FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Why is it called a pot pie?

It’s just like the name suggests. It’s thought that the name arose simply because it was a savory pie made in a pot. The pot pie goes back centuries with there being one version or another that is similar to what we know today. Some believe a version of pot pie with a simple crust goes back to the Roman Empire. It was a way to use up leftover meat with some vegetables that were on hand.

What kind of potatoes should I use?

I really like to use Yukon Gold potatoes since they are so creamy. However, you can also use Russet potatoes as well.

Can I add other vegetables?

Absolutely! You can add green beans, asparagus, pearl onions or really any vegetable you like.

Do I have to use heavy cream?

Heavy cream produces a richer and thicker soup. But you can also use half and half if you want or even milk. I do not cook with alternative milks so I can’t say how they would hold up. If you try it, please let me know!

How do you thicken chicken soup for pot pie?

You can actually make this soup into a thicker pot pie filling. To do this, you’ll just need some cornstarch and water. Mix three tablespoons of cornstarch with three tablespoons of water until combined well. Pour this into the soup. Turn the heat up to high. Stir regularly and you should see it thicken. Then you can top with a pie crust (cut some slits) and bake at 350F degrees for about 15-20 minutes until crust is golden brown.

What biscuits should I serve with chicken pot pie soup?

That depends on how much work you want to do. Some canned refrigerated biscuits will work fine. Or you could even make some DROP BISCUITS or CREAM BISCUITS.

Can you freeze chicken pot pie soup?

Yes. Let the soup cool completely. Place in a freezer container or bag and then in the freezer. This should keep for up to a month or a bit longer. Let defrost in the refrigerator overnight and you can reheat on the stovetop or microwave. This will also keep in the refrigerator, in an airtight container, for up to 3-4 days.

Ingredients needed: salted butter, carrot, celery, onion, garlic, all-purpose flour, chicken stock, potatoes, bay leaf, thyme, pepper, chicken, heavy cream, frozen peas and frozen corn.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN POT PIE SOUP:

In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the carrot, celery, and onion. Stir occasionally until softened and slightly browned, about 10 minutes. Finally, add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds more, stirring constantly. You should just start to smell the garlic. We don’t want it to burn. Garlic tastes bitter when it’s burned.

Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low and then simmer for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally to make sure nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan. Finally, add the cooked chicken, heavy cream, peas, and corn. Stir to combine. At this point, get your biscuits going in the oven.

    This soup is soooooo good! I used 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder instead of garlic cloves. I used chicken broth instead of chicken stock. I also used whole milk in place of heavy cream. The changes were made because that’s what I had on hand. I went back for seconds! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!

    Thanks for this wonderful recipe. it exceeded my expectations for the ease of making it, and the delicious results. I shredded rotisserie chicken meat and followed all of your instructions to a T.

    So delicious! Creamy and satisfying! My husband loved it! It’s like the savory goodness of chicken pot pie with the soggy crust!

    1. It’s a bit too thin for that. I have a puff pastry chicken pot pie recipe though. You can’t use puff pastry as a bottom crust though. It doesn’t set up enough and will be soggy. You need more of a pie crust.

        Oh my goodness, how good is this?!? I served for friends who came over for game night and everyone absolutely raved (and wanted the recipe!) Thank you for sharing!

    I substituted the heavy cream for 12 oz can of Cream of Chicken soup. I also substituted 1 cup of broth for 1 cup of water and a heavy teaspoon of Better than Bouillon.
    I put a 16 oz pkg of frozen peas and carrots in after the potatoes were tender and gave it about 8 minutes to meld all together.
    Turned out fabulous!
