Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup
I love pot pie, but it’s generally not a weeknight dinner here. It’s hard to squeeze in making the filling and baking it up before everyone’s hanging in the kitchen claiming they’re starving. This Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup has all the flavors of a classic pot pie, but it’s simple enough to pull off on a busy night.
Using the Instant Pot makes this a hands-off, one pot dish. You start by using the sauté feature to cook the onions and make a white sauce. Then, your broth and veggies go in and you set the cook time.
The perfect time to make the pie crust croutons is while the soup is coming to pressure. By the time you’re pulling them from the oven, the soup should be just about ready for its last step. If it finished before you’re ready, feel free to let it depressurize naturally for a few minutes!
The last step is stirring in the peas, cooked chicken, milk, and seasonings. These ingredients just need to heat through, so it will only take a few minutes for your soup to be ready at this point. Be sure not to let it boil once you’ve added the milk – remove the pot from the Instant Pot if you start getting close.
Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup is a bowl of comfort. Chicken and vegetables in a creamy soup base, topped with crisp, flaky pie crust croutons are definitely a crowd pleaser! You and your family will love digging into this on a chilly evening. Add a big salad and this is a company-worthy dinner.
If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can always so for the stove-top Chicken Pot Pie Soup recipe too.
