This chicken potato soup is hearty and delicious and perfect for a winter meal! Gluten free and dairy free
I can’t type anymore, my fingers are frozen. Okay, not quite, but that’s how it feels these days! It has been so cold here lately – in the single digits some days. That’s too cold. That’s when I put on the leggings and sweaters and cozy up under a blanket with my boys and watch cartoons all morning.
The other thing that I do in these kind of frigid temperatures is make soup. And yesterday was a big pot of chicken potato soup – that’s my son’s favorite variety.
There’s just nothing like a bowl of chicken soup in the winter, is there? This version has onions, carrots, and lots of dill. Potatoes take the place of noodles, and the broth is thickened with some cornstarch and coconut milk so this is a thick and hearty stew-like soup. This chicken potato soup is so good for a winter lunch or dinner.
This chicken potato soup is:
- hearty and delicious
- grain free and dairy free
- wonderful for a winter day
Keep this recipe on hand, especially for those days when you are a bit under the weather. It comes together quickly and is so comforting.
Chicken and Potato Soup with Dill.
A hearty chicken potato soup with dill is so perfect for winter days!
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 onion chopped
- 1 cup frozen carrot coins
- 3 chicken breasts cut into small pieces
- 5 medium Yukon Gold potatoes peeled and diced
- 32 ounces reduced sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup water
- 2 ½ teaspoons chicken seasoning
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 2 teaspoons dried dill
- 1 ½ Tablespoons cornstarch or arrowroot powder
- 3 Tablespoons non-dairy milk
- fresh dill for garnish if desired
Heat the onion and the carrots in the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat for about five minutes.
Add the chicken breast, potatoes, chicken seasoning, water, and broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer.
Cook until chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. Use a spoon to remove any foam that rises to the top.
In a small cup, whisk together the cornstarch and non-dairy milk. Drizzle the mixture slowly into the pot, stirring constantly until the broth thickens.
Add the dried dill and pepper, stir.
Let cook for a few more minutes so the flavors combine.
How are you staying warm these days?
The soup looks wonderful. Is “chicken seasoning” the same thing as poultry seasoning?
Yes, same thing!
I’m frozen, too! Is it summer yet? This looks like the perfect soup to warm me up through this miserable winter… I looove dill :)

Oh, Kelly! I feel your numb-fingered-it’s-so-darn-cold pain! :D My kiddos actually have missed 2 1/2 days of school the last week or so because it’s so cold here! Thank you, thank you for this marvelous soup! I love how you thickened it with cornstarch and coconut milk to make it silky-rich and hearty – great idea! And the dill and potatoes are such a lovely twist! Yum, yum, yum! I am totally pinning this … and wishing I had a steaming bowl of this with me right now (as I sit in a cold ski lodge – no kidding!!!). Stay warm, my friend! :D ~Shelley
Ugh, I know, this cold is just too much! Thanks for your kind words! Hope you warm up soon!

Kelly this soup is absolutely gorgeous! So cozy and comforting for these looong cold winter days. Dill sounds like such a fun and unique seasoning to add!
P.S. I absolutely loooove your little soup crocks! Can I ask where you got them?!
Thank you so much, Sarah! That white crock was actually a lucky thrift store find! I find the best food props there!

Just sent this to my mum- she was looking for a chicken style soup and I love potatoes so its a win win ;)
Oooh, great! I hope she likes it, Arman!
Lisa @ Healthy Nibbles & Bits
I can see how this soup will keep you warm! This reminds of the soup my mom made when I was younger. She would add huge chunks of potatoes in soups, and I used to dig them all out! Pinning this so I can make it later!

I love dill in my chicken noodle soup! Just takes it over the top. So smart doing potatoes instead of noodles. Great for gluten free!
Thanks, Natalie! I’m a big dill fan!
I’m staying warm by making soups and other comforting meals in my slow cooker! (Although our temperatures here are nowhere near single digits. Brrrr!) Plus, cozy time on the couch with the kids and blankets, just like you. That is the best.
I love how you used potatoes instead of noodles in this soup, and the carrots and dill add nice pops of color! This looks like the perfect easy meal for lazy, chilly days!
Thank you so much, Kristine!
This soup looks amazing!! And I love the addition of coconut milk too. Yesterday I made a smoothie and added just a hint of coconut milk, and it was pure creamy perfection. I hope you warm up soon, and enjoy snuggle time :-)
