PROJECT RECIPE: Chicken Pot Pie Soup

*I finally got the pics to upload. Enjoy!

I love pot pie. Who doesn’t? Seriously, show me one person who doesn’t.

I found this recipe for Chicken Pot Pie Soup on the Chez Us blog, and I was sold. Except instead of using chicken, I had something else in mind for this recipe.

Remember last spring when the Hubs killed that turkey? I had about a pound of diced thigh and leg meat in the freezer that was begging to be used in soup or somthig. That big tom was a little tough. Wild turkey seems to be a little drier and tougher than Butterball. Soup is the perfect way to use it.

PROJECT RECIPE verdict: Keeper! The Hubs and I agreed that this soup is pretty much just like eating pot pie. Except it gets to the table quicker. This was a great weeknight meal. The only thing that would have made this better is if it would have been soup weather. It is still a little warm for soup around here.

How I changed the recipe: I used turkey instead of chicken, obviously. Also, I added some extra spices: thyme and a little garlic.
