Chicken Potpie Soup Recipe

My grandmother hand-wrote a cookbook; she created this amazing pie crust, and I added the delicious soup for it. —Karen LeMay, Pearland, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Cook: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 5 to 6 tablespoons 2% milk
  • SOUP:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup cubed peeled potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 cup frozen petite peas
  • 1 cup frozen corn

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, mix flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add milk, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or overnight.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Using a floured 2-1/2-in. heart-shaped or round cutter, cut 18 shapes. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 425° for 8-11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 3. For soup, in a Dutch oven, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes, onion, celery and carrots; cook and stir for 5-7 minutes or until onion is tender.
  • 4. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper until blended; gradually whisk in broth. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir in remaining ingredients; heat through. Serve with pastries. Yield: 6 servings.
