chicken pot pie recipe

Last week, I went over my friend Zora’s house and as I walked in I could smell dinner. I thought something along the line of a pot pie. When I asked what it was she said it was a chicken Pot Pie Soup and I just had to try it. Because Zora is one of the nicest ladies I have had the pleasure of calling my friend, she got me a spoon. Oh, it was amazing! I loved it and immediately asked for the recipe. She said, “I just threw it together.” But she gave me the list of ingredients and a few days later, my family and I enjoyed the same soup!
Now, I know many people have a pot pie soup they love, but there is a secret ingredient that elevates this soup to a whole new level of soup awesomeness.
So here it is, the secret shared from my friend Zora to you….Montreal Steak seasoning!
Seriously people, you have got to try this. It is oh, so good and will not disappoint.
Enjoy this fall and winter season with a classic comfort food.

  • 4 teaspoons Montreal Steak seasoning
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Bring a large pot of water to a boil, once water is boiling add in potatoes and cook until tender. Strain potatoes from pot and set them aside in a bowl.

In a large pot, over medium to high heat add butter, once butter has started to melt add in carrots, cook for 1-2 minutes, then add in onion and celery, season vegetables with 2 teaspoons of Montreal Steak seasoning. Cook until onions are translucent. Add in water and chicken base, bring is a boil. Let it cook over medium heat for 10-15 minutes.

    This sounds and looks so delicious. I love Chicken Pot Pie and this looks equal delicious. Putting it on our weekly menu for next week. Can’t wait to try it. Thanks for sharing your friend’s recipe!

    For even more flavor use chicken stock instead of water. Also, instead of cooking potatoes separately you could just add them to the water to boil. That way they will also be flavored and it will save a pot. :)

    This sounds wonderful. I’m going to serve it with homemade biscuits on the side instead of crackers. That would really taste like chicken pot pie. My mouth is watering thinking about it! Thanks for this awesome sounding recipe.

    I made this tonight and it was delicious!! A bit salty so next time I’m only using about 2-3 tsp total of the Montreal Seasoning. That combined with the chicken stock seems to be a lot of sodium. Which don’t get me wrong….I love my salt but I’ll make a bit of an adjustment next time. Also I took a store bought pie crust dough and put it on a cookie sheet. Sliced it with a pizza cutter into short strips and dusted it with some poultry seasoning and a bit of salt and baked it until golden…about 6min. (put it on parchment) Topped the soup with some of those and it made it even more like Pot Pie. :-) Thanks for sharing this recipe….a definite keeper!!!

    This was fabulous! Just finished making it an hour ago, and I’ve already had two bowls for dinner! Thanks for sharing the Montreal Seasoning tip! I would never have thought to use this in soup! Now what else can I use this in?

    So glad I found your site! I was looking for a good chicken pot pie soup recipe to try, and made this for dinner last night. My husband and two year old daughter loved it and we just had great leftovers for lunch too. I’ll definitely make this again, and I’ll only use three tbsp of seasoning to make it more kid palatable (but never bland!)Thanks for posting this, it was a hit!

      You can find chicken base in your local grocery store typically above the chicken broth it comes in cubes or a powder form. Does this help?

    Thus looks so yummy making right now but don’t have,any Montreal Steak seasoning would I be able to use Season All or Emeril ‘s Original Essence instead?

  11. Tammy says

    Made this tonight and it is soooo tasty. I mainly made it because I had leftover heavy cream from breakfast and 2 cups of chicken broth from another recipe I was sitting on. Luckily, I came across your great recipe! Super yummy on a day the weather got colder in New England. Thanks for posting!

    Any suggestions for making this into a slow cooker soup to come home to after working? This sounds delicious and can’t wait to try it!
