Chicken and Zucchini Pie with Sweet Potato Dough

When it comes to eat healthy, you have to learn how to substitute ingredients that are bad for you to ones that are functional.




I love finding ways to substitute wheat flour. You already know that wheat nowadays is not the wheat that used to be. Unfortunately, wheat is one of the main causes of inflammation in our body. Of course I am not saying you can't have wheat anymore. If you don't have celiac disease, you can enjoy products made with wheat once in a while, but what I meant is, if you learn alternatives ways to wheat you are opening a way of possibilities of having more nutrients to your body and reduce inflammation. ;)


Okay, no more talking. Here is the recipe!! Enjoy!!


Ingredients:


For the dough:

  • 2 cups cooked sweet potato (not too soft)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt

For the filling:

  • 2 cups shredded chicken seasoning with black pepper and salt

  • 2-3 zucchinis (I used the yellow one), sliced

  • Pepper



How to make:


Mix all the ingredients for the dough together and then using your hands, make a ball until the dough is not sticky to your hands anymore.
