"This recipe is easy and can be doubled, tripled, whatever! It is a quick alternative to pot pie as there is no crust to deal with (I always go for the center anyways)"

"This soup was just what my daughter was craving. She saw a coupon for Sweet Tomatoes restaurant that showed their Chicken Pot Pie Soup and wanted it so I did a quick search and found this. My method was just a bit different than listed but I kept the ingredients the same for the most part. I cooked the chicken breasts in the crock pot all day and made chicken broth at the same time. I removed some of the broth from crock pot and boiled my potatoes and carrots uncovered in the broth until there was only about 1 cup of the broth left. I added the cubed chicken and the peas, melted the butter in a measuring cup and stirred the flour into the melted butter until it was smooth. Then I added the butter/flour mixture slowly into the pan and then the milk, brought the soup to a simmer and in about 5 minutes it was thick and absolutely delicious! I served the soup with biscuits and it was a big hit in my house!"
"Thanks for this great recipe, starnover! Just had a big bowl for dinner on a snowy evening. Paired it with a spinach salad and Honey Oat Bread (#4218). YUM! I made these modifications: used one glove of garlic instead of garlic powder, used 2 C half & half and 2 C chicken broth, white whole wheat flour. Will make again and again."
"So yummy! I made it for my mom and I, and we ate the whole thing with leftovers for later. Awesome in crunchy bread bowls. I switched the peas for lima beans though, since lima beans are full of protein, and I took it easy on the margarine and flour. Overall, really good!"
"This was a great and easy recipe. I used frozen veggies in a bag to cut my prep time, and a little more flour to thicken it up. It was super delicious. Best recipe for pot pie soup."
"This is the perfect winter food. I also add more vegetables and less potatoes. I have made it with skim milk as well. I generally quadruple the recipe and freeze it for a quick winter meal. I also use #82958 Perfect Pie Crust. I just roll it out & bake it and then put some of the broken pieces on top of the individual bowls of soup. That crust is so easy & so flaky. It really is perfect. Just be sure to use butter flavored Crisco and no substitutes."
"I loved this thick creamy soup. It is perfect served over biscuits in a bowl. Next time I think I'll add sauteed mushrooms and a 1/4 tsp poultry seasoning and some chopped celery leaves for variety. I plan to make ahead as flavor develops overnight."
"i made a big pot of this soup for dinner tonight, and my whole family loved it, this is a very easy soup to make, the only thing i did different was to add a couple cloves of garlic. Thanks for another great recipe homegirl."
"Very good recipe...a hit with our family! I bought bread bowls at Panera to serve it in...kids loved it! I used a bag of frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, corn, green beans), which saved time peeling and cutting carrots (microwave the veg. first). Also used minced garlic instead of garlic powder, and instead of 4c whole milk, I used 1c 1% milk, 1c half & half and 2c chicken stock. Still turned out nice and thick (just be sure to add the liquids slowly and stir constantly). Now I just need to figure out how to spice it up a bit. It was a little too bland. More pepper maybe? Will definitely make again. Thanks!"
"This recipe is a keeper! I used the same vegetables except I switched celery for green pepper and switched white sweet potatoes for regular, subbed ground white pepper for black pepper, added bouquet garni and poultry seasoning, swapped a can of coconut milk for regular milk and used chicken base (4 cups, with 1 cup vegetable stock). Also used potato flour to thicken with although since it was so thick I had to add additional water maybe next time I'll start with 1/4 cup then go from there - tastes great! Pre-cooking the vegetables and chicken greatly speeds up the cooking."
"We have made this recipe a few times now and it is super yummy every time! I have a horrible dairy allergy and was able to substitute soy milk and Earth's Balance "butter" spread. Tastes just like I want it to :) Only thing we have done is added some Italian seasoning to give it a little kick. mmmmm! Can't wait to make this again!"
"Excellent flavor and presentation. What a good fit for someone wanting winter comfort food. The only change I made was added a little poultry seasoning and used instant mashed potatoes instead of flour to thicken it. I baked small rounds of pie crust so the family could add to top of each bowl if they wanted. It's a keeper and I want to double it next time so hopefully I will be able to freeze enough for a quick meal when I can't think of anything to fix.
Thanks for sharing!!"
"Very good and easy to do. Instead of thickening with flour, I used 2 mashed potatoes. Thanks for sharing."
"I made this for my dear hubby tonight and he LOVED it. Said it was just like chicken pot pie :-). I've been wanting to make him chicken pot pie, but haven't found a recipe that rang a bell with me yet. This sure was a great recipe! I used 4 tbsp stick butter--used carrots, corn & potatoes--but peas would be nice, too! I used 3 cups skim milk & 1 cup fat free half & half--was nervous that all that fat free milk wouldn't be "thick & creamy" enough! Also added 1/2 tsp seasoning salt, 1/4 tsp poultry seas & white AND black pepper. 1/3 cup flour worked fine for me! I didn't have biscuits to serve with this but will make sure to try that next time. Thank you SO much for sharing!!"
"Mmmmm, this is REALLY good stuff! It was a major snow storm here today and we really needed some comfort food, this was perfect. I realized when making it that I didn't have any chicken boullion so I used a can of fat free chicken broth and cut the milk down to 2 cups. I also threw in a bunch of extra veggies and served it in sourdough bread bowls, it came out fabulous! Thank you Homegirl!"
"Terrific! A real keeper! My daughters *loved* this. I served it over biscuits. The only change I made was to use chopped green beans instead of peas as one of my daughters doesn't like peas. I used 2% milk. Thank you, homegirl. My girls said they prefer this to chicken pot pie itself."
"Wonderful, wonderful warm comfort food. I did one of my skinny versions here, and both DH and I loved it. I used 2% milk, reduced the amount of potatoes and added extra veggies - including green beans. Because DH and I are pepper-freaks, I tossed in a pinch of white pepper as well which we liked. Note: This soup is EVEN BETTER the next day!! I'll surely be adding this to my lunch rotation. Thanks Homegirl!"
