Ingredients for Chicken Pot Pie Soup
The key to making great chicken pot pie soup is to adequately season. Be sure to taste and season at the end.
- Aromatics – Onions, carrots, celery, and garlic are cooked in butter as a base for flavoring the soup.
- Mushrooms – sauteeing until golden adds a boost of flavor
- Flour – just 1/3 cup thickens the soup to make it creamy
- Chicken Stock – homemade bone broth will taste best, but storebought works.
- Potatoes – we used Yukon gold
- Chicken – light or dark meat works great
- Peas and Corn – we use frozen peas and corn since we stock them in our freezer, but canned corn will also work.
- Cream – heavy or regular whipping cream or even a light cream would work if you want a leaner soup.
- Parsley – we love it in the soup for flavor and garnish with it to add color and freshness.
How to Cook the Chicken
We love using leftover rotisserie to make Chicken pot pie soup. You can use cooked chicken breasts or a store-bought Rotisserie Chicken. If you want to cook your own chicken, our go-to recipes are:
- Oven Roasted Chicken – tender and juicy with a crisp, salty skin
- Instant Pot Whole Chicken – the fastest way to cook a chicken
How to Make Chicken Pot Pie Soup

- Add flour and saute for 1 minute
- Add broth and potatoes – season with salt and pepper and simmer until potatoes are tender.

Season to taste and serve.
Kitchen Tip: A dutch oven is one of our favorite kitchen tools for making soup. This 5 1/2 Qt Dutch Oven is one of our most used tools. It conducts heat well and can go from the stove to the oven. A good pot can last a lifetime.
Can I substitute the chicken?
You can substitute chicken with shredded leftover turkey meat for a turkey pot pie, or use diced cooked ham.
Can I make this gluten-free?
You can use corn starch instead of flour. Combine 1/2 cup cold water with 2 Tbsp corn starch. Stir that slurry in with the cream in the last 5 minutes and let it simmer and thicken the soup.
How do I thicken chicken pot pie?
You can add a slurry of corn starch in water (see gluten-free tip above), adding it to reach your desired thickness.
Chicken pot pie will keep well in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days, depending on the freshness of your chicken. The USDA recommends refrigerating cooked chicken for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot.
I hope this Chicken Pot Pie Soup will become a new favorite for you. The best part is, you don’t have to spend time making a crust or wait for it to bake in the oven like you would a classic pot pie before you can enjoy it.
