Chicken Pot Pie Soup, Harrowsmith Mag

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Everyone’s favourite pot pie in a big bowl of comforting soup. Serve with yummy warm puff pastry biscuits that are so simple to make.

Chicken pot pie has long been a favourite of home cooks everywhere as a way to use up chicken dinner leftovers. And with this similarly inclined, delicious soup, a new classic is born. Maintaining many of the same principles that a traditional chicken pot pie follows, this recipe skips the casserole dish and heads right to the bowl for an elegant soup for supper or a hearty lunch.

The soup’s beautiful golden colour is achieved with a tiny bit of curry powder—just enough to add a hint of flavour. (Alternatively, the same amount of turmeric would give a similar gorgeous glow without any of the spice.) Baked separately and even ahead of time, puff pastry rounds top off this gloriously good soup.
