The beauty in most soups is that you can use just about anything you want in them- whatever you have on hand. Leftover, store-bought or homemade, most of the time it really doesn’t matter because in the end you still get the same classic comforting taste of a variety of flavors and textures being blended together and cooked into a savory intoxicatingly delicious dish. You know what kind of dish I am talking about-right? The kind with thick chunks of meat, succulent bites of veggies, rich decadent sauce that makes you want to throw down your fork and just start slurping the bowl altogether. It’s called Chicken Pot Pie with Cream Cheese Pie Crust.
When it comes to soup like chicken pot pie that needs and I repeat NEEDS a crust on top, one can not just assume any old pie recipe will do. Yes, I am 100% guilty of using store-bought pie or puff pastry dough and I admit I will at some time or another still refer back to them but for now I so solemnly swear to you that any chicken pot pie or even sweet pie you may have of mine will be made using my new found favorite ingredient- Cream Cheese.
