Dearest eaters, readers and Pinterest pinners,
Welcome to another edition of Tasty Tuesday that’s doing double duty (that’s a lot of Ds) as my Pinterest Blog Hop Challenge post for the month of October. You are going to want to pin this recipe yourself, gals, because it is that good. I think you’ll find you have most of the ingredients on hand so this soup can be mixed together and thrown in the crock pot. Ha…I wanted to type hot tub! Which might work, too!
Get out your crock pot and meet me in the kitchen. Let’s get dinner started.
Let’s Get Cooking: Crock Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup
You might remember me talking about the upcoming soup swap blog hop I’m hosting on 10.23.2018. A week from today. If you haven’t already, you need to mark your calendars for that post. About a dozen gals will be sharing their favorite fall soup recipe with you and me. I can’t wait!
In preparation for that post, I have been trying new soup recipes and revisiting some old favorites. This crock pot chicken pot pie soup was in the running for consideration for the soup swap. It is quick, hearty and delicious. Sure to hit the spot on these crispy-cool autumn evenings. It was originally shared on Pinterest by Tiffany at Creme de la Crumb. I pinned it on my Souper Salads Pinterest board here.
- 2 medium-large boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used 4-5 frozen chicken tenders)
- 1 cup frozen peas (or 1 can, drained)
- 1 cup frozen yellow corn (or 1 can, drained)
- 1 cup chopped carrots (omitted these for PC but will add next time)
- 1 celery stalk, chopped
- 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
- 1 small yellow or white onion, diced
- 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon chicken bouillon (or 1 chicken bouillon cube)
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of poultry seasoning (original recipe didn’t call for this)
- 1 teaspoon of thyme (original recipe didn’t call for this either)
- 3-4 cups heavy cream (I used 2 cans fat-free cream of chicken soup)
- 1 tube refrigerated biscuit dough (I used a small can of 5 biscuits)
I divided this recipe in two for just us which was approximately four very generous servings.
- In your crock pot, mix together chicken, peas, corn, carrots, celery, potatoes, onions, cream cheese.
- Pour in chicken broth.
- Add chicken bouillon, garlic powder and poultry seasoning, stir to mix.
- There didn’t seem to be much liquid so I added about a half cup water. Maybe if I had left it alone, I wouldn’t have had to thicken it with cornstarch! Hmmm.
- Cover and cook on low for 6 hours until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are soft.
- About 30 minutes before serving, remove chicken from crock pot to shred, then return to the soup.
- Stir in heavy cream or cream of chicken soup and salt and pepper to taste.
- Bake biscuits according to package’s instructions.
- Serve bowls of soup topped with a biscuit.
When I ladled up the soup, it was a little thin for my liking. I measured out about a half cup of broth and added about 1 tablespoon of corn starch, mixing until blended. Poured that back into the crock pot and allowed the soup to cook on high for about 20 minutes longer. The soup thickened to more of the chowder-like consistency I prefer.
I omitted the carrots because I didn’t have any but also because PC really doesn’t care for them much. However, the soup would have been ‘prettier’ and more colorful had I gone to the store to buy some and chopped them so finely that my Prince would hardly have noticed them.
For that matter, PC doesn’t like peas at all but didn’t mention them in this soup. So the carrots might have gone totally unnoticed, too.
Just pretend there are little dots of orange in these bowls of soup.
Isn’t this a little better?
More fallish, I think. We had the leftover soup several nights later and it was even better. It would probably freeze well, too. And if your crew isn’t opposed to veggies, you could sub in all kinds. Maybe some green beans? Squash or zucchini? Mmm, that would really fall it up!
Would love to invite you to try this soup and let me know what you think. Also, dig out your own fav soup recipe and have it handy to share with us on next Tuesday, 10.23.2018. Plan to share it in a comment or on my Facebook page, here.

Thank you for coming by today. We are still in Arizona playing baseball/watching baseball being played. Lost our first game of series this morning but rallied for an overtime win in this afternoon’s game. Hoping we’ll have 2 wins tomorrow.
My blog has been acting funky lately and my signature has completely disappeared. Not sure where it went! Will wait til we are home to try to figure out that mystery. Until then just imagine my name under my ‘hugs and kisses’.
Hugs and kisses,
