Seasoned with the aromatic flavors of thyme and nutmeg, this creamy chicken pot pie soup, loaded with tender chicken and vegetables, is the perfect alternative to chicken pot, especially for winter.
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ½ cup onions, sliced
  • 1 ¼ cup carrots, diced
  • 1 cup parsnips, diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 2 cups chicken broth, divided in half
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt, more as needed
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 cup raw chicken, sliced
  • ⅓ cup flour
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  1. In a medium to large sized pot, add the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic to the pot and cook the garlic until it starts to turn golden brown on the edges, about one minute. Next, add the onions, cooking them until they begin to soften.
  2. Once the onions have softened, add the carrots, parsnips, and celery. You want to add vegetables that take longer to soften first. Pour about a cup of chicken broth into the pot over high heat, reserving the other cup for later. Stir in the dried thyme, nutmeg, and salt.
  3. Once the carrots, parsnips, and celery are soft, add the sliced chicken and the peas. You want these two ingredients to be added later so that the chicken doesn’t become overcooked and the peas don’t lose its vibrant green color.
  4. Mix together the flour and the reserved chicken broth until the flour has dissolved. This mixture will serve as a thickener for the soup. Slowly pour the flour and chicken broth mixture into the soup, stirring as you add to make sure that it is evenly incorporated into the soup.
  5. Lastly, pour the milk and stir to create the creamy texture of the soup. Make sure to add the milk last so that it doesn’t curdle.
  6. Remove the soup from heat and divide them into four bowls.
  7. Top the bowls with fresh parsley.
