Pot Pie Soup #Recipe @PegCochran


This soup is cozy comfort personified!  When it's cold and blustery out it will warm you, body and soul.  The recipe comes from The Skinny-Ish Dish but I made a few alterations.  I hate dicing vegetables like carrots so I cut them in rounds.  I also omitted the celery because I didn't have any.  The soup did not suffer!  It's the perfect use for that leftover rotisserie chicken you bought.  I used regular milk but you can use unsweetened almond milk if you prefer.  We also added some croutons to ours.  The soup reheated very well for lunch the next day.  If it gets too thick, add a bit of milk to thin it to the desired consistency.  


1 tbsp olive oil

3 ribs celery, diced (about 1 cup)
1 medium yellow onion, diced
4 carrots, diced (about 1 cup)

2 tbsp minced garlic

2 tbsp butter

1/4 cup flour 

2 cups milk or unsweetened almond milk 
2 cups chicken broth
¼ tsp turmeric
½ tsp thyme -- fresh if you have it

2 cups chicken cooked and shredded/diced
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen corn
salt & pepper to taste 


Heat olive oil and add carrots, celery, and onion. Cook until the vegetables are soft and onions are translucent.

Add garlic and cook until fragrant.


Add the butter, melt, and stir vegetables until coated.


Add the flour and stir constantly for about 30 seconds. 



Add milk and chicken broth.  Stir.  Soup should thicken slightly.

Add turmeric and and thyme sprigs.




Bring soup to a boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally until         thickened.


Add peas, corn and chicken and cook on low until vegetables are heated through.


Add salt and pepper to taste.

  1. The pot pie soup looks delicious. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  2. Great idea. I like the croutons subbing for pie crust.

    1. I read that Ina Garten uses cookie cutters to cut out shapes from puff pastry for her croutons. Of course she does lol!

    2. Your recipe sounds great, Peg. And yes, LOL on using cookie cutters for croutons! That's sooo Martha, to me. ;)

  3. This will be a nice change from my usual chicken noodle soup that I make when the weather is cold here. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  4. This looks so good and sounds so yummy! I can almost smell it simmering in my kitchen. I love a good pot pie and this would fit in when time is short. It would also make a great carry-in dish for a church lunch.
