Keto Comfort Foods

Maria Emmerich’s newest keto cookbook, Keto Comfort Foods, releases on May 2, 2017, and I got an advanced copy from my publisher! So my son and I decided to do our weekly Keto Chat LIVE Facebook video of us making the Chicken Pot Pies from the cookbook, and you can watch it here.

Here is the recipe from the cookbook:

Chicken Pot Pies

prep time:10 minutes, plus 1 hour to chill dough, if needed
cook time:15 minutes   yield:4 servings



1¾ cups shredded mozzarella cheese

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 large egg, beaten

¾ cup blanched almond flour

¹⁄₈ teaspoon fine sea salt


2 tablespoons unsalted butter

¼ cup diced celery

¼ cup diced onions

¼ teaspoon minced fresh oregano

¼ teaspoon minced fresh thyme

¼ teaspoon fine sea salt

3 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into ¼-inch pieces

4 ounces cream cheese (½ cup), softened

½ cup chicken bone broth, homemade (page 356) or store-bought

for garnish

Fresh thyme sprigs



Preheat the oven to 425°F.

To make the dough, place the mozzarella and butter in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, until the cheese is entirely melted. Stir well. Add the egg and combine well using a hand mixer. Add the almond flour and salt and combine well with the mixer. Use your hands and work it like a traditional dough, kneading for about 3 minutes. (Note: If the dough is too sticky, chill it in the refrigerator for an hour or overnight.)

While the dough is chilling, make the filling: Melt the butter in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the celery, onions, herbs, and salt and cook until the veggies are soft, about 4 minutes. Add the chicken and sauté until cooked through, about 4 more minutes. Add the cream cheese and stir until well combined. While stirring, slowly pour in the broth. Divide among four 14-ounce oven-safe bowls or ramekins.

Grease a piece of parchment paper. Place one-quarter of the dough on the greased parchment and pat it out with your hands to form a small circle, slightly larger than the diameter of the bowls or ramekins you’re using. Repeat with the remaining dough. Place a circle of dough on top of each filled bowl or ramekin. Seal each pie closed by crimping the dough around the edge with your fingers.

Place the bowls on a rimmed baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the pies are golden brown and the dough is fully cooked. Serve the pies garnished with fresh thyme.

Store extras in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat on a rimmed baking sheet in a preheated 350°F oven for 5 minutes or until warmed through.
