How to thicken chicken pot pie soup
I personally think that the consistency of this pot pie soup is perfectly creamy, however you can easily thicken it more if you prefer it extra creamy. I’d start by mixing in 1 tablespoon of cornstarch at a time. In a small bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water, then add to pot pie soup and stir. Continue to add by the tablespoon until you reach desired creaminess.
Can you freeze chicken pot pie soup?
Yes, you can freeze this chicken pot pie soup. Once cooled, store soup in an airtight container or freezer bag and place in the freezer. To thaw, stick in the fridge overnight. I prefer to warm my pot pie soup back up on the stove, however you can stick in the microwave too. If it thickens up too much while in the freezer, feel free to add a splash of chicken broth to help make the consistency more ‘soupy’ again.
