If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen me posting and raving about this soup this week. Its pretty rare that I cook, shoot, AND post something so quickly, and when you do you KNOW it is something I’m really excited about.

Why am I so excited? This week I busted the recipe rut!

When I make chicken soup I have a few that I tend to go with every time. Chicken Noodle Soup – this version is turkey, but you can easily sub in chicken. I usually do when it isn’t a few days after Thanksgiving!

I also LOVE this creamy chicken wild rice soup. So hearty and full of awesome wild rice and mushrooms.

Those are both awesome options, but this creamy chicken pot pie soup has officially moved into one of my very favorites.

Plus…BONUS. It is something new! I hate getting stuck in recipe ruts, and it is a trap I fall in so often. This soup cured my recipe rut this week. It is creamy, and comforting, and has all of the flavors of a traditional pot pie, but in soup form.

My kids even ate this up after some initial, “What? No noodles? Well, if there isn’t noodles there must be dumplings, right? Wait….is that something GREEN in my soup? HOW did something GREEN get into my soup?”

After all that, most of them dug in, and even ate a few vegetables in the process. WHY the initial hesitation? The recipe RUT I’ve been in so often and for so long.

This was fantastic with my homemade milk rolls and some herbed compound butter smeared on. Step out of your comfort zone, and make something new this week!

Even if it DOESN’T work, you’ve have tried it and learning something in the process. That’s a win/win in my book!

This recipe was most definitely inspired by a pin I saw a few months ago. I just love Shugary Sweets, and her version of this soup looks so fantastic! I love the broccoli in it, but I wanted to go with a more traditional pot pie route with mine.
