This chicken and vegetable soup recipe uses cooked shredded chicken, which might mean that you will have to do some advance preparation before making this soup. Using poached chicken breasts is one of the quicker ways of accomplishing pre-cooked chicken for this chicken soup recipe, though, since you just have to cover the chicken breasts with water or chicken stock and simmer through until cooked, which typically takes around twelve minutes or so. While you’re accomplishing this task, you can move on to the first step of the soup recipe, which is sautéing the veggies. If you are looking for a healthy leftover chicken recipe, this soup would fit the bill perfectly. You can shred your leftover chicken to add to your version of this chicken pot pie soup recipe.
Not only would this chicken pie soup recipe be an exceptional family dinner idea, but it could also be great lunch ideas for kids. You can make this soup the day before, but it is fast enough to make at thirty minutes that you could even prepare it just before the lunch hour. This pot pie soup recipe uses a variety of vegetables including carrots, celery, mushrooms, and frozen peas and corn, but if there is a particular vegetable your kids aren’t fond of, you can replace it with something else. The mushrooms add additional meatiness to this soup, but you could substitute them with a similar-textured vegetable, like eggplant, or the frozen peas with frozen green beans instead. Whatever you choose to do, the real key to this easy chicken pot pie soup recipe is the creamy broth, so if you switch up the veggies, it shouldn’t change your family’s perception of this soup being like their favourite chicken pot pie recipe.
The real bonus to this homemade chicken and vegetable soup recipe is that it tastes like chicken pot pie without you having to go through an insurmountable amount of work in the kitchen to prepare it. Chicken pot pies usually involve a pastry topping, which requires mixing, chilling, and rolling, but this soup omits all of the hassles.
