I love it when classics get a makeover, like this recipe for Chicken Pot Pie Soup. It has all of the best parts of chicken pot pie; the crust, the sauce, the veggies. And while traditional pot pie is a bit more labor intensive, you get all the best flavors of a pot pie in this easy soup.
What is a pot pie?
A pot pie is traditionally a baked meat pie. The crust is usually a pie dough or in some instances a puff pastry. Pot pies are typically from North America and differ slightly from European meat pies. The filling of pot pies can vary, but the most common are chicken or turkey in a creamy sauce.
Pie Crust Croutons
In lieu of a crust, this recipe calls for pie crust croutons to serve with the soup. To make these croutons, you'll need a pre made pie crust. Roll out the pie crust and cut into squares. Place squares on a baking sheet and brush with egg wash. Top with flaky sea salt and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden.
What is in a Chicken Pot Pie Soup
Chicken Pot Pie Soup has a variety of vegetables. In this recipe I've included onion, celery, carrots and peas. If you want to make substitutions, other common vegetables for soup are green beans, beans, potatoes and parsnip.
How to make chicken pot pie soup
This soup is fairly easy to make. Begin by prepping all of your ingredients by cutting the vegetables and measuring out the ingredients. Sauté the vegetables with butter until softened then stir in the flour. Add the liquids, chicken, seasonings and bring to a simmer. Towards the end of cooking, add the peas. Serve with croutons and enjoy!
