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 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 (much like this chicken mug pie from Rachel Ray).
  2. Dip the biscuit in the soup and eat the biscuit covered in soup.

How to thicken chicken pot pie soup

The best way to thicken chicken pot pie soup is to whisk all-purpose flour into heavy cream before mixing it into the soup. It perfectly thickens your soup without leaving any chunks.
