Chrissy Teigen is famous for a lot of things: her modeling career, her marriage to John Legend, and her wildly popular book “Cravings.” Fans love her relatable and realistic approach to cooking, and those who have been following her on Instagram for some time were excited about the release of her book.
One recipe in particular seems to be a popular choice, and it’s her unique twist on an American classic: Chicken Pot Pie Soup. This dish is hearty and creamy like the classic pot pie, but instead of using a crust, the soup contains flaky and buttery crust crackers. Without having to make your own crust, it makes this recipe that much easier, but still just as impressive.
Our friends at PopSugar took a stab at the recipe, and theirs came out just as beautiful as we could have imagined—and I’m pretty sure it tasted just as great as well. Here are all the ingredients you’ll need:
For the pie crust:
2 sticks (8 ounces) cold unsalted butter, cubed
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 cup ice water
For the soup:
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 cups whole milk
2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, cut into chunks
2 tablespoons minced garlic (about 3 cloves)
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons kosher salt, plus more to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, or more to taste
1 large russet (Idaho) potato, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 pound diced carrots (2 cups)
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen pearl onions
1/4 pound deli ham, thinly sliced
1 pound skinless rotisserie chicken meat, cubed (3 cups)
1/2 cup heavy cream
You’ll never eat chicken pot pie the same way again!
