Crock pot potato soup with chicken
Potato Soup is so simple but always a crowd pleaser. Our family loves this easy crock pot potato soup recipe so I thought why not try adding chicken?
The results? Everyone raved about this soup and declared it a hit! You are going to love it and how easy it is!
Make sure you have a crock pot to make chicken and potato soup.
There are some really good ones on sale right now. If you work all day, you may want to invest in a programmable crockpot.
They are awesome because you can set them to start later, or to stop and switch to warm once the dinners are ready. Amazon has some on sale right now too.
I also really like this crockpot. Now, it’s not programmable but it’s so handy!
It has the feature where you can lock the lid down.
That feature is so nice for when you take meals to potlucks or need to transport the meal somewhere.
Another time saving tip is to use Crockpot liners. They make clean up a breeze.
Instead of scrubbing and washing the pot, you can just toss the liner. It is practically no clean up.
Let’s make creamy potato soup with chicken!
Ingredients for creamy potato soup with chicken:
- potatoes, peeled and diced

- Minced Garlic
- Chicken Breasts
- carrot sticks, chopped
- celery sticks, chopped
- dried thyme
- salt and pepper
- chicken broth

How to make crock pot chicken potato soup recipe:
Add the potatoes, garlic, onion, chicken, carrots, celery, seasonings and chicken broth to the crock pot.
Add lid to the crock pot, and cook on low for 6-7 hours.
Remove chicken and then with a whisk, mix up the remaining ingredients in the crock pot. You want to break up the potatoes and thicken the broth.
Shred the chicken and add back to the crock pot.
Add the heavy whipping cream and Xanthan Gum to the crock pot and cover.
Cook for additional 30 minutes to allow the soup to thicken.
Serve and top each serving with a small amount of cheddar cheese and bacon. Enjoy!
The Xanthan gum is for thickening the soup. You can also use a corn starch slurry instead of the Xanthan Gum for thickening.
Cream cheese is also good mixed in for something different and it is so creamy. You can also use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts.
Tips for slow cooker chicken potato soup:
We keep diced onion and bell pepper in the freezer so it is easy to add to any recipe we like. Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions.
If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine if you have children that are picky.
I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.
This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.
Learn and how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen!
