About Chef Kelley Hicks
Chef Kelley Hicks developed a love for cooking starting at the age of seven. She graduated from Le Cordon Bleu, has been featured on The Food Network, honed her skills during her time working for five-star hotel brands, and has an extensive background in catering, fine dining, and involvement in celebrity private chef services.
In 2014, Chef Kelley Hicks was diagnosed with Chrone's Disease and Chronic Kidney Disease. The life-changing diagnoses propelled her to make some serious lifestyle changes starting with her nutrition as a modified diet and elimination of certain foods is crucial for people who have these conditions. Choosing to eat more fresh produce and cooking at home really helped with her diagnosis. She went from being on 9 pills a day to now only taking one and her Chrones has been in remission for the last 3 years.
Grub Fresh Bowls & Wraps
If you are looking for healthy grab and go meal options, then Grub is the restaurant for you. Founder Philip Jones (a seasoned Smoothing King franchisee) created Grub Fresh Bowls & Wraps after years of frustration of looking for restaurants offering quick and healthy meals and not finding any. Philip Jones recruited Chef Kelley Hicks, a classically-trained chef, to help him develop the new quick-serve restaurant created for healthy, active, busy people seeking convenient and nutritious food on-the-go.
Chef Kelley Hicks knows that people love continental cuisine but still want to try new food concepts and flavors. She developed straight forward recipes for Grub Fresh Bowls & Wraps that can all be tweaked to become vegetarian by simply omitting one or two items and substituting in more vegetable options. In this way, Grub accommodates all customer dietary needs easily with its scratch-made, healthy menu.
The first Grub Fresh Bowls & Wraps is now open and is located at 876 Virginia Avenue, Suite B, Hapeville, GA 30354, convenient and close to the Atlanta airport. Founder Philip Jones and Chef Kelley Hicks are looking into opening more locations in the near future.
Favorite Winter Recipe
We asked Chef Kelley Hicks what her favorite go-to meal to fix at home when there is a chill in the air.
I love an old-fashioned comfort food recipe with a modern twist. Chicken Pot Pie became America's favorite meal in its frozen form back in the 1950's. My homemade version is a healthy variation on the classic recipe that serves as a base. You can change the vegetables, use another meat, or add in your favorite seasonings to make it your own.

Chef Kelley Hicks' Rustic Chicken Pot Pie Recipe
Yield: 2-3 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Once puff pastry has thawed out cut into 1-1.5 inch strips (or however thick you would like or – you can apply the whole pastry sheet and cut slits in it also).
Note: If you want to add any additional vegetables to your pot pie, you can add them at this point before you finish your pie in the oven. Use frozen veggies like peas, edamame, green beans, etc.
Note: This dish can also be made within your sauté pan if it is oven safe.
