Poor Man's Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Submitted by: LOXASHA

Introduction

A sort of soup that has large, square flour noodles, potatoes and chicken. An old recipe handed down in my family for generations, called Poor Man's Pot Pie, since it's made with kitchen remnants. Originally a Pennsylvania Dutch recipe, I believe. A sort of soup that has large, square flour noodles, potatoes and chicken.

Ingredients

    Crisco, 8 tbsp
    Flour, white, 5 cup
    Water
    Potato, raw, 5 medium
    Chicken Thigh, 2 thigh, bone and skin removed

Directions

Cook chicken in water, in slow cooker throughout the day, until the meat can be easily torn from the bone. Set aside while you boil water.

Add chicken stock made from the chicken you cooked earlier from the crock along with enough water to fill a large pot. Boil. Put cut-up potatoes in now.

Mix flour and Crisco in a large bowl with your hands. Make sure all lumps are eliminated. Add a little salt now, so you don't have to dump it on your finished product later.

Take your flour/Crisco mix and mix it in with enough water to make it into a dough-like substance. Take small hunks of it and roll it with a rolling pin into flat sheets, then cut into squares with a pizza cutter or knife.

Slowly add your flour squares, one at a time, to this stock, and stir occasionally to make sure they're not sticking. Add your chicken, torn up into pieces, as well.

Cook for about 25-30 minutes, until squares and potatoes are tender and soft. Add pepper and celery leaves or bits to taste.

Let sit for a few minutes (it will be VERY hot, you might burn your tongue!) and serve.

Serving Size: Makes about 6 bowls or plates full.
