YUMMY Gluten Free Chicken Pot Pie
This is a lush, holiday recipe, and the filling definitely reflects that. But it is gluten free, and you can use the crust for all manner of savory dishes. It also has a mixture of essential oils to create fresh, layered, BRIGHT flavors.
This makes two crusts, top and bottom. Make the filling before you make the crust, because both have to cool, but the crust shouldn't chill longer than 30 minutes or the gluten free dough gets hard to work.
