Curry Chicken Potpie


Here, the crust goes on the top instead of the bottom, inverting the classic chicken potpie recipe, so be sure to get the one that comes as a roll instead of already in a tin.

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups chopped cauliflower

  • 1 cup frozen peas and carrots

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • cup heavy cream, divided

  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 ½ cups shredded cooked chicken or turkey

  • 1 store-bought pie crust (thawed if frozen)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, curry powder and salt and cook for 1 minute. Stir in cauliflower and peas and carrots. Sprinkle flour over the vegetables and stir to coat. Set aside 1 tablespoon cream, then stir in the remaining cream, along with broth and chicken (or turkey).

  3. Cook, stirring often, until the mixture begins to thicken, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan. Refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until cooled, about 10 minutes.

  4. Spread the filling evenly. Lay pie crust over it and fold the edges under to fit the pan. Crimp the edges with a fork. Use a sharp knife to make a few slits in the crust. Brush with the reserved 1 tablespoon cream.

  5. Bake until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
