I found a variation of this recipe online and just had to try it, I love the kind of chicken pie they make them in England and this is the soup version. It can be frozen, so you have extra for the cold winter evenings or if you don’t want to cook all day in the kitchen. It takes a little time to create, but is definitely worth the effort. What takes up most of the shopping list is the amount of spices in the soup.
