Chrissy Teigen's Pot Pie Soup

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

I have been trying really hard lately to learn how to cook a wide variety of dishes. I like to think that I am actually improving quite a bit, but I still use a lot of shortcuts to make recipes easier and quicker. I have been wanting to try making some dishes more from scratch. I had seen a tweet from Chrissy Teigen recently where she was making her Pot Pie Soup recipe but she then put it into a casserole dish and covered it with Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuit mix. You can see her tweets about it here and here. It looked absolutely incredible and I knew I needed to learn how to make it ASAP!

I found her recipe on PopSugar and she also has a video making it with Kelly Ripa here.

You're going to need:

2 boxes of Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits + shredded cheddar cheese

6 cups of chicken broth (I used low sodium)
2 cups of whole milk
8 ounces of butter
2 tablespoons of minced garlic
1 cup of flour
4 teaspoons (or more) of salt (I used pink Himalayan salt)
2 teaspoons (or more) of black pepper
1 large potato cut into cubes
2 cups of cut carrots
1 cup of frozen peas
3 cups of skinless rotisserie chicken meat
1/2 cup of heavy cream

Optional (I skipped these):
1 cup pearl onions
1/4 lb thinly sliced deli ham

How to make the soup:

Once you make the soup, you put it into a large casserole dish and then mix up the Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits. I needed 2 boxes of mix to cover the entire casserole with enough biscuits. Once I had the entire soup mixture covered with biscuits, I put it into the oven at 450 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes. You can leave it in the over more/less depending on how done you want the biscuits. Once it was done baking, I covered the biscuits with the garlic butter mix it comes with.

Let it cool for a few minutes and enjoy! I thought it was incredible and definitely some of the best chicken pot pie I have ever had. This would be a great recipe to make if you need to bring a dish to a party or potluck. If you have a smaller family, I would recommend cutting the recipe in half. I ended up having to freeze half of the pot pie because it was a lot of food!
