Gluten-free Chicken-optional Pot Pie rice cooker recipe (dairy, gluten, egg, refined sugar, and soy free)

This is so easy and yummy! My oldest daughter is a huge chicken pot pie lover and thinks this is fabulous! She says that the pie crust isn't even necessary because the filling is so good.

Filling recipe:
http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=867218


My changes:
I use organic creamy potato leek soup instead of regular cream of potato soup. I've also done it with my own organic potatoes chopped small and organic coconut milk.

The last time I made this I added 1/3 cup gluten-free all purpose flour mix for thickening.

I've also made this with frozen organic veggie blend that contains carrots, corn, green beans, and green peas. If you do that just use an equal number of cups as listed in the recipe for the individual veggies.

I don't use green pepper in mine since my kids aren't fans but add a little minced garlic.

I don't use a lot of black pepper; I just use salt and pepper to taste.

I use organic coconut oil instead of olive oil.

To make this vegan, leave out the chicken and use vegetable broth. It's great with just veggies.

For the crust use this recipe if you need gluten-free (use a large pie pan since you will have lots of filling available):

Vegan, raw Key Lime Pie recipe (dairy, gluten, egg, refined sugar, and soy free)

Vegan, raw Lemon Cream Pie recipe (dairy, gluten, egg, refined sugar, and soy free)


So yummy! I only made half the recipe since it was my first time trying this. If you make the whole thing use a springform pan.

You can substitute one of the nuts in the crust with pecans or walnuts. I used pecans instead of macadamia nuts.

I used small pitted dates instead of medjool dates.
I used the 3rd of these powdered sugar substitutes:

Stevia

If you want to use stevia as a powdered sugar substitute, here are three versions to choose from.
  • Take 2 packets of stevia with 1 cup of arrowroot or potato starch and process them in a food processor.
  • Alternatively, you can process 4 packets of stevia with 1 cup of arrowroot or potato starch and 1 cup of whey protein powder.
  • Finally, you can process 4 packets of stevia with 1 cup of arrowroot or potato starch and 1 cup of powdered milk.
