A healthy twist on a classic comfort food, we switched up the traditional veggies for some new players. The combo of warm buttery pastry and rich gravy is perfect for a cozy winter or autumn dinner.


  • 3-4 Tbs olive oil, divided

  • 3 cups broccoli crowns, chopped

  • 1.5 cups shredded store-bought rotisserie chicken

  • 1 large (or 2 medium) sweet potatoes, diced

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 2 leeks, rinsed and diced

  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups chicken broth

  • 1/3 cup oat flour

  • 1-2 Tbs fresh thyme

  • 1-2 Tbs fresh parsley

  • 1 store-bought pie crust (We like Immaculate Baking Company!)


  • Preheat over to 400F
  • Cut up the broccoli crowns into bite sized pieces and place on baking sheet. Drizzle with 1-2 Tbsp. of olive oil and salt. Bake for 20 mins or until lightly browned and beginning to crisp.
  • Chop the sweet potato and leeks, and mince the garlic.
  • Add 1 tsp of oil to the skillet, add leeks and cook until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes.
  • Add sweet potatoes, garlic, salt and pepper, cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Add almond milk to skillet.
  • In a small bowl add flour to chicken broth and stir until completely combined, then add mixture to skillet.
  • Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until a thickened gravy forms, if gravy becomes too thick, add additional chicken stock 1 Tbsp at a time to thin out to desired consistency.
  • Uncover and stir in thyme, parsley, and baked broccoli
  • Reduce oven heat to 350
  • Scatter chicken evenly along the bottom of a 2″ deep pie dish that has been oiled with cooking spray, then pour over the skillet mixture. Smooth out and top with crust.
  • Lightly brush the crust with olive oil
  • Bake for 30 minutes, until crust is light golden brown, and the gravy is bubbling.
  • Let cool for 5-10 minutes


  • *You may want to place the pie dish on a parchment lined cookie sheet, to catch any of the gravy that spills over.
