Chicken Pot Pie Soup Ingredients:

  • Chicken Breasts
  • Vegetables– all of the pot pie classics: frozen peas, frozen corn, diced red onion, shredded carrots, and sliced celery.
  • Chicken Broth
  • Chicken Bouillon Cube-bouillon cubes are small cubes made of dehydrated stock or broth, in this case chicken stock. Although they are small, they are packed with flavor and perfect for enhancing chicken based soups.
  • Minced Garlic-always.
  • Spices & Herbs-bay leaf, fresh thyme, ground nutmeg, salt & pepper.
  • Heavy Cream
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • Cornstarch– to thicken soup

Substitutions & Variations:

  • If you prefer dark meat– 6-8 skinless boneless chicken thighs can be used instead. Cube once cooked.
  • Try different veggies– asparagus, leeks, and red potatoes all work fantastic with pot pie flavors.
  • Not a mushroom fan? Cream of chicken can be used instead of cream of mushroom.

How to Make Chicken Pot Pie Soup:

  • Slow-Cook Chicken & Vegetables– in a slow cooker add chicken breasts, frozen peas, frozen corn, shredded carrots, diced red onion, sliced celery, minced garlic, chicken bouillon cubes, bay leaf, fresh thyme sprigs, ground nutmeg, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Pour chicken broth over everything and set crock-pot to low for 4-6 hours.
  • Shred Chicken– use a meat thermometer to make sure chicken is cooked through (an internal temperature of at least 165F). If cooked through, remove breasts from pot and use two forks to shred chicken breasts: hold a fork in each hand and use them to pull meat apart.
  • Finish– remove bay leaf & fresh thyme from pot. Add shredded chicken back in along with gnocchi, 1/2 cup heavy cream, and cream of mushroom soup. In a small bowl, pour remaining 1/4 cup heavy cream. Add cornstarch to cream and whisk until a paste forms. Stir paste into hot soup and set crock-pot to cook for another 30 minutes, stirring well halfway through. Add salt & pepper to taste and serve soup with biscuits.

Chicken Pot Pie Soup Leftovers:

  • Store leftover crock-pot soup in an airtight container. If store properly, soup will last up to 2-3 days in the refrigerator.
  • To reheat soup, pour into a saucepan and simmer over low heat. Stir until warmed through.

Tips & Recipe Notes:

  • For crispy gnocchi, pan fry them! Instead of letting them cook in the pot, melt 1 tbsp of butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add gnocchi to pan in a single layer, cover with lid, and let steam for 3 minutes. Remove lid, stir, and continue to fry gnocchi 3-4 minutes until crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Add to soup just before serving.
  • Avoid over-cooking chicken. Chicken can become tough and rubbery if left in the slow cooker for too long. Use a meat thermometer to guarantee an internal temperature of at least 165F.
  • Chicken can be cubed instead of shredded.
