Cheddar soup is one of my favorites, but it’s a bit too rich for my husband’s tastes.  So, by changing the ingredients a little, I came up with a variation of potpie we both enjoy.  If I’m in a hurry and don’t have the time this takes to bake, I’ll leave off the crust, add extra milk and serve it as a chowder.

Cheddar Chicken Potpie Recipe

Cheddar Chicken Potpie

Crust:   1 cup flour

½ tsp. salt

5 Tbsp. cold butter, cubed

3 Tbsp. cold water

Filling:   1 ½ cups chicken broth

2 cups peeled cubed potatoes

1 cup sliced carrots

½ cup sliced celery

½ cup chopped onion

¼ cup flour

1 ½ cups milk

2 cups (8 oz.) shredded sharp cheddar cheese

4 cups cubed cooked chicken

¼ tsp. poultry seasoning

Salt and pepper to taste

For crust, in a small bowl, combine flour and salt.  Cut butter in flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Gradually add the water, mixing gently with a fork.  Gather into a ball.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least 30 minutes.

For filling, place broth in a Dutch oven; bring to a boil.  Add vegetables.  Reduce heat; simmer 10-15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

In a small bowl, combine flour and milk; stir into broth mixture.  Cook and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened and bubbly.  Stir in cheese, chicken, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper.  Heat until cheese melts.  Spoon into a 10 inch (2 ½ to 3 qt.) casserole.  Set aside

On a lightly floured surface, roll crust to fit top of casserole, trimming edges as necessary.  Place on casserole over filling; seal edges.  Make several slits in center of crust for steam to escape.

Bake at 425 F. for 40 minutes or until golden brown.             6 servings
