Instant Pot recipes have been requested by many readers… and I decided to try a Chicken Pot Pie Soup! So glad I did. The soup is loaded with vegetables and the most tender chicken, and I love that it is ready to eat when you are! Topped with a homemade buttermilk biscuit or my cheesy garlic biscuits, this a complete and delicious meal, especially when you want to warm up on a chilly day! It’s a savory soup with all of the flavors of a Chicken Pot Pie.

Ingredients & Substitutions

Vegetables: I used a combination of fresh and frozen vegetables in the soup, which creates a well-balanced and flavorful soup. If using all fresh or all frozen, you may have to adjust the cooking time and it may slightly change the taste and texture of the soup.

Potatoes: Russet potatoes are great because of their starchiness. However, you could certainly use a different kind of potato like Yukon gold or red potatoes.

Seasonings: The seasonings are just right with the combination of paprika, dried oregano, kosher salt, and pepper.

Chicken: Chicken becomes juicy and tender when cooked in the instant pot. And, this is the perfect meal to throw together if you forgot to thaw the chicken! (Just make sure it is thawed enough to cut it into bite-sized pieces.) It can go right in the instant pot from frozen.

Cream of Chicken Soup: If you don’t have cream of chicken soup, you could substitute condensed cream of mushroom soup. It may alter the flavor a bit, but will still be delicious!

Biscuits: The baked biscuits top the soup to give you the flavor and texture of a crust in a chicken pot pie. I have homemade buttermilk biscuits and cheesy garlic biscuits that are both SO GOOD in this soup and on their own!

Can I Make Chicken Pot Pie Soup Ahead Of Time?

You can certainly get a head start on this soup recipe by preparing a couple of things in advance. Since the dicing and chopping will probably take a little time, get the onion, carrots, and celery cut up. Then, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a few days. You can also get the biscuits made ahead of time, but I would not make those too far in advance, maybe a day. Once baked, allow the biscuits to cool to room temperature and then wrap them in aluminum foil. Place in refrigerator until ready to use; then, warm them in the oven at the lowest temperature for about 10 minutes before serving with the soup.

How To Store Chicken Pot Pie Soup

To store Chicken Pot Pie Soup, first, let it cool completely. Next, store it in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. I like to portion the soup for easy-to-grab and heat lunches! Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.

Freezing Soup

This soup can be frozen for up to three months. Let the soup cool completely before storing it in freezer-safe bags or containers that have been labeled and dated. When ready to reheat the soup, let it first thaw in the refrigerator.

The timer will start once the instant pot reaches the necessary internal temperature (about 10 minutes). Once the 4 minutes is complete, the instant pot will beep to indicate that cooking is complete.

  1. I don’t have a Manual power button can I just hit the soup button or the pressure cook button and cook for the same time?

  2. This soup is awesome! Delicious comfort food! Just made it today and hubs and I both loved it!! Made cheddar garlic biscuits which were perfect to break up and add to the soup in our bowls. Even better than traditional pot pie crust! I added some additional spices to the recipe (coriander, Italian spice blend, cardamom, and crushed black pepper) just because every recipe needs more seasoning when cooked in the IP. And I used frozen corn instead of canned because that is what I had on hand. This is a keeper for sure!

  3. 5 stars
    Loved this! I’m new to the instant pot and to be honest, I was skeptical about the 4 minutes. Veggies were perfectly cooked (skipped the corn). Cheddar biscuits on top was the kicker. Thank you!!!
