Chicken pot pie is a big deal in my house… it’s one of my husbands favorite dishes, and he never passes up the opportunity to have it. Truth be told, I don’t love making it on the regular. It’s a lot of work, and a lot of steps. 

I had the idea to turn it into a one pot pasta dish, and not only is it way easier, it tastes just as yummy! This version is gluten and dairy free, and so so good.

Why you’ll love this Chicken Pot Pie Pasta

  • Comfort food made easier! The flavors of chicken pot pie made way simpler.
  • A one pot meal. I love the simplicity of a one pot dish that is easy to make and easy to clean up!

The Ingredients for Chicken Pot Pie Pasta

  • Chicken Broth.
  • Coconut Milk. You’ll want to make sure this is the canned, full-fat kind. My favorite brand is Native Forest. 
  • Arrowroot Starch. You should be able to sub tapioca starch for it.
  • Avocado Oil. 
  • Yellow Onion and Garlic.
  • Mixed Vegetables, Shredded Carrots, and Peas. You can omit peas for AIP and sub broccoli or another veggie of choice.
  • Gluten-Free Fusilli Pasta. I recommend Jovial rice pasta for gluten-free or  jovial cassava pasta for paleo/AIP.
  • Ghee. You can sub butter or omit for dairy-free. 
  • Dried Thyme, Dried Sage, Dried Parsley, Salt, and Pepper.
  • Chicken. I used chicken that I cubed and sauteed in a pan, but you can use shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken, poached chicken, etc. Anything that you have on hand that is lightly seasoned will work in this recipe.
  • Parsley. For topping.

How to make Chicken Pot Pie Pasta

  • Step One. Whisk the broth, coconut milk and arrowroot starch together and set aside. 
  • Step Two. Saute the onions, garlic, and vegetables.
  • Step Three. Add the broth mixture, pasta, seasoning, and ghee and allow to simmer.

Tips & Tricks

  • The cooktime will vary depending on the type of pasta you use. This recipe is developed with Jovial brown rice pasta. However, if you use chickpea pasta or cassava pasta the cooktimes may vary. Chickpea pasta in particular cooks faster, so you have to test it as you go! 
  • Use chicken of your choice. I used chicken that I cubed and sauteed in a pan, but you can use shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken, poached chicken, etc. Anything that you have on hand that is lightly seasoned will work in this recipe.

Storage and reheating instructions

Store this pasta in the fridge for 3-4 days. I haven’t tried to freeze it, but it will most likely work! To reheat the pasta, add it to a pot and reheat on low, adding a splash of chicken broth if needed.
