recipe notes and tips

  • To keep this recipe simple and quick, use rotisserie or leftover chicken.
  • Shredded turkey would work – perfect for using up Thanksgiving leftovers!
  • Sweat your veggies. Make sure your onion and carrots are cooked long enough, so you release their flavor.
  • Chop your ingredients into spoon sizes. Also, make sure your chicken, carrots, etc, are cut into even, bite-sized pieces, for easy eating!
  • Opt for a low sodium chicken stock, so you can control your salt levels.
  • Make sure to simmer your soup, but don’t over boil it. If you over boil your soup, the veggies will get mushy and the meat will toughen.
  • Don’t add cold milk. If your milk it too cold it can curdle.

What to serve with chicken pot pie

can i freeze this chicken pot pie soup?

This soup won’t freeze that well, because it has dairy in it. Soups that contain milk or cream don’t hold up that well in the freeze,  they take on a grainy texture and separate when defrosted and rewarmed.

Also, you can always halve the recipe if you don’t think you’ll use all of it.
