What you will need to make my easy Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Soup:
- Chicken – I used a boneless, skinless chicken breast but thighs would work great as well (this is a great leftover chicken recipe too)
- 15 oz. can of Libby’s Mixed Vegetables – Makes this meal so easy to prepare. Gives you all the tasty vegetables and nutrition you’d want in a meal
- Chicken broth
- or chicken stock
- Garlic Salt
- Heavy whipping cream
- Cornstarch – to thicken it at the end
- Large refrigerated biscuits -used to make mini bread bowls seen below instead of using a traditional pie crust
- Instant Pot pressure cooker (any brand will work)
Let me show you how easy this pressure cooker soup is to make!
The first step is to sauté your diced chicken and onion with pieces with garlic and garlic salt! Add to your pot and stir. It takes about 5 minutes for the outside of your chicken to no longer be pink.
- Then pour in your chicken broth and drained, canned vegetables.
- Stir gently and close your lid and pressure release valve.
- Set to high pressure for 2 minutes followed by a 3 minute natural release.
- Quick release rest of pressure at that time.
- Pour in your heavy whipping cream and if you want to thicken it, set to saute again.
- Whisk together cornstarch and water until smooth and add.
- Bubble, thicken, and serve in bread bowls cooked separately!
That’s how Instant Pot chicken pot pie soup is made!
Pressure cooking is so popular for so many reasons, and it’s all true. Creating a complete meal in under 30 minutes is no feat for this multi function machine!
Of course if you don’t have one, I suggest you invest in an Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi for sure. If not you can make our chicken pot pie muffins with cream of chicken soup, but homemade is always best.
Chicken pot pie isn’t complete without some sort of breading. Of course, you can bake rolls and serve them on the side of your Pressure Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Soup.
Instead, I made mini bread bowls though!
Believe me, this is easy and will be a real hit with your little ones, you can take credit for the idea too. 😉 You just need a package of large refrigerated biscuits and a muffin pan to make them, easy right??!!
All I did was flip my muffin tin upside down. Then with my biscuits:
- Flatten each biscuit with your hands
- Lay each one on top of your muffin tin mounds
- Wrap the sides down so they’re covering the area as much as possible
- Bake as directed on the package
- Check after about 10 minutes
- Remove when tops are a golden brown
- Allow to cool for about 5 minutes
- Pop them off and you’re ready to fill them up with soup!

Believe me, this creamy chicken soup will get raving reviews from everyone at the table. It doesn’t matter what brand or model you have, it is simple to make in any of them!
- You can make it on the stovetop too by subbing chicken into this turkey pot pie soup recipe.
From start to finish this will be done in under 30 minutes! Much faster than using your slow cooker. For a gluten free chicken pot pie soup just ensure your chicken broth states it is gluten free, and eliminate the biscuits.
How long is leftover soup good for?
Assuming you’ve stored it in an airtight container inside the refrigerator, leftover soup will last 3-4 days. Never remove a large pot of soup from the stove and place it directly in the refrigerator.
- Always allow the soup to cool and reach room temperature before transferring it into containers.
- Fresh is always best, but next day soup with pull apart bread is great too.
- To reheat soup transfer it to a new dish that isn’t cold from the fridge. In a microwave reheat in 30 second increments stirring in between times.
- On the stovetop reheat over low to medium heat stirring intermittently until it is as warm as you desire.

Pressure Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Soup
- 1 large chicken breast boneless, skinless, diced into bite size pieces
- 1 can mixed vegetables Libby's Mixed Vegetables, drained
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1 tbsp garlic minced
- 1.5 c chicken broth
- 1 c heavy whipping cream
- 3 tbsp cornstarch
- 3 tbsp cold water or chicken broth
- 1 tube refrigerated biscuits large variety
- Turn your pressure cooker to saute and add your diced chicken breast, olive oil, minced garlic and garlic salt. Mix together.
- Saute until outside of chicken pieces are no longer pink. Turn pot off/cancel.
- Add your chicken broth and can of Libby's mixed vegetables (that has been drained of liquid inside the can). Stir gently.
- Close your pressure cooker lid and steam valve and set to high pressure for 2 minutes. Allow to naturally release for 2-3 minutes (just to avoid a bit of liquid from coming out when you release the steam valve).
- Release steam valve and lift lid. Turn pot off, then press saute button again.
- Pour in your heavy whipping cream. In a small bowl whisk together your cornstarch and cold water/or cold chicken broth until smooth.
- Add this into your pot and stir. Once it begins to bubble it will thicken.
- Allow to bubble for about 2 minutes stirring slowly, then turn pot off. Will thicken even more as it sits.
- If you'd like to make mini bread bowls set your oven to the directions on the package. Flatten each large biscuit. Flip a muffin tin upside down and form biscuit around bottom of muffin tin humps. Bake for approx. 11 minutes or until tops are light/medium brown. Remove from oven and remove, set on paper towel to cool and serve soup inside.
