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.
Our best gluten-free chicken pot pie soup recipe!
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.
This gluten-free chicken pot pie soup with puff pastry biscuits is so so good! Sometimes I like to serve this comforting soup with Gluten-Free Cheesy Mashed Potatoes Biscuits or Gluten-Free Pull Apart Soft Rolls. I promise you, this soup is sure to make you feel cozy and warm.
