Original Recipe from Whole Foods

This is a delicious gluten-free and healthy alternative to traditional chicken pot pie. The Parmesan melts into the rice to create a tasty crust, but omit the cheese, if you like.


Are you making this? 
1 tablespoon vegetable oil; plus more for greasing
1 tablespoon Butter
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts; cut into 1-inch pieces
0.25 pound button mushrooms; sliced
2 teaspoons chopped thyme; divided
1 large carrot; chopped
1 rib celery; thinly sliced
1 small yellow onion; chopped
1 Salt and pepper to taste
0.25 cup brown rice flour
7 cups low-sodium gluten-free chicken broth
1 cup whole milk
1 cup cooked brown rice or brown and wild rice blend
0.25 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
0.5 teaspoon sweet paprika
0.5 cup frozen peas

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie dish with oil; set aside.

2. Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, 1 teaspoon of the thyme, carrots, celery, onions, salt and pepper and cook until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add broth and milk, stir well and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until very thick, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine rice, cheese, paprika, remaining 1 teaspoon thyme, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

3. Stir peas into chicken mixture then season with salt and pepper and transfer to prepared dish. Scatter rice mixture evenly over the top then arrange dish on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake until bubbly and crust is crisp, about 30 minutes.
