Chicken Pot Pie Soup with Pie Crust Crackers

February 5, 2012 by Bake Up, Little Suzy

Welcome to the obligatory Valentine’s Day post!

pie crust crackers
This soup recipe is not fancy or expensive. It doesn’t have lobster or truffles or oysters or chocolate. And other than the adorable heart-shaped pie crust crackers, it’s entirely unsuitable for an elegant, romantic Valentine’s Day dinner.

Chicken Pot Pie Soup
I made it for Handsome Greg’s lunch, so that he could be embarrassed/warm and fuzzy when he nuked it in front of the dude-bros at the office.

Honestly, I think the dude-bros likely had a serious case of lunch envy when Handsome Greg brought in these lovely leftovers. The comfort casserole-turned-soup is rich and creamy, with tender, flaky pie crust crackers. I just want to give it a hug. With my teeth.

Ingredients
  • 2 chicken breasts, with skin and bones
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 medium russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • ½ small white onion, diced (1/4 cup)
  • 2 stalks celery (1/2 cup), diced
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon white pepper
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 1½ pounds frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 store-bought pie crust
Instructions
Roast the Chicken
  1. Preheat oven 350ºF degrees.
  2. On a baking sheet fitted with a cooling rack, drizzle and coat the chicken breasts with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper on both sides, and bake uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through.
  3. Reserve the drippings from the bottom of the pan.
  4. When the chicken is cool enough to touch, separate the meat from the skin and bones, chop the meat, and freeze the skin and bones for making stock another day.
Make the Soup
  1. Add diced potatoes to a large bowl filled with cold water. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the drippings from the roasted chicken over medium heat. Add the onions and celery and cook until translucent, about 6-7 minutes.
  3. Stir in the flour and whisk until it forms a thick paste. Add the Italian seasoning, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, and pepper; cook for 2 more minutes.
  4. Whisk the stock into the vegetables and bring it up to a boil. Drain the potatoes. Add the potatoes and the chopped chicken to the broth over low heat. Stir in the frozen vegetables. Cover the pan and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in milk and kosher salt and cook for 5 more minutes.
Bake the Pie Crust Crackers
  1. Preheat the oven as directed on the pie crust package.
  2. Cut the pie crust into rounds (or hearts!) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake according to package instructions, shaving off a couple minutes, until the pie crust crackers are golden brown. Ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with the pie crust.

    I used to make a recipe similar to this, but stopped for one reason or another. I love chicken pot pie, but always just made it like a soup with a pre-baked crust on top. But for the soup I used canned cream of chicken soup — which is on the not-buying list. I probably stopped making it because I didn’t have the energy to figure out how to make it from scratch, and there were other things to take its place.

    I like the looks of your recipe. I may have to give it a try!
