What is Chicken Pot Pie Soup?
This is a low carb, high protein, Chicken Pot Pie Soup that I serve with big, lovely biscuits because THIS IS WHO I AM. The creamy and light soup is a fast weeknight meal that is pretty healthful that my kids gobbled up in no time. Though, I may have bribed them with biscuits. They are cut from the same cloth as their mama.
How to Make Chicken Pot Pie Soup
Making Chicken Pot Pie Soup could not be any easier. Cook your veggies, make a roux, season, cook chicken, then add in frozen veggies and cream, all in one pot! For full details see the recipe card down below!
Saute Veggies in Butter
In a large pot, melt butter. Saute onion, celery, and carrots until tender.
Make a Roux, then add in Chicken Broth, Seasonings + Chicken tenders
Sprinkle in the flour to the melted butter and veggies mixture. Stir to absorb and cook out raw flour flavor. Pour in chicken broth and seasonings and bring to boil. Then reduce to simmer and add in raw chicken tenders.
Can I Use a Rotisserie Chicken to Save Time?
Yes! Using a precooked rotisserie chicken will shave off a few minutes and certainly make this meal even quicker.
Cover + Cook
Cover and cook until chicken is done. Remove chicken pieces to a clean plate and shred. Then add chicken back into the pot.
Stir In Frozen Veggies + Heavy Cream
Stir in frozen corn and peas and heavy cream. Reduce heat to low for another couple of minutes.
Serve with biscuits or enjoy in a bread bowl!
One of my readers added quinoa to their Chicken Pot Pie Soup to make it more filling while still maintaining all of its healthy benefits. Way to go!

I first made this for my 18 month old granddaughter. She is a very picky eater and she loved this! This is one of your many recipes that I make often!
[…] fast. Every birthday we celebrate is so trippy to me. Regardless, we had a fun little party (I made this for dinner) and we ate that chocolate cake. It was certainly delightful, though my chocolate cake […]
Looks so yummy! Needed a different chicken soup recipe that also gets veggies in! Thanks!
I have made this several times and my whole family loves it. Very easy to make and delicious!
Just had some chicken pot pie from a restaurant the other day. Craving a homemade version & this looks to do the trick!
This recipe looks perfect for a cold winter night. I can’t wait to try it.
This looks perfect for a cold winter night. Can’t wait to try it.
Can’t wait to make this. Sounds relish.
Made this a few days ago and it was a big hit! I was a bit under the weather, so it was extra comforting. Great recipe, as always.
I can’t wait to make this, it has finally cooled down enough here in AZ for some yummy winter comfort food, and I can’t wait !!
This looks so good and a great recipe to throw into the mix to stay warm during this chilling New England winter I’m having!
Could I substitute a lower fat content milk for the cream?
Try whole milk or a fat free half & half.
This looks like a great winter meal!
This is my absolute favorite soup recipe of all time! In my weekly meal planning rotation now!
I love this chicken pot pie soup. I love soups of all kind but this is a change from the regular chicken noodle soup. It is not difficult to make and makes an excellent lunch, dinner (or even a bowl for breakfast) especially when it is cold outside! Thanks for a good, used often now, recipe.
I would like to email this how would I do it?
I originally picked this because I was looking for something easy, but it was soooooooo good. I’ll definitely make it again. I added half a cup of dry quinoa in with the broth to make it a little more filling. Thanks for another amazing recipe!
Teri – I saw your question about converting this recipe to a pressure cooker – I use an Instant Pot and here’s what I’d do.
Add butter to pressure cooker and saute the onion, celery and carrots for approximately 5 minutes; add chicken tenders (cut up), broth, seasonings and frozen vegetables and cook on high pressure for 5 minutes, then do a quick release. In a small bowl, mix together flour and cream until smooth; turn pot to saute/browning, add the flour/cream combo to pot and simmer until desired consistency.
I’m going to try this soon myself! Looks fabulous. Hope this helps (and works!)
This is a reply to Tia’s comment. It wouldn’t let me reply directly to hers! Can you please tell HOW you did this in the pressure cooker? I would love to try it but don’t know how to convert recipes! Thanks!!!!!
As always, an amazing recipe! I forgot to thaw out the chicken ahead of time (errands, then sick kiddo due to food poisoning while away at the grandparents) so I converted this to a pressure cooker recipe to save time- and it was amazing!!! Definitely making this again!
Yes ma’am! Go for it! It’s so awesome, and addicting- but try it 3-4 times before you decide if you love or hate it! Even mentally I feel better! (And I teach 3year olds all day!!). Thanks again for all the awesome recipes and let me know what you think if you get to try Pure Barre! (Oh-and the best part- a littleeee less guilt when you eat a piece of bread or a cupcake!!)
Hello! I too struggle with carbs and THIGHS! Also- before I say anything else- your recipes are ALWAYS fantastic!!! I know you workout a lot- if you know of a Pure Barre studio near you- go take a class and try it out! Seriously- it’s a 55 minute workout that doesn’t seem long, but is AWESOME! I swear by it, and it actually has changed my thighs! It’s changed everything- and I live in the middle of no where, so I drive an hour and a half to it!!! Anyhow- this comment is long enough- have a great day!!!
I’ve been looking into this as an option but haven’t gotten around to actually trying a class! Now I totally want to!
O’Charley’s has a chicken pot pie soup and it’s absolutely my favorite. I cannot wait to try this soup!
I am currently eating low carb (sad face), so I am excited about this soup! It looks SO so yummy. Although if we are being honest…I’d much prefer it with those big fluffy biscuits.
As an aside, your legs are perfect, friend. xo
