Filled with tender chicken and hearty vegetables in a creamy soup topped with quick-baking canned biscuits. When the days are too cold and you need to warm up from the inside out make this comforting soup.
Easier Chicken Pot Pie
We ALL love a good chicken pot pie but they can take a while to make unless you’re making a chicken version of this quick Puff Pastry Turkey Pot Pie, then it’s easy!
But traditional chicken pot pie typically involves a top and bottom crust and for some reason people expect a homemade pot pie to have a top AND bottom crust. I think that comes from having frozen pot pies from the old days.
As someone who prides herself on making amazing pie crust, I find it REALLY difficult to make anything that rivals the OLD frozen pot pies that had a full crust, top, bottom, and sides. INTACT. And perfectly baked.
So I’m personally happy to have this great recipe I can lean on to make something that TASTES like a fabulous chicken pot pie recipe but in a soup form. The more soup recipes THE BETTER!! On that note here’s a great recipe for Chili’s Potato Soup Recipe!

What Kind of Chicken to use?
For this soup recipe, I started with cooked boneless chicken breast. But if you don’t have that use leftover chicken, store-bought rotisserie chicken, or any cooked chicken light or dark will work just fine. You can use leftover turkey breast too if that’s what you have. Canned chicken is going to be too soft for this recipe so save that for another time.
What if I don’t want canned biscuits?
For this creamy chicken soup you just need something bread-y to go on top of it when serving it, canned biscuits are easy but not necessary. Use any homemade biscuits or bread you happen to have on hand.
OR use premade pie crusts and bake up little pie crust crackers to serve on top, or do the same with puff pastry. Use saltines if that’s what you have OR you can hollow out bread rolls for bread bowls.
Can I use different vegetables??
YES! You can use up ANY leftover vegetables you have on hand if that is what you have. OR use frozen mixed vegetables if you prefer that mix. I like to add chopped green beans to my classic chicken pot pie so it makes sense to add them to this soup too.
Fresh carrots, peas, and corn work, or use all frozen vegetables. Really, use what you have or like. Just like ALL my recipes, take it and make it yours!!
This soup uses Italian Seasoning which is an herb mix. If you don’t have you can a pinch of oregano, sage, thyme and rosemary or some combination of that. You can substitute the Italian Seasoning Herb mix with poultry seasoning if you want. It is similar to Italian Seasoning and I sub them for each all the time.
Check this soup for salt before serving and stir it in as desired. The soup has a lot of flavors and the broth or stock is salted so you probably won’t need it but check it just in case. Add more black pepper as desired as well.
You can ALSO add a sprig of fresh herbs on top of the soup when serving as a garnish, such as a sprig of fresh thyme or a sage leaf, or a pinch of fresh parsley. It doesn’t need it, it’s just for looks as this point.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave. Serve with bread or toast.
