Chicken pot pie is one of my favorite comfort foods. The only problem is that it does require a bit of hands-on time, which isn't exactly conducive to weeknight suppers.
That's where this easy slow cooker chicken pot pie soup comes in! The ingredients are very similar to my original Keto Chicken Pot Pie recipe, so you know that it tastes delicious.
You can serve the soup as is, or whip up a batch of keto butter crackers to replicate the flaky crust of a traditional pot pie.
Ingredients and substitutions:
- Chicken breast can be swapped with chicken thighs or turkey breast.
- Baby Bella Mushrooms have a mild flavor that picky eaters will likely not even notice. You can swap these with white mushrooms or leave them out entirely.
- Frozen peas and carrots
- Chicken broth
- Garlic powder, onion powder, parsley, thyme, and poultry seasoning.
- Heavy cream
- Cream cheese
- Xanthan gum thickens the broth and is completely optional.
Cooking Method and Tips:
- This recipe couldn't be easier - just add the ingredients except cream cheese, heavy cream, and xanthan gum to the slow cooker and let it do the rest!
- When the cooking time is complete, stir in the cream and cream cheese and shred the chicken.
- If you are using pre-cooked chicken, you can reduce the cooking time by about half.
- If you don't want to use the slow cooker, you can make this recipe on the stovetop using a dutch oven. Just simmer on low until the chicken is cooked through and the turnips are soft.
- I haven't tested this recipe in the instant pot yet.
One of the best things about this recipe is that most of the prep work can be done in advance and frozen for an easy crockpot "dump" meal - meaning you literally just dump it into the crockpot!
Simply put all of the ingredients except the broth, cream, cream cheese, and xanthan gum, into a freezer-safe container. and then freeze it for up to 6 months.
When you are ready to cook, just empty the contents of the bag to the slow cooker, add the broth and cook for about 8 hours on low. Then, follow the rest of the instructions for adding the cream, cream cheese, and xanthan gum.
Note - when freezing, I like to use bullion instead of prepared chicken broth so that I only need to add water when cooking.
