To me a major part of the draw of a soup on a cold day is the warm comforting hug it gives you from the inside out. There is just something so cozy and homey about a nice bowl of hot soup. And very few things get more cozy and homey than a homemade chicken pot pie. So, why not bring two of the coziest homiest deliciousiest (sure, why not?!) things around together for the ultimate comfort food in a bowl!
This could easily be made with leftover chicken if you have it. Otherwise a couple of boneless chicken breasts or thighs will be perfect. Then you are just a few minutes away from a hot bowl of love. The creamy broth, chunky veggies and bites of chicken are a perfect base. This time I used biscuits as my topper and the buttery goodness adds that extra layer of special to the bowl. My cousin Cori makes a delicious chicken pot pie soup too. She puts bits of baked off pie crust on hers and that is amazing as well. No matter how you top it, just promise me you'll make it!
I hope you have been enjoying #SoupWeek as much as I have. I can't wait to give these soups a try. Which ones caught your eye? We still have a few good months of cold weather left, so there is plenty of time to enjoy!
Creamy Chicken Pot Pie Soup
1 T olive oil
2 boneless skinless chicken thighs (or breasts)
salt and pepper
1/2 cup onion, diced
1/2 tsp garlic
1 tsp thyme
5 cups chicken stock
2 potatoes, cubed
1 cup carrots, chopped
1 cup frozen peas
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/4 cup cornstarch
biscuits or pie crust for serving
- In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper and brown chicken on both sides. It doesn't need to be cooked through, but it should get a nice color on the outside.
- Cut the chicken into cubes and return to pot with onions and garlic. Add chicken stock, being sure to scrape up all the good bits off the bottom of the pan.
- Add the potatoes and carrots and bring to a boil. Drop heat to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
- Stir in peas.
- Mix cornstarch into cold milk and then stir milk mixture into soup. Bring to a simmer to thicken.
- Serve with warm biscuits or bits of baked pie crust.
