When I was young there was this unspoken system. In place for hurts, sickness and sorrow. A system that never needed an explanation. Someone down the road went through something. Perhaps a death in the family, or horrible illness that confined them to stay in. Even for young moms recovering from the birth of their new baby. We knew what to do. Get in the kitchen. Bake up some muffins, toss a salad and cook a chicken pot pie. Food is healing on so many levels.
Today I’m bringing over grain free chicken pot pie. Not to my neighbor, but to you. I mean, according to Mr. Rogers we are all neighbors, so I’m counting this. I know, it’s just the recipe, but you need to start somewhere. I’m guessing if you took a moment to think about it, you know someone who could really use it. Maybe it’s deeper than physical pain or illness. Perhaps there’s a mom down the road who’s kids just finished school and could use a hug and a chicken pot pie to get her through the first week of summer break. Maybe your co-worker is overloaded and has no time for a home-cooked meal right now.
Is it possible you’re the one who needs this recipe? Quite possibly even for the sake of having a classic dish from your childhood that is now dairy free, grain free and unbelievably delicious.
I personally hadn’t had a chicken pot pie in close to 4 years. I’ve partnered with Otto’s Cassava Flour to create a completely grain free dinner. Now, I’m so excited to have this recipe on hand that I’ve made it 3 times in the last month. I made it for the kids while Thad and I went on a date night. I made it for a family night and for a game night with our friends.
No turning back now, this dish is a hit. Cook it up for the people in your life and let me know what you think!
