rice milk takes slightly longer than cow's milk to thicken - it's simply the chemical makeup

Items you’ll need:

  • 6 gluten free pie crusts
    • (can be bought premade from one of the natural food stores or made- I will post my recipe shortly and be sure to link to it)
  • roughly 2/3rds of a cup of your favorite butter substitute
    • (we prefer earth balance, but there are numerous choices out there)
  • 1 white onion finely chopped
  • slightly less than 2/3rds of a cup of your favorite flour substitute
    • (this seems to be one of those things that everyone has an opinion on, each person has that brand that they swear by)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  •  3 cups organic chicken broth + reserve stock from prepared chicken
  • 1 cup unsweetened rice milk
    • (can be any type of milk, I use rice milk because it tastes the most like milk and doesn’t have the same after taste as nut based)
  • 3 lbs baked and shredded chicken breasts
  • roughly 4-5 cups of vegetables chopped
    • any vegetables work

 

This is really one of those recipes that you can make however you want. We have allergies from everything to gluten to corn in my family, so we keep vegetables simple- green beans, carrots, peas, and potatoes- but you can really dump any vegetables you want in here.

Process- Night Before:

With a house that is typically full of people and their accompanying noise and drama, I am a firm believer in crock pot cooking to shorten prep time. To cook the chicken for this recipe, I put 3 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breasts in the crockpot the night before along with about 1/2 an inch of water, a few tablespoons of butter substitute, salt, pepper, minced garlic, and a few pieces of onion. Put the crockpot on low and let it go overnight- by morning  you will have perfectly shredded chicken and some extra savory stock to go with it.

Process- Day of:

(1) preheat oven to 425

(2) Melt butter. Add onions and cook until the onions become translucent. Add flour and make a roux.

(3) Stir in salt, pepper, broth, chicken stock, and milk until it bubbles and becomes thick. Don’t worry if it takes longer than you would expect to thicken. Because it is not dairy milk, it will take longer to bubble, but with a little patience and a lot of whisking, it will thicken up.

(4) Add chopped vegetables and shredded chicken into the broth mixture and stir.

(6) Put top pie crusts onto bottom pie crusts and seal edges- remember to make a slit for air to escape while baking.

(7) Bake for 20 minutes. Pull out of oven and put aluminum foil around the edges. Bake for another 20 minutes- or until golden brown.
