1 Tablespoon butter

1.5 pounds chicken breasts cut into cubes

4 ounces yellow onion, finely chopped

1/4 cup carrots, finely diced

1 clove garlic, crushed

1/2 teaspoon thyme

1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar

1 cup low sodium chicken broth

1/4 cup fresh or frozen peas, (no need to defrost)

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt, (to taste)

1/4 teaspoon black pepper (to taste)


1 cup super fine almond flour

1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds

1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 Tablespoons butter, cut into large chunks

2 Tablespoons sour cream

1 egg white


Preheat oven to 400F

Grease a 9 inch round baking pan.


Melt butter in a skillet. Add chicken and brown lightly on all sides.

Add onions and carrots to skillet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook until onions begin to brown. Stir in garlic and thyme and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Stir in vinegar and scrap up browned bits. When vinegar has almost completely evaporated, stir in broth.

Simmer until mixture thickens, about 15-20 minutes. You should be able to draw a line on the bottom of the pan and it won’t immediately fill in.

Once the broth has thickened, add heavy cream and peas. Simmer on low until thick and gravy-like. Season to taste with salt and pepper after tasting. The broth may make it salty enough.


Whisk together almond flour, flax seeds, xanthan gum, baling powder and salt.

Cut the butter in until the mixture appears mealy.

In a small bowl, whisk sour cream and the egg white together and then stir this mixture into the dry ingredients.

Gather mixture into ball and place on a piece of parchment paper dusted with almond flour.

Press or roll the dough into a circle about 8 inches in diameter.


Pour filling into prepared baking dish.

Gently place dough over filling.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until browned.

  1. Looks like a delicious recipe, Brenda Sue!

    1. Brenda Sue says:

      Try it, Dolly, and let us know how you like it! 💕

      1. Every time I see a great recipe that includes dairy ingredients, I have to experiment with non-dairy substitutes.

      2. Brenda Sue says:

        I’ve discovered that soy or almond milk works for cow’s milk almost all of the time.

      3. I use soy milk or coconut milk and sometimes almond creamer, but your recipe calls for heavy cream. I need to find something similar.

      4. Brenda Sue says:

        Hey Dolly, I edited my last comment. Auto-correct got me again! 😁 See it?

      5. No, haven’t noticed.

      6. Brenda Sue says:

        Hey, Dolly, full-fat coconut cream is supposed to sub for dairy heavy cream. I haven’t tried it but have read that it works well. To whip it, chill and pour off the liquid, put the solids into a chilled bowl and whip.

      7. Unfortunately, I have not found one with kosher certification. Still looking…

      8. Brenda Sue says:

        Wow! I’ll help you look.

      9. Thank you, darling; you are so kind!

      10. Brenda Sue says:

        Hey, Dolly! Try this link. It looks like this is Certified Kosher. https://thrivemarket.com/p/thrive-market-organic-coconut-cream?utm_source=google&utm_medium=pla_smart&utm_campaign=Shopping_Engagement_Smart_Members&utm_content=671635705006&utm_term=na&gclid=Cj0KCQiAjfvwBRCkARIsAIqSWlP70JyMUA9bPrxQ0GeJOK_4gRIbPYYS1Qv3sfP0IDc7Ft8Q03cY-8gaAj5GEALw_wcB It’s Thrive Market and the shipping cost is significant or you can buy a $25 membership and get free shipping. I think that all their products are Certified Kosher from what I’ve seen. I hope this works for you!

      11. Brenda Sue, you rock! Thank you so much for this amazing resource. Not all of their products are Kosher, but many are, and it’s great!

      12. Even better – thanks!

      13. It is Kosher, and it has 0 sugar, but yes, it is more expensive. Thank you again!

      14. I’ve seen this one at Walmart. It’s got way too much sugar, as well as all kinds of chemicals. Sugar doesn’t live in this house, as my husband is pre-diabetic.

      15. Brenda Sue says:

        Dolly, on the Walmart product, tap/click “show more” under “Product Features” and you will see that it says “Kosher”.

      16. I am overwhelmed and extremely grateful to you, dear friend, for all this effort you put into helping me! I send you many blessings!

      17. Brenda Sue says:

        Hey,. Dolly! It appears that everything on Thrive Market is Certified Kosher!

      18. Including pork and shellfish? And most wines?
