It’s made with plenty of veggies! It is one of those easy recipes you will want to make when someone is sick or if you happen to be craving some comfort food.
To get started assemble the ingredients. Shredded chicken can be leftover chicken, shredded rotisserie chicken or you can cook up some chicken breast to shred. If you make a whole roasted chicken, this is a great recipe to make the left day with leftovers. You can make this a turkey pot pie soup by using leftover turkey instead of the chicken.
In addition to the shredded chicken, you will need chicken broth, Yukon gold potatoes, onion, carrot, mushrooms, frozen peas, celery, heavy cream, various spices and fresh parsley. You can substitute or add in other seasonal vegetables, like fresh or frozen corn or green beans. Frozen veggies can be used instead of fresh and they help to decrease the prep time, too. Dried thyme or fresh time could be used.
The potatoes are the secret ingredient in this homestyle chicken pot pie soup for making this a hearty and creamy soup. For the broth, you can make home chicken stock or use pre-made broth.
And if you’re one of those people who find it difficult to eat the right amount of vegetables – whether it’s because you loathe them or you forget – this homemade recipe is also perfect for you with the chicken and vegetables giving you essential protein, minerals, and vitamins. You will LOVE this chicken pot pie soup.
Calling all Comfort Food Lovers
I always wondered whether a pie could be transformed into a soup, and my dreams came true after I tested my theory. There’s something about the flavors, warmth, and feeling of enjoying a soup that has me feeling all giddy and excited.
I mean, we all know that we eat a whole lot more in winter, and food definitely seems more appealing. So just the thought of creating this has me drooling!
This chicken pot pie soup is quite mild in flavour, but heavenly in texture and rich with experience. If this one doesn’t become a part of my “grandma recipe cards” when I’m older, I don’t know what will.
Easy to Make Hearty Soup Recipe
Trust me when I say that this recipe is a breeze to make, and many of the ingredients can be substituted for others, so you can make the most use out of your current pantry stock.
It’s simple, quick, has fewer calories than a traditional pot pie (but retains all of the yummy benefits), and it is the best version of comfort food that I can think of.

This Soup will be an Instant Family Favourite
This recipe can use rotisserie chicken or chicken breasts, making it perfect for leftover chicken. Really, any cooked chicken will do in this ultimate comfort food. It is the perfect comfort food for the winter months.
If you’re a bit devastated about the “no-crust” part of this recipe, don’t worry. There are biscuits on top of this soup and you can cut them in any shape you like. I used hearts for these. These biscuits are made from canned buttermilk biscuits but you can do homemade biscuits, gluten free biscuits, or even cut up a sheet of puff pastry.
If you don’t want the biscuits you can omit them. If you are looking for something simpler, you can use some crackers, pastry crust strips, or even some bread to enjoy it the same way you would with a pot pie. I love dunking them in, soaking them up, and plopping them into my mouth to relish in the crust goodness.

It can be made in a dutch oven or you could even try it in your crockpot or slow cooker. In my opinion, this delicious soup is pure comfort food that the whole family will love! It is just like classic pot pie in soup form and it will make a great choice for dinner tonight.

Chicken Pot Pie Soup FAQs
Any soup leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
You can freeze a creamy soup, but I don’t recommend. Soups with dairy tend to separate. In this chicken pot pie soup with potatoes, they may go mushy.
Yes, you can make this soup both vegetarian and vegan. Use chickpeas instead of chicken as the protein. Also, substitute in a vegetarian broth and a dairy free milk (such as almond milk). Coconut milk could be used, but it will change the taste of the soup quite a bit.
Yes, to make this soup gluten free use gluten free flour instead of all purpose to thicken the soup and omit the biscuits on top or substitute them for some gluten free crackers or biscuits.
