traditional chicken pot pie soup recipe,

I am keeping this a traditional chicken pot pie soup recipe by using leftover cooked chicken, onions, celery, carrots, potatoes, corn, peas, and mushrooms cooked in a thick, buttery, creamy soup. 

To make this chicken pot pie soup extra special, I topped the soup with a gluten-free made from scratch puff pastry biscuit.

So let’s get started!

I like to start with the soup. Keeping this a gluten-free chicken pot pie soup recipe, I made it without flour.

The traditional chicken pot pie recipe is always made with a roux. Roux is what makes the soup thick. However, when following the gluten-free diet, classic roux was not an option.

This thick and creamy soup recipe is so simple to make. Start with sauteing the onions, celery and carrots in butter. This will intensify the soup flavour.

Then, stir in the potatoes, mushrooms, seasoning and broth and cook until the potatoes become tender. I used bay leaf and thyme to season the soup.

Once the potatoes are tender, add the remaining ingredients and cook until the soup starts to thicken. This takes only a few more minutes. The soup is ready now.

the best way to thicken gluten-free cream soups,

Not all starches are created equal. That’s right. If you use the wrong starch, the soup may become a bowl of starchy liquid or a slimy stew.

I used tapioca starch in this chicken pot pie soup recipe because of its neutral flavour and excellent thickening power. 

Cornstarch and arrowroot work well in stir fry sauce or fruit filling because of its transparent shimmer. But I find the two starches make the soup a bit slimy looking.

Is gluten-free flour blend a good thickener for soups?

In my experience, it does not work very well for thickening soups. The blend is made up of various grains and may contain xanthan gum. However, when used in gluten-free baking, it helps the cake, muffins and bread rise.

To prevent lumps, always stir the starch into a cool liquid before adding it to the hot liquid.

let’s move on to the gluten-free puff pastry biscuits,

These light and puffy biscuits are made with only four ingredients plus seasoning. The recipe may sound complicated, but it is soo easy. 

First heat milk with butter, then stir in flour. Once cooled using an electric mixer, whisk in the eggs one at a time.

Then, drop mounds of dough on a baking sheet and bake—nothing to it.

I wanted to be a little more creative with this puff pastry recipe. So, I added a few small cubes of cheese to the dough. 

The gluten-free biscuits turned out exceptional, buttery, cheesy, airy and light, with every bite melting in your mouth.

    Instructions

  • SOUP
  • Heat butter in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add onions, celery and carrots. Cook until the onions start to soften, stirring as needed
  • Stir in potatoes, mushrooms, bay leaf, thyme, salt and pepper until coated with the veggies. Add chicken broth, bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender. About 10 minutes
  • Whisk the cream with tapioca flour and add to the soup with the remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat until the soup starts to thicken. About 3 - 5 minutes. If the soup is too thick, add extra broth or cream to desired consistency. Taste and season with salt as needed
  • PUFF PASTRY BISCUITS
  • Preheat oven to 400 F Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Heat the milk and butter in a saucepan over medium heat until simmering but not boiling 
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and quickly stir in flour. Return to the heat and cook over medium heat for 2 - 3 minutes until the dough is smooth and pulls away from the saucepan, forming a ball. Stirring frequently
  • Transfer dough to the bowl of an electric mixer, and let cool 5 minutes. Beat with the paddle attachment to cool it down
  • Add 1 egg at a time and continue beating until each egg is completely incorporated before adding another. Stir in cheese if using
  • Using a cookie scoop or 2 spoons, drop dough onto the prepared pan 1 inch apart. The mounds should be 1 1/2 inch round about 1 1/2 inch high. Brush tops with egg wash
  • Bake at 400 F for 5 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 375 F and continue baking for 20 - 22 minutes, until puffed and golden brown. Turn off the oven and crack the door open, allowing the biscuits to cool inside the oven for 20 minutes before removing them and letting them cool completely on a wire rack. Do not open the oven during baking!
  • Ladle hot soup into bowls and top with biscuits.
