Chicken Pot-Pie Soup

I absolutely love the chicken pot pie soup from Jason's Deli. In fact, every single time I go there, this is what I order. Unfortunately it's like 10 bucks a bowl... which can add up over time. I decided to try to make my own version and this is what I came up with:

3 chicken breasts, cubed and grilled (you can buy the previously cooked chicken if you want to save some time)
3 red potatoes
1/2 a bag of frozen peas
2 carrots, diced
2 ribs celery, diced
1 large onion, diced
2 shallots, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 boxes of chicken stock
1/3 stick butter
2 tbsp flour
1/2 cup cream
Salt and pepper to taste
1 box frozen puff pastry, thawed

The first thing you do is saute all the veggies with butter (except the peas and potatoes) on medium heat and season with salt and pepper. Put them in a bowl. Next saute the chicken breast and also put in the bowl once cooked. In this same pot, melt the butter and create a roux with the flour. Once you cook the flour a bit, add the chicken stock- you may have to whisk it a bit to remove any clumps of flour. Cut the potatoes into small cubes and add to the chicken stock and allow for the potatoes to cook a bit before adding the veggies you cooked and the chicken. Combine all of the ingredients well. Allow the soup to thicken and at the very end add the peas and cream. Blend the soup well. Add salt and pepper if necessary. Lastly, cut the puff pastry into squares, and butter the tops. Add two sheet on top of each other and bake according to package directions, until the pastry is nice and flaky. Serve the soup in a bowl and top with the puff pastry square- Enjoy!

Hi Rox,

I have been waiting for your recipe since you told me about it.
While waiting for your recipe I came out with a Pot Pie Style Chicken Casserole. You give me inspiration. Thanks.
