This chicken pot pie soup is an easy, creamy, and rich soup that is bursting with flavor! Its packed full of vegetables, and shredded chicken, and all topped with pie crust pieces for the perfect twist on the comforting classic dish!
The temperatures are finally starting to drop a little here in Utah, but only barely. We’re getting temps in the 80s, but I want the 70s. I’m ready for that crisp fall air and the leaves to start changing colors. Actually, the trees are changing in the canyon and mountains, which is so beautiful! We went for a drive this last weekend up past Sundance and through American Fork canyon, about half of the leaves up there were starting to change into beautiful oranges and reds, and there was a little breeze and it was just the perfect evening.
I want cooler weather because I love when it finally comes and I can eat hot soup, almost every day! This chicken pot pie soup is so perfect for fall, or winter weather. But I’ll be honest I’ll eat it any time of the year it is that good!
I love how comforting, hearty, rich, and creamy chicken pot pie is. This chicken pot pie soup has those same great flavors!
This soup is creamy, and loaded with vegetables, and chicken, and all topped with flaky pie crust pieces! I used carrots, corn, peas, onions, and potatoes so that the soup is extra chunky and packed! But the vegetables in the soup can be totally customized to whatever your favorites are, leave out the peas, add green beans, whatever you want 🙂
The soup is based off of the filling in chicken pot pie, so its a great way to cut out the carbs.
I topped mine with some baked up pie crusy pieces, but if you want to totally cut the carbs with this amazing soup you can leave the pie crust off too. If you’re a fan of carbs, like me though, I mean, who isn’t really? This soup is so good with the crunchy pie pieces on top. It would also be amazing with some flakey buttery biscuits, or for a super easy solution crackers on top!
The soup is the most comforting and heartwarming. You will love warming up with a big bowlful of it on a cool day!
This soup is so easy, and all made up in one pot, in only about 30 minutes! This soup is based on my chicken pot pie filling recipe, only with a little more cream and chicken broth added in, to make it a little more, you know, soupy and liquidy.
Of course you’ll need an extra pan if you want to bake up the pie crust on top. I promise it’ll take this soup to the next level for you though, and you won’t regret the pie crust <3 You can bake up the crust while the soup is cooking and it’s all ready in literally like 25 minutes!
