2/3 cup frozen peas (optional)
2-3 cups chicken stock or bone broth
2 tbsp. arrowroot flour

Low Carb Flours
The above recipe uses 'low carb flour' and if you are just starting a low carb diet/lifestyle you may feel confused with which low carb flours to use. You may never have used any of them before and how to use them properly can be daunting. Low carb flours do not behave like wheat flour, and how to use them in your old regular high carb recipes is a common question. Of course you may also be interested, or want to know more about them. If that is the case then Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' site has a very good guide, and you can read it here

Dear reader, you will find a variety of articles and recipe ideas within this blog, and not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter. 

All the best Jan

Wonderful. The crust is usually the killer with tons of calories, too. This looks beautiful and could be adapted for vegetarians, too.

Very interesting and it looks really tasty. I never thought of putting bacon in chicken pot pie but I bet it would give a wonderful slightly saltiness.

Hello there … it may be worth trying an alternative low carb pie crust like this one made using coconut flour

Happy Baking
