Homestyle Chicken & Biscuits (grain and dairy-free, paleo and AIP approved)

By Camille Macres in Paleo Quick Tips Videos, Poultry, Recipes

I am a sucker for comfort food, so this recipe is very dear to my heart. I remember loving chicken pot pie as a kid, and now love it even more now that I know about the amazing health benefits of bone broth.

Bone broth protein powder is awesome because it:

  • Support joints, skin, muscles, and digestion*
  • Reduces visible signs of wrinkles & aging*
  • Boosts energy during the day*
  • Aids metabolism & promotes anabolism*
  • Mix In Protein Shakes, Smoothies and Juices
  • Dairy Free | Soy Free | Grain Free | Gluten Free

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, lard, or other AIP-friendly cooking fat
  • 1 small onion, chopped finely
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut ¼ inch thick
  • 1 celery rib, diced
  • salt
  • 2 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • ¼ cup high quality cassava flour (we love Otto's Flour
  • 2 cups bone broth or 2 scoops bone broth protein powder mixed with 2 cups water
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • Topping
  • 1 cup high quality cassava flour (we love Otto's Flour)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup lard or palm shortening (we love Fatworks)
  • ½ cup water


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet. Cook onions, carrots, and celery until soft (about 5 minutes), stirring frequently. Add chicken. Sprinkle ¼ cup cassava flour and stir to distribute and allow it to brown slightly (about 1-2 minutes).
  3. Add broth and cook until sauce is thick and bubbling, stirring constantly.
  4. Add thyme and salt to taste. Pour into 1-2 quart baking dish and set aside.
  5. In medium bowl, whisk together cassava flour, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Using two forks or a pastry blender, mix in lard or vegetable shortening until well distributed.
  7. Add water and mix with a spoon until dough forms.
  8. Roll dough out on floured surface and cut into six round biscuits (the dough will be wet, so this may be tricky - it's OK if your biscuits look a little "rustic!").
  9. Place biscuits on top of filling.
  10. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until biscuits are golden brown.
