Creamy Chicken Pot Pie Soup is all the comforting goodness that makes up the inside of chicken pot pie without all the fuss of actually making it into a pie. With chunks of succulent roasted chicken, crisp vegetables, and a rich, creamy sauce, you'll close your eyes and savor every spoonful until you empty the bowl...and then you'll go back for more!

June Dairy Month

Did you know that June is National Dairy Month? It's Undeniably Dairy true! In honor of National Dairy Month, the Sunday Supper Tastemakers have teamed up with the Florida Dairy Farmers to bring you our best recipes made with milk, so you can add milk to your diet throughout the day in the form of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and, of course, dessert (our favorite part!).

Milk is a Versatile Ingredient

Milk is not just for the cereal bowl! It is a versatile ingredient that can be used in your daily cooking routine from breakfast to dessert and everything in between. My Creamy Chicken Pot Pie Soup recipe has a smooth creamy texture because I use whole milk to keep it a simple, fresh, and delicious recipe! In addition to this creamy soup recipes, I use milk to my Pumpkin Spice Donuts, creamy pasta recipes, Bechamel Sauce, Slow Cooker Oatmeal, Pastry Cream, and so much more. I love the versatility of milk!

I like to serve this creamy soup with homemade buttermilk biscuits, but I hear it's great over rice too. Don (my hubs) especially likes it over rice. If you read my blog, you know we are not compatible when it comes to rice. He LOVES it and just about every meal he says "you know what this would be good with....", and I always answer, "ummmm....let me guess, RICE (with an eye roll, of course) haha. Too bad for him I'm not as big a fan of the fluffy white grains. It's not really the taste, it's the consistency (that's a nod to ZombieLand).

Recipe Prep Tips

  • Start the roasted chicken breasts first.
  • While the chicken is roasting in the oven, make the soup on the stove top in a stock pot.
  • As always, taste as you go and adjust seasonings to your liking by adding a little bit at a time until it's just right.
  • Use an instant read thermometer to check the doneness of the chicken.
  • By the time the chicken is cooled, the soup should be thick enough to add the chunks of roasted chicken and serve.
  • Try to resist the urge to snack on the roasted chicken breasts while they are cooling. It's a struggle for me.
  • I recommend cutting up the crispy, roasted chicken skin and adding it right into the soup with the succulent pieces of chicken. It will enhance the comforting roasted flavor that really sets this soup apart from the rest.
  • If you want to serve this soup with buttermilk biscuits, the order of making it would be to get the chicken roasting in the oven, start the soup simmering on the stove top, and then make the biscuit dough. Pop the biscuits in the oven when you take the chicken out. By the time the biscuits are done, the chicken will have rested and be ready to go in the soup. Quick and efficient. Just the way I like to cook!


Serving suggestions

  • Serve in a bowl with a spoon is a simple way to enjoy this soup and perfectly pleasing.
  • Although this soup can stand alone with just a spoon, it is even better if you take the time to make some buttermilk biscuits. Put a biscuit in the bowl and spoon the soup right on top of it. So good! My favorite way to enjoy it.
  • Or be like Don and serve it over rice or even pasta. It's a versatile recipe you can enjoy however you like.

    1. Hi Denise, I use a very basic recipe. You can find it on food(dot)com. It's called Southern Buttermilk Biscuits. Biscuits are tricky & I'm still trying to perfect my own recipe, but that recipe usually turns out great. The key to great biscuits is to not handle the dough too much and for a better rise be sure to only press down when making rounds. Don't twist the cutter as it seals the edges making for shorter biscuits. I've even started just cutting straight down with a knife and making square biscuits. works great! I hope that helps. Have a super week ~Marion

  3. Fabulous recipe. I cheated a tad and used a rotisserie chicken to cut down some time on a week night. Still fabulous. Thank you for sharing.
