You won't miss the crust on this chicken potpie-we promise! We cut the carbs by swapping in a riced-cauliflower-and-panko topping for a thin and crispy top layer that's more nutritious than pie crust (but every bit as satisfying).

Fantastic flavor. I used a bag of frozen mixed veggies and a can of corn and it was wonderful. I will definitely make this again possibly with fresh riced cauliflower instead of frozen
