Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Chicken Pot Pie Soup - Get all of the flavors of a classic chicken pot pie in this quick and easy to make soup your whole family will love.




I love soups of all kinds. 

I know I have mentioned that before, many many times, but I just have to say it again. I am like that sometimes. 

On this occasion, I was excited that I got the opportunity to make a soup. Kevin had been feeling a bit under the weather and I wanted to make him something that would fill him up, but hopefully be easy on his stomach. 

Wow, did that just sound like I was happy Kevin was sick.....oops!

I also got to be a bit sneaky. 

Kevin does not like, and when I say doesn't like he realllllllly doesn't like pot pies. I am still not quite sure why he has such a strong aversion to one of my childhood favorites but he does, so pot pies have been off the radar for quite some time. 

When I decided to make him soup I knew of course that it was going to be chicken soup, but I wanted a change from my regular Chicken Noodle Soup, or my Grandma's "Good For What Ails Ya" Chicken Noodle Soup. That is when I got the idea of doing a pot pie minus the pie. I hoped it would be met with the enthusiasm I was feeling.

When I told him what I was making he started to remind me that he didn't like pot pies. I assured him that the pot pie in the name was just referring to the ingredients included in the soup and that there was no pie whatsoever involved in it. He seemed a bit skeptical so I knew I had my work cut out for me.

The soup itself is very close to the soup I make for my Chicken with Herbed Dumplings with just a few changes so I was pretty sure he would enjoy it. I decided to make the little pastry hearts last minute because, well I thought they were cute.

So how was it? Kevin ate two bowls!! Yay, success!! It really was quite good and I loved having the pastry hearts because I love the crust and dipping them in the soup gave me that crust "experience".
This soup also freezes well, so if you are like me, make a double batch so you have some for a quick weeknight meal down the road.

  3. Bobbi, I love this idea! I have to tell you that the blue bowl looks just like my grandmother's dishes. We still have them in a little cabin up in northern Michigan. They have a Currier & Ives print on them. Looking at them always brings back a lot of memories!
