How to Make This Easy Chicken Pot Pie Soup

  • Build the flavor – In a large pot, cook carrots, celery, onion, and garlic in butter.

  • Thicken the soup – Sprinkle in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until a thick paste has formed, about 2 minutes.

  • Add the goods – Slowly stir in the chicken stock. Add the potatoes, salt, pepper, celery seed, garlic powder, and thyme.

  • Heat it up, then cool it down – Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to low. Simmer, stirring often, until the potatoes are tender and the soup begins to thicken, 15 to 20 minutes.

How to Store Leftover Chicken Pot Pie Soup + Tips

  • Storage: Soup can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge. We recommend not freezing this soup, because potatoes turn mushy when they’re reheated from frozen. Alternatively, if you leave out the potatoes and add later, you could freeze.

  • A note on shredded chicken: Rotisserie chicken is our favorite shortcut to delicious soup, but we also know that sometimes you just need to use up a chicken breast that’s been in the back of the freezer. Use our method for perfectly shredded chicken or make your own rotisserie style roast chicken. Our recipe calls for 4 cups of shredded chicken, which is the same as 3 chicken breasts, pre cooked or rotisserie.

  • Vegetarian version: Yes! Make this vegetarian by using veggie stock and add sliced mushrooms instead of chicken!

  • Can you make this gluten free? Yes! Skip the flour. Make a slurry of 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of water. After you’ve added the chicken stock, slowly stir in the slurry. If you want it thicker, create another slurry and add 1 tablespoon at a time.

    As all of your other recipes, this was delicious. Made just as written. I love how much it made too - enough that we could enjoy leftovers the next evening. This is definitely a winner.

    Thanks Emily, we are so glad you loved it!

  • Becca

    I’m back again for another plate of TMP cuisine. This dish SLAPS, or that’s what the kids are saying these days, I think. I needed something a little different than my go to meals and this recipe fit the bill perfectly. Did I add a little extra liquid for my personal preference? Sure! Was it still incredibly delicious? You bet!!! Will I be back again next week to share another ridiculous but highly rated review? More than likely :P

    We're here for it, we want to read all your reviews! Glad you loved it Becca!

  • Bonnie

    Such a delicious soup! It tastes just like eating a pot pie. Great dinner on a chilly fall or winter evening. I made it gluten free and dairy free with no problem.

    Thanks Bonnie, we are so glad you loved it!

  • Jenn

    This soup was comforting and delicious with very little effort. I used rotisserie chicken which worked great. I will definitely make this again.

    Thanks Jenn, we are so happy you loved it!
