Ok let’s get to the turkey pot pie soup shall we……
I used the largest of the 3 you see here…because I wanted room to stir and allow it to bubble to perfection.
Like I said there aren’t a ton of ingredients in pot pie soup and it’s a great leftovers recipe so you don’t waste a bite.
Ingredients you’ll need for turkey pot pie soup
- Large Neat Nest® pot
- Diced turkey or chicken – leftovers are great, or cook fresh pcs. and add them right in
- Frozen mixed vegetables – choose any variety you like
- Rosemary – I like using a fresh sprig
- Chicken broth
- Heavy cream
Go ahead and throw it all in…except for the heavy cream, we will add that closer to the end.
I include the spices I used in the recipe link below but use what flavors you like when enjoying a traditional pot pie.
I suggest adding just a pinch of salt(s) and then seasoning with salt when it is done to get the best flavor. I tend to under-season so everyone can adjust to their liking. I prefer less and my husband would like more than would please me so I just add enough for flavoring while it’s boiling.
Once all your vegetables, and potatoes are nice and tender to your liking then you’ll add the heavy cream which will make it smooth and delish.
At the same time this is added I use a moment to throw in some flaky biscuits into the oven to get that pot pie feeling.
You can either:
- Serve biscuits on the side
- Cut them in half and dunk them into the sides of each soup bowl so they soak up the goodness when served
Again, I allow everyone to choose which one they desire because some love the soaking up and others prefer their foods to be served separate (i.e. my husband). When you have a family of 5 it’s easier to let everyone do as they wish so you can have a kumbaya moment at the table. 😉

Turkey Pot Pie Soup
- Add all ingredients except heavy cream and cornstarch/water mixture into your Neat Nest large pot on medium heat over your stovetop.Bring to a low rolling boil
- Stir intermittently allowing the potatoes and frozen vegetables to soften and become as tender as you want them to be. Remove sprigs of rosemary and thyme if you added the whole piece.
- Once the diced potatoes and vegetables are the perfect texture for you, add your cup of heavy whipping cream and stir
- At this time put your refrigerated biscuits on a Farberware sheet pan and put into a preheated oven using the directions listed on your can for temperature and timing.
- In a small bowl whisk together your 3 tbsp of cold water and cornstarch until smooth, dump this mixture into your pot and stir.
- Stir slowly allowing your chicken pot pie soup to thicken (will continue to thicken as it sits and cools down too).
- Remove from heat when soup is the thickness you desire (can whisk 1 more tbsp of cornstarch + 1 tbsp of cold water together and add in if you want it even thicker).
- Serve in bowls with biscuits on the side or halved and put on top/inside your bowl of chicken pot pie soup.
