I have the perfect meal for all of you this season. It has YUM written all over it, we call it turkey pot pie soup!! You can easily use chicken too, that’s what I love about this easy meal. Special thanks goes out to Farberware for sponsoring this post. (affiliate links present)

Leftover Turkey Soup

Let’s start with the fact that I hate wasting food. I love having a few leftover turkey recipes on hand to use up my meat. This one is actually great with chicken too throughout the year so keep it in mind in those times too.

With a bag of frozen vegetables, leftover chicken or moist turkey, potato and onion, I can throw this pot pie soup together in no time at all. You can use just a little off your day old turkey wings or an entire breast diced up to make it extra hearty.

The pots, pans, and lids are stackable to save you a ton of room in your cupboard. If your goal for the new year is to organize, you can use our purge checklists and a set of these to organize your cupboards!

If you’re like me you’ll love them. Not only are they pretty, but they will help you organize your kitchen, it’s a mess right??!

Now you could add chicken to this or diced up pieces of crispy roast duck if that is what you have on hand. Here are the basic steps:

  1. Bring to boil all your ingredients EXCEPT for your heavy cream and cornstarch mixture.
  2. That means add onion, frozen mixed vegetables, potatoes, everything.
  3. Stirring occasionally it should be on a low rolling boil. If more than that, reduce heat.
  4. Once veggies and potatoes are tender add in your cream and if you want to thicken whisk cornstarch and a bit of water. It doesn’t take much as it will continue to thicken as it cools too.

The whole process of bringing to a boil and getting tender should take about 20 minutes, 30 minutes including time to bake your biscuits. Yes you can make homemade rolls too but typically I just buy already made refrigerated flaky Pillsbury style.

I used the largest of the 3 you see here. I wanted room to stir and allow it to bubble to perfection. Like I said there aren’t a ton of ingredients in this turkey soup. It’s a great leftovers recipe so you don’t waste a bite of your turkey meat.

  1. Large Neat Nest large pot
  2. Diced turkey or chicken – leftover turkey breast or turkey crown is great, or rotisserie chicken
  3. Frozen mixed vegetables – choose any variety you like
  4. Onion and celery is good
  5. Potato
  6. Rosemary – I like using a fresh sprig
  7. Garlic
  8. Chicken broth
  9. Heavy cream
  10. Spices
  11. Bay leaf is optional

Baking sheet for biscuits if you want to make them into small bowls, or just on the side.

Go ahead and throw it all in…except for the heavy cream. We will add that closer to the end. If you’re making chicken pot pie soup with biscuits the recipe will remain the same. Just use what you wish. This works great with diced rotisserie chicken too.

  • My suggestion is to add just a pinch of salt and pepper at the beginning. Then season when it is done to get the best flavor for each person. I tend to under-season so everyone can adjust to their liking.

I like this recipe a lot more than a traditional pot pie because of how easy it is. Without the need for any pie dough or making a homemade pie crust, it eliminates those tedious steps.

I suppose if that was your method of choice you could use this as the filling. I just love the insides so much I could skip the crust entirely and there’s no loss for me.

At the same time this is added I take a moment to throw some flaky biscuits into the oven. These will give this meal a 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. 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 cumbaya moment at the table. 😉

You could make this recipe while camping too using a large dutch oven. I would eliminate the bread all together, or just bring them already made. When in an RV or tent it is all about easy. BUT if you’re celebrating Thanksgiving out there you’ll want to use up all that meat for sure.

If you’ve tried Trader Joes turkey pot pie soup, this tastes very similar. I’d give it a whirl when it’s chilly outside and let us know what you think!

  • Add all ingredients EXCEPT heavy cream and cornstarch/water mixture into your 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 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.

I made this, but I used 2 envelops of turkey gravy instead of the cornstarch and in place of the biscuits I baked a empty pe shell and broke it up and stirred it into the soup. Super yummy

This looks so good. How would you adapt it for the Instant Pot?

What a fantastic idea!! A superb comfort food in the form of soup! Nothing like sipping on something hot when it is cold outside. This recipe is such a winner and serving the biscuits of the side is fantastic.

The last time I had a similar soup was way back in 2016, I think. So when I saw your version I was really excited about the memories it brought back. Anyway, great recipe - as always!

That is such a hearty, comforting and delicious pot pie soup. I love recipes where everything goes into the pan and not much effort is required :-)
