Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Here's another lovely soup recipe. We really love soup around here and usually have it once a week with homemade rolls or bread. It is definitely one of my kids' favorite dinners. This soup was ranked right up there with chicken noodle and corn chowder so it was a hit. It tastes so much like chicken pot pie filling in soup form. I served it with some wheat rolls and it was seriously delicious.

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

3 tablespoons butter
1 cup chopped onion
3 stalks celery
2 large carrots, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
4 cans or about 7 cups chicken broth, divided
3-4 cups chopped cooked chicken
1 large potato, peeled & small dice
1 can corn, drained
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen green beans
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon Mrs. Dash
pepper to taste

In a large soup pot melt 3 tablespoons butter. Saute onions, celery, and carrots until cooked, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook another minute. Add 2 cans chicken broth, chicken, potatoes, and vegetables and bring to a boil. Turn down heat to medium and cover and boil 10 minutes or until potatoes are tender.

In another saucepan melt 1/2 cup butter, add flour and cook, whisking for a minute. Add heavy cream and 1 can chicken broth and whisk and cook until smooth and thickened. Just before it begins to boil add to the soup pot and stir. Thin the soup to desired consistency with the last can of chicken broth. Season with salt, chicken bouillon, onion powder, Mrs. Dash, and pepper to taste.
