I have a confession to make: I never liked chicken pot pie. I had an aversion to both pie crusts and peas, which traditional chicken pot pie has in abundance. But I love the idea of chicken pot pie: A hearty blend of poultry, vegetables, and gravy served up in a convenient little package. It sounds like the perfect comfort food, right? So, enter this autoimmune protocol-friendly Chicken Pot Pie Soup! This is a recipe from my e-book 28 Days of One-Pot AIP, which features simple, one-pot AIP recipes for easy prep and easy cleanup. This recipe uses asparagus in lieu of peas and swaps the crust for a bowl for a dish that’s just as comforting and even more convenient. It isn’t as thick and creamy as traditional chicken pot pie because I didn’t feel like adding thickeners, but if you prefer a creamier texture, by all means add a few tablespoons of arrowroot starch before bringing the pot to a boil and stir constantly until it dissolves. If you eat peas, you can use them instead of the asparagus (about two cups), but broccoli also works well!
Are you suffering from adrenal fatigue?
Are You Tired and Wired? is one of my favorite books on adrenal fatigue with chronic illness. It’s a comprehensive yet straightforward examination of the factors at work and home that contribute to chronic adrenal dysfunction and the diet, lifestyle adjustments, and emotional reprogramming that can help fix it. A healthcare provider with a focus on women’s health, Marcelle Pick will help you identify what type of adrenal dysfunction you suffer from and provide an easy-to-follow, science-based program to help you restore balance to your life. I found it extremely helpful with my own chronic fatigue!
