Leftover Chicken Soup Pot Pie

Leftover Chicken Soup Pot Pie

I’ve got to hand this one over to my favorite Facebook page, “Whats for Supper” (introduced to me by my sister-in-law CR), which was started by two sisters, Chava and Naomie (from what I gather anyway). As the name suggests, each day, they post what they are making for supper, and invite all their followers to do the same. Naomie sometimes suggests interested cooking tips, and the health benefits of various foods. They’ve created a family atmosphere, a place to shmooze about more than just food!

Now back to the food. In one post, a little while back, they offered suggestions of what to do with leftover chicken soup. I always have leftover soup, and it kills me to throw it away! Only one of the recipes appealed to me, and that was chicken pot pie. The delicious, creamy comfort food that we all love (and you thought it couldn’t get any comfier than chicken soup) is surprisingly easy to make. Making chicken pot pie using leftover chicken soup seemed a bit “off” at first, but once I tried it, I couldn’t help but make it again the next week. And it just keeps getting better. If you don’t like the sound of it, you can go ahead and boil up some chicken and carrots from scratch.

If you have other vegetables in your soup, like celery, parsnips etc. feel free to add them. (Almost) anything goes!

  1. Mmmmm….. those look heaven!! Is that dinner tonight? I would love to hear feedback on how everyone enjoyed! Thanks for the mention :)

  2. I’m so glad I found your site and this post. I was looking for something to do with my leftover chicken soup and this is great, easy and tasty!

  3. This came out great! Thank you so much! We did the sauté in our cast iron skillet and then just ended up leaving it in the skillet – we cut the puff pastry into squares and place along the top! Quick fun revamped weeknight meal! Thanks again!

  4. Can you make multi chicken pot pie and cover and freeze them. If so how long can can you have them in freeze. Do you need to put a base puff pastry on the bottom and on the top. Should it be baked and then frozen. I am going to use Sm single pot pies. Thank you so much for the help.
    This will be my first time trying to make it!

  5. I link making this with frozen ready made pie shells… One on top and one on bottom. Brings back memories of frozen chicken pot pie of my childhood.

    Oronoque is a good kosher brand

  6. What an awesome idea and recipe! Thank you. It came out perfectly although I sautéed onions in butter but other than that I made it as written. Delish. And more importantly no waste. Especially at today’s grocery prices.
