Creamy Chicken Pot Pie Soup


I wanted this soup to be a cross between a chicken pot pie and chicken soup and I believe this recipe hits the mark.

8 servings


  • 2 (8 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 6 tablespoons salted butter

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup evaporated milk

  • 2 (32 ounce) cartons chicken broth (such as Swanson®)

  • 3 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

  • 4 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

  • 1 cube chicken bouillon

  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground black pepper

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 cup frozen peas

  • 1 cup frozen corn


  1. Put 1/2 inch of water in a large pan over medium heat; bring to a simmer, about 2 minutes. Place chicken in the simmering water, cover, and cook until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a plate and shred when cool enough to handle.

  2. Melt butter in a large pot. Add flour and stir continuously with a wooden spoon or whisk until a thick paste forms; continue cooking roux for 2 minutes. Add evaporated milk; stir until incorporated. Add chicken broth and stir until no lumps remain. Bring to a boil.

  3. Add potatoes, carrots, chicken bouillon, pepper, and salt; cook until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.

  4. Add shredded chicken and frozen peas and corn. Cook until heated through, about 5 more minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Regular milk works too (instead of evaporated) but will yield a less rich soup. Feel free to add any other vegetables and herbs you like, I just put in my favorites.

I say use the Swanson(R) broth because it honestly tastes the best. Everything else I've tried is just too bland.
