This chicken pot pie soup is naturally Paleo, Whole30, Gluten-free, and Dairy-free.

I go through slow cooker phases. Sometimes I use it a lot. Sometimes I don’t use it at all.

But I recently had to get surgery on my finger and so cooking has been a bit more difficult. Slow cooker recipes have been a life saver, so when I had a craving for chicken pot pie, I decided it was time to make a Whole30 chicken pot pie soup in my crockpot!

Ingredient tips for this slow cooker chicken pot pie soup

1. Cut the veggies in larger pieces. You don’t want them to totally go to mush when cooking in the slow cooker for so long.

  • For the potatoes, this means cutting them into 2 inch cubes. (Note: they will get mushy, which is good, but they wont be totally mashed)
  • the cauliflower and broccoli should be medium sized florets
  • the carrots should be cut into thicker slices

2. Speaking of veggies, you don’t need to add broccoli if you don’t want to. I have always added it to my chicken pot pie and love it, but I know it isn’t a “classic” ingredient.

3. I personally use coconut cream here. Savoy coconut cream is my favorite. But you can also use the thick part of a full-fat can of coconut milk.

  • Note: it is very important you actually like the taste of you coconut cream or milk! This affects the flavor of this Paleo chicken pot pie soup, so make sure you use your favorite brand.

How to make this Healthy Chicken Pot Pie Soup:

It’s easy really!

You put all of the ingredients into a slow cooker (except for the broccoli and peas), and cook it for 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low.

THEN when there is one hour of cooking left, add the broccoli and peas.

Once the soup is done, take the chicken out and shred it.

Lastly, take 2 cups of the soup out of the slow cooker and blend it in a blender. Add the blended soup back to the rest of the soup, along with the shredded chicken. And that is it!

  1. This was DELICIOUS!  I am doing paleo so added a bit of Kerry butter and cashew cream cheese but my husband who doesn’t even follow paleo also loved with no additions!
    Thank you!5 stars

    1. I have not tried either but I would think it could work well to freeze after. I’m not very experienced with freezing foods but I want to learn! Sorry I can’t be more helpul!

  2. I like the soup but the rosemary flavor was really intense for me. I would skip it altogether next time to get a flavor profile I like. I didn’t realize how strong this spice is.3 stars

    1. Ah good to know! I’m a huge rosemary lover and always add it to chicken soups or pot pies. I’ll keep that in mind!
