Hearty Chicken Pot Pie Soup


Posted on October 29, 2009

This is a creamy, chunky soup with flavors of classic chicken pot pie. It is a hearty soup and makes a satisfying main meal. 

IngredientsHearty Chicken Pot Pie Soup

2 tbsp olive oil

2 leeks, trimmed and chopped

1 large onion, chopped

2 celery stalks, diced

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1/3 cup all purpose flour

8 cups homemade chicken stock

2 medium carrots, peeled and cut

1/2 lb small white mushrooms, quartered

6 ounces frozen pearl onions

2 large russet potatoes, cleaned and cubed

1 cup frozen peas

2 large chicken breasts, boneless, cut into thin strips

3 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Salt and black pepper

1 cup half and half or milk for a lighter version

Dumplings

3/4 cup flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

Black ground pepper

2 tbsp butter, chilled

1 large egg

1 tbsp milk

1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped 

Directions

1. Heat oil in a skillet; add leeks, onions, celery and garlic. Cook for about 7 min or until tender. Stir in flour and cook for about 2 min taking care not to brown the flour.

2. Remove from heat and slowly add 6 cups of chicken stock. Add carrots, mushrooms, pearl onions, potatoes, parsley and chicken. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 30 min or until all the vegetables and chicken are tender.

3. Separately, in another pan, bring the remaining 2 cup of chicken stock and 1 cup of water to a boil.

4. To make dumplings: In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. With a pastry blender of just a fork cut butter into flour until it resembles coarse meal. In a small bowl whisk together egg, milk and parsley and stir into the flour mixture until a dough is formed.

5. Using a greased tsp gently place rounded teaspoons of dough into the simmering broth and water. Cook for about 7 min or until well-risen and cooked through.

6. Stir the half half and the frozen peas into the chicken soup and adjust the thickness of soup adding the remaining liquid from dumplings. Finally, add cooked dumplings to soup and over medium heat return to almost boiling.

Bon Appétit!
