- Serve hot with biscuits or pie crust.
- The longer the soup sits, the thicker it will be. I like to make mine ahead of time and serve later.
- The flour paste is essential for a thicker soup; if you prefer a thin-style soup, skip that step.
- Allow soup to natural release to insure all ingredients are cooked to perfection.
Use poultry seasoning in place of Italian seasoning if you like.
Swap out the peas/carrots for other veggies like mushrooms or asparagus.
This amazing soup is thick and rich, yet it can be customized with pasta or rice as well. Simply add it in before pressure cooking.
How to store leftovers
Store the chicken pot pie in an airtight container for 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
How to make it gluten-free
To make the recipe Gluten-Free, replace the butter-flour paste with arrowroot starch or cornstarch slurry. Mix 1 tsp starch with 1-2 tsp water to make the slurry.
