Oh, chicken pot pie! One of my favorite dishes to make on a chilli day. Unfortunately I am not very patient, and most of the time I don’t want to spend it making the crust and the filling from scratch and then bake it in the oven for almost an hour. Forget that!
This “Chicken Pot Pie Soup” has all the classic flavors from Chicken Pot Pie but without the fuzz. It requires very little preparation and you don’t even have to make a roux. Everything goes in the same pan and its done in about 30 minutes. That’s my type of weeknight dinner. Easy, delicious and so comforting. This soup is perfect with a crusty baguette or even with dinner rolls. Always a hit!
