Our family loves chicken pot pie – a creamy and comforting meal on a cool day. This soup is a tasty way to get the flavours of chicken pot pie without the fuss or time to make and bake pastry or puff pastry.
Remember that soup-making is a cooking method – and that while recipes are there to guide us, recipes do offer us flexibility in how we use them. Start by sautéing some onions and carrots to build the flavour base. In this case, we thicken the soup with flour rather than cream. Then we add in vegetables. In the recipe, I used frozen peas. You could also add in potatoes, sautéed mushrooms, and other vegetables. I also added in cooked chicken. You could use cooked turkey, beef or pork, or a legume like cooked white kidney beans. You have lots of options to use the foods you have on hand.
Serve this kid-approved soup with a crusty bun and enjoy!
