I love chicken pot pie. I have been making chicken pot pie soup in my slow cooker for years and knew I wanted to eventually convert it to an instant pot recipe. I finally did it in the Spring of this year when I was working on my instant pot cookbook. I just held out on sharing it until the weather cooled down. This creamy chicken soup is finally here today. And you need to add it to your list and make it immediately. Make sure you also check out our recipes for mini chicken pot pies and instant pot chicken pot pie recipe.

Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup with Biscuits

Chicken pot pie soup is basically the soup version of chicken pot pie filling. It’s a creamy and soup filled with chicken and vegetables cooked to perfection. In order to get the full experience, you really want to eat it with a biscuit on top. 

You can eat it in two ways: 

  1. Leave the biscuit on top and scoop through it with your spoon and into the soup.
  2. Dip the biscuit in the soup and eat the biscuit covered in soup.

  1. This looks great, and so simple! Is there a way to use uncooked chicken? I know that would add cook time and probably time to brown the chicken, but I’m just curious if you think it could work. Thanks!

    1. Hi Kate! Yes, you can make this soup with raw chicken. I would recommend chopping up the chicken and browning it along with the onion. Then increase the cook time to 15 minutes.

      You can also use frozen boneless chicken in this recipe. Just throw the chicken in with the broth and other ingredients. Set the cook time to 25 minutes. Once finished, remove the chicken, shred, and mix it back into the soup.
