Chicken “pot Pie” With Crunchy Brown Rice Crust


1 tablespoon expeller-pressed canola oil, plus more for greasing
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 pound button mushrooms, sliced
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, divided
1 large carrot, chopped
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
1 small yellow onion, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1 1/2 cup low-sodium gluten-free chicken broth
1 cup whole milk
1 cup cooked brown rice or brown and wild rice blend
1/4 cup shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 cup frozen peas


Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly oil a 9-inch pie dish and set aside.

Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink, 4 to 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, 1 teaspoon of the thyme, carrots, celery, onions, salt and pepper and cook until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add broth and milk, stir well and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until very thick, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine rice, cheese, paprika, remaining 1 teaspoon thyme, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

Stir peas into chicken mixture then season with salt and pepper and transfer to prepared dish. Scatter rice mixture evenly over the top then arrange dish on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake until bubbly and crust is crisp, about 30 minutes.
