My husband and I just went out for an evening run and I daresay there was a little chill in the air. Time to start making some comfort food!
Chicken Pot Pie is one of my all-time favorite foods. Isn’t it everyones? This Chicken Pot Pie Soup has all the traditional flavors of a chicken Pot Pie, but in soup form.
Tender chunks of chicken breast in a thick, creamy broth with plenty of potatoes, green beans, peas, and carrots. Yum!
And what is the best part of chicken pot pie? Well the pie crust of course! And you don’t have to sacrifice it with this soup. In fact, you can even have extra pie crust if you want. Just take a refrigerated pie crust, lay it flat on a baking sheet, and pop it in the oven until it’s lightly browned. Cut into triangles with a pizza cutter before it cools and you have delicious pie crust pieces that you can either dip into the soup or crumble on top. Of course, if you’re feeling ambitious, you can make your own pie dough.
If you’re serving more than 4 people, you may want to go ahead and bake up 2 pie crusts. Just to make sure there’s no fighting over it 🙂

I am from Pa. and here a pot pie is made from homemade thick noodles. We call yours meat pies. Both are delicious and always welcomed at my table when the days get chilly.
Love this! Pot pie and mac ‘n cheese are my all time favorite comfort foods. I love that you used a store bought crust…I honestly have NO patience for homemade pie crusts when making dinner..especially on week nights 🙂 Have a great weekend!
I made he chicken pot pie soup last night for dinner and it was awesome! I just used the recipe for my chcken pot pie and added some evaporated milk to make it “soupier” and it was a hit with my whole family 🙂 No crust chicken pot pie
Yay! I’m so glad you and your family liked it! Chicken Pot Pie really does make a great soup!
I usually don’t have any patience for making homemade crust either, plus I always make a huge mess when I make one!
Oh yum! I love Chicken Pot Pie! Perfect for fall. I am lovin’ this one!
You and me both Kristi!
Christin, you are KILLING me here!!! I just want to dive in and eat my way out!
I’ll dive in with you Ari!
I was looking for O’Charleys Chicken Harvest soup and this is as close as I came to finding it. I’m going to try it and hope it’s close to theirs. I don’t live in an area that has an O’Charleys restaurant so i’m desperate to find their recipe!!!
I can’t wait for some cooler weather to get here. Fall comfort food sounds great!
Isn’t it funny how EVERYONE seems to look forward to fall?
Chicken Pot Pie soup is such a great idea! Although one of my fave parts of chicken pot pie is the biscuits or crust on top 😉 This definitely would have less calories though, hehe. Also, it’s so cute that you and your husband go on runs together…i really need to get in shape so I can do that though I’m afraid I’ll never be able to keep up with his under 7 min/mi pace.
This looks amazing and so cozy! I think I might like this better than traditional pot pie. I’m always in for a warm soup 😉 x
I’ve been wanting to try a chicken pot pie soup recipe and this one looks delicious!
Another stroke of genius, Christin! I bet this will be perfect for the upcoming chilly nights… equally good with some fluffy biscuits.
Yes! Definitely with some fluffy biscuits Irina!
