This chicken pot pie soup is thick, creamy, and loaded with vegetables and tender pieces of chicken. It’s made in one pot and topped off with biscuits or pastry, making it the perfect cold weather comfort food.
- Dutch oven
- Wooden spoon
- Large glass bowl or measuring cup
- 2 Tbsp canola oil
- 2 large carrots
- 1 rib celery, finely chopped
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 tsp garlic, minced
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp dried parsley
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 3 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 3/4 lb Little Potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 1/2 cup frozen corn
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
Add oil to a large Dutch oven or soup pot over medium heat. Add carrots, celery, and onion and cook on medium heat, stirring often, until onions are translucent, and vegetables are slightly softened.
Stir in garlic, salt, parsley, thyme, and pepper and cook one minute.
Add broth and scrape the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to ensure any browned bits are removed.
Stir in potatoes and nestle chicken breast down in the liquid. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until potatoes are tender.
Meanwhile, make your roux and thicken your milk. In a large glass bowl or measuring cup, melt the butter in the microwave on high for 30 to 45 seconds at a time.
Stir in flour until completely absorbed.
Whisk in the milk until smooth, using a scraper to get into the edges of the cup and ensure all of the flour has been whisked into the milk.
Microwave on high in 45 second intervals, whisking each time, until thickened (about four times). Be sure to keep an eye on it in the microwave, as it will bubble up—use a bowl or cup with lots of room left at the top.
When potatoes are tender and chicken is cooked through (about 10 to 15 minutes), remove chicken breast and shred. Stir in the frozen peas, frozen corn, and the thickened milk along with the shredded chicken.
Let soup simmer on medium-low heat until heated through, then serve with biscuits.
