🔪 How to Make Chicken Pot Pie Soup
Sauté until tender, then add in the garlic and sauté for about 15 seconds.
Tip: Make sure the garlic doesn't brown, or it will become bitter and you'll have to start all over.
Cut the cooked chicken into bite size pieces.
Add in the chicken, peas, carrots, green beans, lemon thyme, remaining salt and chicken stock.
Bring to a simmer and cook partially covered for 15 minutes.
Tip: Cooking with the lid offset helps to reduce the soup slightly.
Once it’s well combined with no lumps, slowly whisk in the xanthan gum, then pour the mixture into the soup and stir.
Tip: This method works better at preventing lumps, than adding the mascarpone straight into the soup.
Continue cooking uncovered for another 5 minutes or until thickened to your liking, then serve.
How Long Does Chicken Pot Pie Soup Last in the Fridge?
Leftovers will stay fresh in a sealed, airtight container in the fridge for few days. Make sure you allow the soup to cool completely before transferring it to the fridge.
Can Chicken Pot Pie Soup Be Frozen?
If you’re using a freezer bag, squeeze out as much air as you can, then lay in on a flat surface in the freezer. Frozen soup will stay fresh for about 6 months as long as it has been sealed properly.

Chicken Soup Variations and Substitutions
- Veggies: Swap out or add to the veggies in this recipe. Mushrooms and zucchini are both great options.
- Chicken: I used boneless skinless chicken breasts, but you can use thighs if that’s what you have on hand. You can also use rotisserie chicken for a short cut option. Another awesome option is to make this soup with leftover Turkey Breast!
- Herbs: I went with a mild herb flavor for this recipe, but if you like a more robust herby flavor, you can add a little rosemary or bay leaves. You can also use your favorite dried Italian herb blend instead of fresh herbs.
- Broth: Keeping homemade broth in the freezer is a great way to ensure you always have some on hand for soup and other recipes. If you don’t have time to make your own, you can use a good quality store-bought bone broth instead.
- Cheese: Mascarpone has a mild flavor and creamy texture that adds body to this soup. If you can’t find it, cream cheese is a tangier substitute that will work well.
Can I Make This Recipe in a Slow Cooker?
You sure can. It works best in the slow cooker if your model has a sauté function like to one below. Otherwise, you will need to cook the chicken and sauté the celery, garlic and onions in the olive oil and butter in a skillet first.
Once you have everything added to the slow cooker, allow it to simmer for about 4 hours on low or until the carrots are nice and tender.
I use the Hamilton Beach 6 Quart Slow Cooker and absolutely love it. It's very lightweight and is programmable. But here's my favorite part... you can use the insert on your stovetop to sear before slow cooking.
