slow cooker chicken pot pie soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Soup – low maintenance creamy winter comfort food, made from scratch!



INGREDIENTS

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper
  • half an onion, diced
  • 2–3 cloves garlic, minced
  • a sprig of fresh rosemary (sub a small pinch of dried herbs)
  • a spring of fresh thyme (sub a small pinch of dried herbs)
  • 32 oz chicken broth
  • 1 large russet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 package frozen peas and carrots (2–3 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 thawed sheet of puff pastry

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Slow Cook: Place the chicken, salt and pepper, onion, garlic, rosemary, thyme, broth, potato, and pea/carrot mix in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 3 hours. Remove the chicken, shred, and return to pot. Remove the herb sprigs and discard.
  2. Make it Creamy: Whisk the flour and cream together until smooth. Add to the slow cooker. Keep on high heat for another hour or so. For a thicker soup, whisk the cornstarch with a little bit of cold water and add it to warm soup in the slow cooker.
  3. Bake the Puff Toppers: Cut your puff pastry into triangles, circles, or hearts! Bake as directed (we did 375 for 10-15 minutes).
  4. Serve: Stir the parsley into the soup to add a little fresh color. Divide the soup among bowls and top with the puff pastry. Yummy!


NOTES

  • If you wanted to get the best possible color for your peas, I would chop up some fresh carrots and put those in right away, and just add your frozen peas at the end.
  • For best results, warm the cream before you add it to the crockpot. This helps the cornstarch activate and thicken the soup more quickly.
  • Clancy’s original recipe didn’t call for cornstarch, and you could definitely make it without. But I added it because I wanted it to be super thick and creamy like pot pie gravy filling!
