CHICKEN POT PIE SOUP – a deliciously simple soup recipe made from scratch. A fantastic classic comfort food brought to you in bowl.
I am a huge fan of soup in the fall and winter months, wait actually all year long. And typically I have a soup I stick to for the season, like summer we do a lot of my Authentic Chicken Tortilla Soup and for fall and winter I stick to this CHICKEN POT PIE SOUP. I can’t even really begin to describe how amazing this soup is; creamy, warm and just full of comfort. And guess what you really don’t even miss the crust from the chicken pot pie, seriously.
Last week, I went over my friend Zora’s house and as I walked in I could smell dinner. I thought something along the line of a pot pie. When I asked what it was she said it was a chicken Pot Pie Soup and I just had to try it. Because Zora is one of the nicest ladies I have had the pleasure of calling my friend, she got me a spoon.
Oh, it was amazing! I loved it and immediately asked for the recipe. She said, “I just threw it together.” But she gave me the list of ingredients and a few days later, my family and I enjoyed the same soup!
Now, I know many people have a pot pie soup they love, but there is a secret ingredient that elevates this soup to a whole new level of soup awesomeness.
So here it is, the secret shared from my friend Zora to you….Montreal Steak seasoning!
Seriously people, you have got to try this. It is oh, so good and will not disappoint.
Enjoy this fall and winter season with a classic comfort food.

My favorite kitchen items to make this CHICKEN POT PIE SOUP are below, you will want of few of these just for your everyday cooking.
Pots: So I am a total pan snob after having an assortment of brands in our cupboard over the years. After getting some Calpho pans on sale at my local grocer, I won’t try anything more. They are affordable and durable – a win, win in our home.
Measuring Cups: Nothing beats a good set of measuring cups that last a long time. I love metal measuring cups because of their durability.
Measuring Spoons: I have to have a metal set of measuring spoons on hand. The plastic ones just don’t last long in our house partly due to the garbage disposal.
