Chicken Pot Pie Soup (GF, DF)

Chicken Pot Pie Soup
The snow has finally arrived in New England, and with it our soup season has begun!  This easy dish tastes just like the inside of a chicken pot pie, and can be served with your favorite gluten-free biscuits to mimic the top crust of the pie (here's a nice recipe).  The timing of this recipe works perfectly so you can put together the biscuits while the chicken is poaching.

This soup is both gluten-free and dairy-free, using rice milk and coconut oil to give it a chowdery, buttery flavor.  The addition of GF flour to the broth thickens it a bit to simulate the white sauce in pot pie.  You can also add arrowroot starch for an even thicker broth.   The potatoes are important too, to give it the heft that a winter soup needs!

I made my soup with fresh chicken, and poached it before I added it to the soup, but if you have leftover chicken this is a perfect way to use it up.

Stay warm!

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

1 package boneless chicken
1/2 cup coconut oil (divided)
1 small onion
1 large package frozen veggies (peas, corn, carrots, green beans)
3 small potatoes, diced (I left the peel on)
6 cups chicken broth
2 cups rice milk
1/2 cup GF flour (I used sorghum)
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp thyme
salt and pepper to taste

First, poach the chicken by simmering in a medium pot of water until cooked through (about 15 minutes).  Drain and shred or chop into bite-sized pieces.  Set aside.

Chop onion and saute in 1 Tbsp coconut oil in a large stockpot over medium heat.  Add chicken broth, frozen veggies and potatoes and boil until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, stir flour into rice milk to break up lumps.  Transfer mixture to soup pot, and add cooked chicken, the rest of the coconut oil, parsley and seasonings.  Heat through, stirring, about 3 minutes.  Serves 8.

Note:  If you would like your soup to be a little thicker, you can add some arrowroot starch to the flour/rice milk mixture as well.
