Treat Tuesday:  Chicken Pot Pie Soup

*This was found on Facebook.

*I'm a lover of Chicken Pot Pie so we are going to try this soup!

  • 1 pound potatoes (yukon gold or red), diced
  • 3 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup carrots, diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 3/4 cup mushrooms, diced (button, crimini, etc.)
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a large stockpot melt butter over medium-high heat, and stir in onions, carrots and celery.
  2. Saute until veggies start to soften, about 5 minutes, then add garlic and mushrooms and saute an additional 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add flour, and stir until evenly combined with veggies, then slowly add in chicken stock and milk, then chicken, potatoes, corn, peas, Italian seasoning, pepper flakes, salt and pepper; stir well to combine.
  4. Once soup begins to simmer (not boil!) reduce heat to medium low, cover and continue to simmer 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent the soup from sticking to the bottom of pot.
  5. Once potatoes are tender, remove from heat, serve immediately, and enjoy!
