Creamy Chicken Pot Pie Soup


     To me a major part of the draw of a soup on a cold day is the warm comforting hug it gives you from the inside out.  There is just something so cozy and homey about a nice bowl of hot soup.  And very few things get more cozy and homey than a homemade chicken pot pie.  So, why not bring two of the coziest homiest deliciousiest (sure, why not?!) things around together for the ultimate comfort food in a bowl!




     This could easily be made with leftover chicken if you have it.  Otherwise a couple of boneless chicken breasts or thighs will be perfect.  Then you are just a few minutes away from a hot bowl of love.  The creamy broth, chunky veggies and bites of chicken are a perfect base.  This time I used biscuits as my topper and the buttery goodness adds that extra layer of special to the bowl.  My cousin Cori makes a delicious chicken pot pie soup too.  She puts bits of baked off pie crust on hers and that is amazing as well.  No matter how you top it, just promise me you'll make it!



     I hope you have been enjoying #SoupWeek as much as I have.  I can't wait to give these soups a try.  Which ones caught your eye?  We still have a few good months of cold weather left, so there is plenty of time to enjoy!

  4. Stir in peas.
  5. Mix cornstarch into cold milk and then stir milk mixture and thyme into soup. Bring to a simmer to thicken.
  6. Serve with warm biscuits or bits of baked pie crust.

      3. Yum! This sounds good and rib-stickingly warm. It is going to be really cold this weekend and I think this will top the menu! I had a container of crescents in the fridge and rather than unroll them I sliced them and baked them in circles. Those would be good with this too. Sort of like the topper for a pot pie. Have a great weekend.

        Wishes for tasty dishes,
        Linda

      8. Hi Carlee, I think I may have mentioned it several times before, but I do enjoy a nice soup on a cold winters day. I don't think I have ever heard of pot pie soup before (I lead a sheltered life!) and this sounds tasty. I wonder if it would work with dumplings?

        1. It would work perfectly as a base for dumplings! You could probably leave a bit of the starch out of the broth as dumplings (mine anyway) tend to thicken the broth a bit on their own. Now I am super hungry for some chicken and dumplings. That is one of my favorite comfort foods... I really need to get a recipe on the blog, but I make them differently every time so I am never sure what version to share!

      11. Carlee, you know that I am a huge fan of soup to warm me up from the inside out. And this one is not only a soup to warm me up but it is one that brings back fond memories from childhood. For some reason when I was a kid I used to love pot pies, the cheap banquet style. Now that I'm all grown-up this is perfect! And it's gluten free. I am so excited. Pinning this I am going to make it very soon. Thanks for sharing.

        1. We used to always have those pot pies when my parents would go out and we had a sitter or had to fend for ourselves. They were fun and have good memories for me too! Now I'm spoiled by homemade pot pies. Either way, the soup is a winner! Thank you, Nikki!
