  • Author: kelseynixon

  • Yield: 6 Servings


When a classic dish like chicken pot pie meets a big pot of soup consider me ON BOARD – especially when there are biscuits involved. Yum!


  • 4 Tablespoons butter or olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, peeled and diced

  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and diced

  • 3 celery stalks, diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/3 cup flour

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 2 cups milk

  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken (I use a rotisserie chicken)

  • 1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, diced

  • 1 cup frozen petite peas

  • Juice from ½ a lemon

  • Salt and cracked black pepper, to taste

  • Biscuits for serving*


  1. Prepare biscuits.* (see below)

  2. Heat butter in a large stock pot over medium-high heat until melted (or heat the olive oil until it is shimmering).  Add onion, carrots, and celery.  Saute for 6-7 minutes, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft and translucent.  Add in the garlic and saute for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the garlic is fragrant.

  3. Stir in the flour until it is completely combined, and saute for an additional 1 minute, stirring occasionally.  Gradually add in the chicken stock and milk, stirring frequently.  Stir in the chicken and the potatoes.

  4. Bring the mixture to a simmer (be careful not to bring it to a boil!), stirring occasionally so that the bottom of the soup does not stick to the pan.  Then reduce heat to medium-low, and continue simmering the soup for 10-15 minutes until the potatoes are soft and cooked through.

  5. Finally, stir in peas and lemon juice. Taste the soup and season with additional salt and pepper, as needed.

  6. Serve immediately, with biscuits on the side.

If you’re up for taking it easy, these are my favorite store-bought biscuits from the freezer aisle that I pop into the oven just as I begin cooking this recipe and emerge ready for dunking just as I finish up.
