Creamy Pierogi Chicken Soup

Today’s Sunday Funday is all about soup!  I love soup any time of the year, but especially in the winter!

Today’s recipe is unique in that in place of noodles or dumplings (like wonton or tortellini soups) it uses pierogi!

Pierogi are potato dumplings native to Poland.  I’ve made homemade pierogi before (amazing), but went with the pre-made, frozen variety for this recipe (if I’m going through all the effort of making pierogi, I’m going to fry them up!)

This soup is super hearty and creamy and amazing - it is a must in the winter soup rotation!

Creamy Pierogi Chicken Soup

Adapted from Half-Baked Harvest

12 ounces thick cut bacon, cut in 1-inch pieces

1 pound chicken, cut in 1-inch pieces

1 onion, chopped

4 carrots, peeled and diced

4 celery stalks, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped

1 teaspoon dried thyme

Salt & pepper

6 cups chicken broth

1 package (frozen) potato & cheddar pierogi (about 28)

1 bunch kale, chopped (around 3 cups)

½ cup heavy cream

1 cup milk

½ cup shredded cheddar

Heat a large soup pot to medium heat.  Add the bacon and fry until crisp.  Move to a paper towel lined plate.  Drain off all but 1 tablespoon drippings.  

Add the chicken, onion, carrot, celery, and garlic.  Cook until chicken begins to brown and vegetables begin to soften.

Stir in the rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper, and chicken broth.  Simmer until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.

Bring to a low boil.  Add the pierogi and cook until done according to package instructions. Stir in kale, cream, milk, and cheddar.  Heat through and serve.


  1. This soup will be a great hit here, Amy. Thanks for sharing. It looks amazing.

  2. Brilliant recipe! I definitely need to start using pierogi's in my soup recipes. The wee little ones would be perfect for this. This recipe sounds so good and I can't wait to try it! - Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck - Colleen

  3. We love pierogies and I just never thought to use them in a soup and with chicken! It will be a nice change for sure!

  4. Wow Amy what a wholesome soup..perfect for the winter season. Got to give this soup a try but without the chicken.

  5. Filling and healthy soup for winters.
