  • 24 oz raw Chicken Breast
  • 0.67 cup Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 1 small Onions
  • 1 medium Carrots
  • 2 stalk medium (7-1/2" - 8" long) Celery
  • 0.5 tsp Fennel Seed
  • 0.5 cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 Tbsp Thick-It-Up
  • 2 tbsp Parsley
  • 8 serving Atkins Cuisine Pie Crust


Use the Atkins recipe to make 1 recipe of Atkins Cuisine Pie Crust.  Once the dough is made, wrap it in plastic and put it in the refrigerator until ready to roll out.  Roll to fit size of your pie dish if you are not using a 9-inch pie plate.
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place chicken, broth, yellow onion, carrot, celery and fennel seeds in a medium saucepot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender. Strain stock into a small saucepan. 
  3. Mix in cream; bring to a boil. Stir in thickener; cook 2 minutes until mixture thickens. Pour sauce over chicken and vegetables; stir to coat. Mix in parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 
  4. Spoon chicken mixture into a 9-inch diameter dish pie plate. Lay dough over filling; press down edges with tines of a fork to adhere to pie plate rim. 
  5. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until crust is golden and baked through (Cover edges of dough with aluminum foil if browning too quickly).  Makes 6 servings.

How to Calculate Net Carbs

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fibre and sugar alcohols (also known as polyols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fibre and sugar alcohols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
