Comfort in a bowl, this creamy chicken pot pie soup has all of that delicious pot pie flavor in soup form. It is easy, delicious and will warm you to your core!
If you love a good creamy chicken pot pie, you are going to love this soup! It is hearty and full of the good stuff. Plus it smells amazing as it simmers on the stove. This is a great warm you up meal that is easily adapted to the ingredients you have on hand. Float a biscuit or bits of pie crust on top for the perfect pot pie finish.
To me a major part of the draw of a soup on a cold day is the warm comforting hug it gives you from the inside out. There is just something so cozy and homey about a nice bowl of hot soup.
Very few things get more cozy and homey than a homemade chicken pot pie. So, why not bring two of the coziest homiest deliciousest (sure, why not?!) things around together for the ultimate comfort food in a bowl!
This could easily be made with leftover chicken if you have it. Otherwise a couple of boneless chicken breasts or thighs will be perfect.
Then you are just a few minutes away from a hot bowl of love. The creamy broth, chunky veggies and bites of chicken are a perfect base.
This time I used biscuits as my topper and the buttery goodness adds that extra layer of special to the bowl.
My cousin Cori makes a delicious chicken pot pie soup too. She puts bits of baked pie crust on hers and that is amazing as well. No matter how you top it, just promise me you’ll make it!
What are your favorite fall and winter comfort foods? We still have a few good months of cold weather left, so there is plenty of time to enjoy!

Shred up some leftover chicken or part of a rotisserie chicken instead of using raw chicken if that’s what you have. Just toss it in with the veggies.
I sometimes use a bag of frozen mixed vegetables instead of peas and carrots. Use whatever you like best.
If you don’t have biscuits or pie crust on hand, don’t despair. The soup is great on it’s own as well.
