This series: I've made a lot of soup in the past few years. I've come to know what my family will eat and what they won't. Why don't you put my experience to work for you?! Hope you find something tasty! (I think you will!)
10 Days of Family Friendly Soups :: Day 2
We first had this soup when it was given to us by the lovely Mary through one of my annual frozen meal exchanges. My children would have licked the soup pot clean had I not restrained them. I don't usually care for traditional chicken pot pie, and even I loved this soup. This year, there was no chicken pot pie soup at the exchange, so I made several batches myself. No one complained :)
Chicken Pot Pie Soup
(original recipe from Chocolate Moosey - I have made made a very few changes to "beef" it up a little bit)
(the recipe written here is doubled, suitable for a large family dinner)
4 c. shredded cooked chicken
4 T. butter
1 c. chopped onion
2 -3 c. carrots, peeled and sliced into coins
1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
6 c. chicken broth
2 c. heavy cream or whole milk
1 1/2 - 2 c. potatoes, peeled and diced into cubes
1 1/2 c. frozen peas
In a large pot, melt the butter.
Add onion and carrots. Cook over medium heat until the onions are soft.
Stir in flour, salt, and garlic powder, stirring continuously to form a roux.
Gradually stir in the broth and milk.
Bring to a boil and add potatoes.
Reduce heat and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes or until potatoes are soft.
Add the peace and chicken.
Carla, from Chocolate Moosey, includes a recipe for cheddar biscuits with the soup recipe. I encourage you to go check it out, as I'm sure homemade biscuits are delicious!
I, however, have not made them yet, and have taken it easy on myself by serving this soup with Bisquick biscuits. I made their standard biscuit recipe and just added lots of cheddar cheese and chives, and a little bit of garlic.
This soup freezes well. Just thaw, reheat, and eat!
