Ingredients
  • 2 chicken breasts cooked and shredded
  • 2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
  • 2 large carrots peeled and diced
  • 2 stalks celery peeled and diced
  • 1/2 small onion diced
  • 4 cups spinach fresh
  • 6 oz mushrooms chopped
  • 1 tbsp thyme fresh
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 paleo pie crust
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line individual ramekins with a thin layer of pie crust, reserving some for the topping.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the carrots, celery, onion, mushrooms, and thyme to the pot. Stir in half a teaspoon of salt and cover. Cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer. Stir in the spinach and cook for 5 minutes.

  3. Place the arrowroot powder in a small bowl and whisk with one tablespoon of water to prevent clumping. Add the arrowroot and the shredded chicken into the saucepan and stir. Reduce the heat and cook until the mixture reaches a creamy texture for the filling. Remove from heat.

  4. Divide the filling among the ramekins. Top with extra crumbled pie crust. Bake for 13-15 minutes, until bubbling and the top is golden brown. Serve immediately.
