Eat All of Your Feelings With This Recipe for (Slightly) Healthier Chicken Pot Pie

Recipe and photos by Launie Kettler

Hello, chicken pot pie! How do we love you? Let us count the ways, because there are a lot of reasons we’d do just that, and we’re not ashamed to shout them from the rooftops!

It’s savory.

It’s comforting.

It warms us to our toes.

It’s both rustic and elegant.

We. Love. Chicken. Pot. Pie.

And in this version, we made it a scootch easier and healthier by switching out whole milk for oat milk and adding loads more veggies with a little less meat and a little less crust. Because, while the meat and crust are delicious, aren’t the veggies the real stars? And what better way to eat your veggies (and your feelings) than in some comforting chicken pot pie?

Sweet carrots, spunky onions, savory celery, gentle and peppery parsnips, all swim in a creamy sauce with cooked chicken and then they’re enveloped in a top crust loaded with herbs.

Now that, folks, is something to write home about (or post on social media, whatever floats your boat)!

So round up your ingredients, grab your F.N. Sharp Utility Knife or Chef’s Knife, get that cutting board ready and let’s make some homemade chicken pot pie!
