Today was raining and drizzling ALL day. Totally called for some comforting soup. This soup totally feels like eating a pot pie…well yes…minus the yummy crust. If a soup could be creamy and healthy all at the same time this is it. Next time I’m making biscuits.
Check out this crazy carrot. It looks like it has little legs!
Chicken Pot Pie Soup
- 1 rotisserie chicken, torn into pieces
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 whole leeks, washed and thinly sliced
- 1 cup sliced baby carrots (and more for munching)
- 3 ribs celery, diced
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
- 2 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1 cup half and half
- 4 cups of chicken stock
- 1 cup of frozen corn
- 1 cup of frozen peas
- Additional salt and pepper to taste
Add the olive oil to a large stock pot, then toss in your leek, carrot, celery and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Stir, and cook for about 5 minutes. Add in the rosemary and thyme, stir and cook for about a minute. Add the flour, and stir again, making sure to get all of the vegetables coated in the flour. Cook for a couple of minutes, then add in the half and half. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the mixture begins to thicken. Add in the chicken stock, corn and peas and season with a pinch or two of salt and cracked black pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes. At this point the soup is ready! To make it a little more decadent serve with cornbread or biscuits!!
