mixture to the chicken and stir well.

Reduce the heat to medium and stir for about 3 minutes while the sauce thickens.

Ladle the chicken mixture into two small bowls. Place the round of cornstarch topping on top and place the bowls in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve.

Recipe Notes

While this may be a gluten free version of Chicken Pot Pie, you should try it even if you are not gluten sensitive. It’s a great variation on the theme. There are two things to keep in mind when you’re making this recipe. First, choose good quality, flavorful cornmeal. Spend a little more. I purchase mine at our local farmer’s market from Papa Tom (Papa Tom, phone: 225-275-1276) and they are fantastic.

Second make sure you mix the cornstarch in cold water until it’s dissolved before adding it to the pot, so that it doesn’t clump. Cornstarch is a great thickening agent, but be aware that if you heat the sauce for too long or at too high a temperature, it will lose its ability to thicken.
