Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Oh this soup. Could I say enough good things about it? It is seriously the ultimate comfort food.

I made Chicken Pot Pie Crumble yesterday for guests and it reminded me that I’ve been wanting to try it in a soup version. Now, I don’t know which one I like better, that crumble or this soup!

It’s one of those homestyle recipes that people of all ages will enjoy!

It’s packed with fresh veggies and the potatoes make it even heartier.

And can we talk about the biscuits for a second? They are the easiest tastiest biscuits!

They include parmesan for extra flavor, they’re super tender, and they don’t require any rolling.

Just drop and bake!

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper.
  3. Stir in parmesan cheese. Add butter, and using your fingertips, rub butter into mixture until it comes together like the size of peas.
  4. Pour in milk and heavy cream and stir with a wooden spoon just until combined (batter should be lumpy and sticky).
  5. Drop about a scant 1/4 cup of batter at a time onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until golden, about 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.

  • Darlene: I made this last night, and it was good. However, it was a bit bland so I added some garlic powder and a tad more salt and pepper. This made a big difference. The biscuits were good. I think next time I will brush the tops with melted butter and place a few shreds of the cheese on top before I put them in the oven. The cheese sort of got lost in the biscuit dough.

  • Bess Hume: This looks so yummy! I would love to make it for a large crowd. I’m wondering about the lemon juice… what exactly does this do to the recipe? Why is it necessary? Thanks! September 10, 2018 at 9:03pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: It just adds a little hint of flavor. You could omit it if desired. Hope you enjoy! September 11, 2018 at 10:35am Reply

  • Rose: I loved this recipe. I did not have milk so I used Buttermilk and I utilized whipping cream for the heavy cream. I also had mashed turnip on the side instead of the Parmesan Drop Buscuit. Outstanding. March 3, 2018 at 5:40pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’ve never tried mashed turnip, I’ll have to add that to my long list of foods to try :). Glad you enjoyed this soup Rose, thanks for your review! March 3, 2018 at 8:33pm Reply
