Life is crazy for us right now!!! We are in the process of selling our home and buying a new home – talk about stress! We planned on staying home this rainy and cold weekend to start packing our belongings. My husband came down with a terrible cold, so I decided to make a big pot of comforting soup. I was craving Currié’s Chicken Pot Pie so I made it into a soup form without the pie crust. Quick, simple, and so delicious! It made my husband feel better and made packing a little less painful. Comfort food at its best! I froze the leftover soup in small serving sizes for my kids to take to school in their thermoses. Now, if only I could find someone to pack for us.

- 1 tbsp of butter
- 1/2 cup of sweet yellow onion, diced
- 1 cup of diced carrots
- 1 cup of diced celery
- 2 cups of diced fingerling potatoes
- 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup of broccoli florets
- 5 tbsp flour
- 5 cups of milk
- 4 cups of chicken broth

How to Make Creamy Chicken, Potato, and Veggie Soup
Melt the butter and olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, celery, and potatoes then cook for 5-6 minutes or until they begin to soften. Add the minced garlic, and stir constantly for 1 minute.
Whisk in the flour and cook for 2 minutes. Add the broth and milk then whisk until smooth. Add the broccoli florets, then season with chicken bouillon, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Let simmer (DO NOT LET IT BOIL or the milk will curdle) for 45 minutes, or until the potatoes, carrot, and celery is tender.
Add the corn, chicken, and parsley to heat, 3-5 minutes. Taste the soup and re-season if needed. Serve immediately. Serve and enjoy!
Side Note: If the soup isn’t thick enough, simply make a slurry of corn starch (about 1/4 cup and some cold chicken broth (about 1/2 cup), mix them together, and pour into the soup mixture while it’s on the stove. Stir until thick and creamy.
