One of my favorite things to do with a cooked Rotisserie Chicken is to turn it into some Chicken Pot Pie Soup. Just add some vegetables and Chicken Stock to a big pot with a few other ingredients and in a few minutes you will have a delicious and flavorful soup that will make everyone happy. Let me show you how easy it is.
6 Tbsp butter
1 medium yellow onion, 1 cup chopped
2 medium carrots, thinly sliced into rings
2 celery sticks, finely chopped
8 oz white or brown mushrooms, sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
6 cups chicken stock
3-4 tsp salt, (or to taste)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 lb Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/4” thick pieces.
5 cups cooked chicken, (shredded)
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup corn, (frozen or canned)
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped, plus more for garnish
Heat a dutch oven or soup pot over medium/high heat and melt in 6 Tbsp butter. Add chopped onion, chopped celery, and sliced carrots and sauté 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly golden.
Add sliced mushrooms and garlic and sauté for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until softened. Add 1/3 cup flour and stir constantly for 1 minute until golden.
Add 6 cups chicken stock, sliced potatoes, 3 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste), and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer, partially cover and cook 12-15 minutes or just until potatoes are tender.
Add shredded chicken, frozen peas, and frozen corn, 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and 1/4 cup parsley. Bring back to a simmer and continue to cook for another 5 minutes or until peas and corn are tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper and enjoy!
