The days are growing cooler and the leaves are putting on their vibrant autumn attire. Our culinary cravings are turning toward comfort foods that warm the heart and stomach.


Among these classics, Chicken Pot Pie holds a special place. But what if you could capture all the cozy essence of a pot pie in a soul-soothing soup? Better yet, what if we topped it with flaky, golden pie crust? That's exactly what we're going to do!


The Ingredients:

For the Soup:

  • Chicken: Tender, cubed chicken thighs, ready to soak up all the flavors of the broth.

  • Vegetables: Carrots, celery, peas, and corn - the classic pot pie mélange.

  • Shallot and Garlic: These aromatic heroes bring depth to our soup.

  • Chicken Broth: The comforting foundation of our soup.

  • Butter and Flour: These create the roux that thickens our soup and gives it the texture of a luscious chicken pot pie.

  • Half & Half: The creamy magic that makes the soup rich and luscious.

  • Herbs: Thyme, parsley, and a pinch of oregano for that classic pot pie flavor.

For the Pie Crust Croutons:

  • Pie Crust: Pie crust cut into round "croutons" as a topper, brushed with egg wash to turn it into golden brown, crispy deliciousness.

Pie Crust Croutons:

  1. Cut It Up: While your soup is simmering, take your pie crust and cut it into small rounds with a biscuit cutter and brush with egg wash.

  2. Bake to Perfection: Bake the pie crust rounds until they're golden brown and irresistibly crispy.

Chicken Pot Pie Soup Recipe

Serves 6-8 in 45 minutes!

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs

  • 2 Tablespoons butter

  • 4 shallots (or 1 onion), diced

  • 2 carrots, sliced

  • 2 stalks of celery, sliced

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely diced

  • 6 cups chicken stock

  • 1 pound yellow or red potatoes, diced in 1/2" cubes

  • 1 cup frozen peas

  • 1 cup frozen corn

  • 1/2 cup half & half

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour

  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, minced

  • 1/2 Tablespoon fresh thyme, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano

  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.

  2. Brown the chicken thighs, seasoned with salt and pepper, in a large soup pot with 1 tablespoon of butter.

  3. Once browned on both sides, remove chicken thighs and dice into small cubes.

  4. Add to the same pot the shallots, carrots, and celery. Sauté 5 minutes on medium low heat until just softened.

  5. Add the second tablespoon of butter, the garlic and flour, and stir for 1 minute to create a roux.

  6. Add chicken stock, potatoes, corn, peas, diced chicken thighs, and your spices. Scrape the bottom of the pot to bring up all the delicious brown flavor you created.

  7. Simmer the soup, covered, about 20 minutes until the potatoes are soft.

  8. While the soup is simmering cut some pre-made pie crust (or homemade, go you!) with a biscuit cutter or large cookie cutter into rounds (or whatever shape you want).

  9. Brush pie crust with egg wash and bake until golden brown and crispy, about 10 minutes.

  10. Once the potatoes are soft add the half and half, simmer the soup another 5-10 minutes, taste for seasoning.

  11. Top the pot pie soup with crunchy pie crust rounds and serve!
