Chicken Pot Pie Soup
I’ve been on a huge soup kick lately. Even though it’s still 90 degrees outside in So Cal, I have to at least pretend it’s cozy season. I love a good pot pie, but I never make them mostly because 1. they aren’t super healthy, especially when you consider the buttery crust and 2. I don’t feel like making crust. I thought a chicken pot pie soup sans crust sounded like a lovely idea though!
This soup has all that creamy goodness of a regular pot pie: onions, carrots, celery, potatoes, chicken, peas, and corn! The base is made with chicken stock and just a touch of half and half with some flour for thickening. This soup is a great way to satisfy a pot pie craving without the heaviness of pie crust and heavy cream is not required.
Of course though, I had to totally ruin that by making biscuits to serve with it. Honestly, the soup is delish on its own, but some nice little buttermilk biscuits or these cheddar chive biscuits (or your favorite store-bought brand) are a nice compliment to the soup!
I like to shred rotisserie chicken for this soup. If you want to make your own, I recommend cooking it in some broth so you can shred it yourself. You could also add diced chicken, but I personally prefer the tenderness of shredded chicken.
For maximum flavor, I like to add poultry seasoning which includes dried herbs like sage and thyme. Italian seasoning mix would also suffice or you can add individual dried herbs if you don’t want to buy the seasoning mix. I also add a good splash of white wine. I love the flavor it adds, but it is optional.
If you are vegetarian, you can swap the chicken broth for veggie broth and omit the chicken and add some additional potatoes and the other veggies.
This soup was so dang good, it’s honestly one of my most favorite soups I have made in a while and it will definitely be in my regular rotation! It also reheats really well so it’s great for meal prepping too!
