Calling all Comfort Food Lovers
I always wondered whether a pie could be transformed into a soup, and my dreams came true after I tested my theory. There’s something about the flavors, warmth, and feeling of enjoying a soup that has me feeling all giddy and excited.
I mean, we all know that we eat a whole lot more in winter, and food definitely seems more appealing. So just the thought of creating this has me drooling!
This chicken pot pie soup is quite mild in flavor, but heavenly in texture and rich with experience. If this one doesn’t become a part of my “grandma recipe cards” when I’m older, I don’t know what will.
Trust me when I say that this recipe is a breeze to make, and many of the ingredients can be substituted for others, so you can make the most use out of your current pantry stock.
It’s simple, quick, has fewer calories than a traditional pot pie (but retains all of the yummy benefits), and it is the best version of comfort food that I can think of. Just thinking about it has me pondering what Netflix movie I want to watch, curled up on the sofa with a blanket and the soup to warm my cold hands.
Seriously, though, what is better than soup when you’re freezing cold?

Pure cornstarch is gluten-free as it is derived from corn, not from the gluten grains wheat, barley, or rye. However, not every brand of cornstarch is safe for those who have celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. My favourite brand of gluten free corn starch is Bob’s Red Mill.

If you’re a bit devastated about the “no-crust” part of this recipe, don’t worry. The best part is that you can use some crackers, pastry crust strips, or even some bread to enjoy it the same way you would with a pot pie. I love dunking them in, soaking them up, and plopping them into my mouth to relish in the crust goodness.
