1 – Preheat the oven to 350 0 F
2 – Place a large frying pan over medium flame and melt 1 tablespoon of butter in it. Add bacon and chicken to it and continue cooking for about 4 to 5 minutes, until completely cooked through. It will turn golden. Now, remove from the pan and set aside. Ensure it stays warm.
3 – In the same frying pan, melt the remaining butter and add carrot, celery, garlic, leeks, and thyme to it. Sauté for about 4 minutes, until these get tender.
4 – Next, add cream cheese, heavy cream, chicken stock, salt, and pepper in it and bring to a boil. Reduce the flame to a simmer setting and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes.
5 – Add the cooked bacon and chicken to the frying pan and mix thoroughly. Removethe frying pan from the heat, set aside, and get ready to make the fathead dough.
6 – Take a microwave-safe bowl and add mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in it. Microwave at a high-heat setting for about 1 minute, followed by stirring using a spatula and then again microwaving for another 30 seconds. Stir again using the spatula and add the almond flour quickly. Mix thoroughly to form a dough.
7 – Place the dough between 2 sheets or 1 sheet and 1 silicone mat and roll to a thickness of half a centimeter. Cut out circles from the dough using a knife and the top of the pot pie dish. Reuse scraps to form additional circles.
8 – Add the chicken mixture to the pots followed by sealing each using the circles cut from the dough. Create two small air pockets on each pot.
9 – Whisk an egg and brush each pot pie using it.
10 – Bake for about 20 minutes or until they turn golden.
