I was never a big fan of Chicken Pot Pie growing up. I'm not sure if it was because we often bought frozen ones that used frozen vegetables and I just didn't like them or if it was because of the peas. I swear peas I just can't stand peas which is hilarious because my son gobbles them up like crazy.
In any case, as an adult I do enjoy a good Chicken Pot Pie on a cold winter night. While I still don't like peas, I'm open to eating them if they are in something and I can't really taste them. I actually made the best chicken pot pie I've ever had as a freezer meal when we were getting ready for J to be born. The crust is flaky, the filling is awesome, and the whole pie was complete comfort food.
The one thing I'm not thrilled about now is that the crust of a pot pie takes some time to make and it adds a ton of calories. So when I saw this Chicken Pot Pie Soup I was super excited to try it! It's basically the inside of the chicken pot pie thinned out and totally delicious as a soup.
I liked how quickly this soup came together. It doesn't need to simmer for too long so it can come together in under an under and still has an awesome flavor. I made a batch of my quick biscuits on the side to top the soup with which was a great idea.
This Chicken Pot Pie Soup is rich, creamy, and the ultimate comfort food in a bowl of soup! While I do think it's a little heavy on the peas, I ended up fishing them out of my bowl and my son happily ate every single one I put on his tray. My husband thought it was really flavorful and we ended up eating it for dinner one day then lunch the very next day. So if you like pot pie but don't want the hassle and calories give this soup a try!
