My family’s favorite is chicken pot pie.  My neighbor used to get so annoyed when he would be invited for a birthday dinner and the kids would choose that; he would say, ” Can’t you pick something else for God’s sake?”   This was last night’s request from the kids coming home for dinner.  The Recipe Redux theme is “gut healthy” this month.  So, I added loads of gut healthy prebiotics  (leeks, garlic, mushrooms, onions, whole wheat flour), with healthy fiber to aid in digestion.

     Prebiotics are foods that gut bacteria feed on, which produce fermentation by-products, which benefit our health as they help to fight off all the bad bacteria.  There is some butter here, however I cut it in half for both the gravy and the crust and it still tastes amazing.  

Gut Healthy Chicken Pie

A healthy gut is happy gut. Give your gut what it needs, prebiotics which this chicken pie is loaded with!
