I have a confession to make: I never liked chicken pot pie. I had an aversion to both pie crusts and peas, which traditional chicken pot pie has in abundance. But I love the idea of chicken pot pie: A hearty blend of poultry, vegetables, and gravy served up in a convenient little package. It sounds like the perfect comfort food, right? So, enter this autoimmune protocol-friendly Chicken Pot Pie Soup! This is a recipe from my e-book 28 Days of One-Pot AIP, which features simple, one-pot AIP recipes for easy prep and easy cleanup. This recipe uses asparagus in lieu of peas and swaps the crust for a bowl for a dish that’s just as comforting and even more convenient. It isn’t as thick and creamy as traditional chicken pot pie because I didn’t feel like adding thickeners, but if you prefer a creamier texture, by all means add a few tablespoons of arrowroot starch before bringing the pot to a boil and stir constantly until it dissolves. If you eat peas, you can use them instead of the asparagus (about two cups), but broccoli also works well!
