Chicken Pot Pie Soup recipe: a delicious soup that is on your table in 30 minutes! #pillsburypiecrust

I’m always looking for easy dinner recipe ideas. I bought a package of Pillsbury pie crusts and had every intention of making some individual pot pies.

But then my kids requested broccoli cheese soup. So I thought, what if I combined the two?

To make life easier, whenever I cook chicken for dinner, I always bake up a few extra plain chicken breast. I stick them in a ziploc freezer bag and put them in the freezer to save for a quick dinner fix. If you don’t have any cooked chicken on hand, you can bake a couple breasts, grill them, boil them or go even more simple by using a Rotisserie chicken.

You then cook some butter in a skillet with onion, celery and broccoli. This makes your house smell amazing. I love the smell of onions cooking, is that strange?

Add some flour to thicken, then add your broth, cream, milk, chicken and seasonings. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes until heated thoroughly. While your soup is cooking, prepare the pie crust by cutting it into strips (I used a fancy pastry cutter, but a pizza wheel works too). Bake pie crust strips in a 450 degree oven for about 6-8 minutes, until browned. This dinner takes about 30 minutes, yet tastes like you’ve been cooking all day!

    I made this last night except I put it all in the crock-pot (adding cream at the end), added carrots, and omitted the flour and butter (I added a bit of cornstarch) and it was phenomenal! I bet it’s delicious, even better, following the recipe, but I am prego and get tired at the end of the day so I use my crock-pot whenever possible!

    I made this for dinner and seriously by the time dinner gets here I don’t think we will have anything more to eat. It’s soooooo good. I’d like it to have a little more soup part… So I may add some more milk.. It’s been sitting ready for hours so it’s a little thick but the flavor is unbelievable!!!

    Very nice. I added some cauliflower with the broccoli. Would cut the chicken into smaller pieces or shred then add next time. 9/10. This would make a lovely filling for pies if liquid was thick enough. I did add an extra ¼ cup of stock to our soup as it was quite thick when cooked. Would definitely make again. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Why does most of the recipes call for Kosher Salt? I never have Kosher Salt in the house. Your soups are delicious and simple to make. You do a great job. Thanks.
