Crockpot Chicken Tortellini Soup Recipe

Soup is a favorite around here and it is just so simple to make. We love coming up with new recipes to try and this Crock Pot Chicken Tortellini Soup Recipe does not disappoint.

Each bite is hearty with lots of chicken and cheesy tortellini.  You get all of the best ingredients all in one soup for a dinner idea that is so simple to make.

Your house will smell amazing from this soup being slow cooked all day in the crock pot. The more it simmers the better it gets.

The cheese tortellini really add that extra something to the soup that makes it a family favorite and the best comfort food.

If you loved our Crock Pot Spinach Tortellini Soup, you will love this slow cooker chicken tortellini soup. Everyone loves cheese tortellini and it is the perfect ingredient to use in soup.

This is a must try.

  • dried basil
  • boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • dried oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • dried thyme
  • cheese tortellini
  • chicken broth – I like to use low sodium chicken broth.
  • fresh parsley to garnish. Optional but looks nice for a pop of color.

How to make crockpot chicken tortellini soup?

This is truly a toss and go recipe. You can easily put this together even during busy mornings and come home to dinner ready to enjoy.

Just add everything to the crock pot except the frozen tortellini. The onion carrot and seasonings really make this such a savory broth.

Cover and cook.

Once everything has finished cooking, take the chicken out of the crock pot and shred the chicken.

You can use 2 forks but I like to use an electric mixer. It is super fast and easy.

Right before serving, add the tortellini to the crock pot. Put the lid on and allow to cook until it is soft.

I normally add the pasta 30 minutes before I am ready to serve and cook on high.

What to serve with crockpot tortellini soup?

Everything you need for a great meal is in the slow cooker. Just add some crusty bread and that is all you need to go along with this soup.

We love Garlic Bread Cheese Sticks Recipe and it is perfect for dipping into the soup and getting every last drop. It is so good with the broth.

You might also like this Easy Homemade Dinner Rolls Recipe  with the soup.

If you do not have time to make bread, grab some French bread from the bakery or grocery store.

How long will tortellini soup last?

The soup will typically last 3-4 days in the fridge.

I love to eat leftovers for a quick lunch during the week. It sure makes an easy and savory meal.

My kids love for me to pack this in a thermos in their lunchbox for a change from sandwiches.

Can you freeze creamy chicken tortellini soup?

You can freeze this soup but I wouldn’t add the tortellini until ready to cook. Combine all of the ingredients in a freezer bag.

When you are ready to cook, dump the bag in your slow cooker. Cook as normal.

The cooking time will need to be increased if the soup is frozen.

  • Use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts.
  • Try rotisserie chicken to save even more time. You can even use leftover chicken and this recipe is even easier.
  • Substitute ground chicken or ground pork in this recipe.
  • Add Italian seasoning for a new flavor.
  • Make creamy tortellini soup and add heavy cream to the soup.
  • Try different types of tortellini. Some ideas include: mushroom, beef and more.
  • Add chopped onions to the veggies in the soup. This adds even more flavor.
  • Spinach is delicious in this and makes it even more filling.
  • Diced tomatoes make a great add in and bulk up this slow cooker soup.

  • The pasta will soak up the broth. When reheating, I like to add more chicken broth.
  • Use up extra veggies in the fridge. It is a good way to clean out the refrigerator while sneaking in extra veggies.
  • Cut vegetables the same size so they all cook evenly. I prefer larger chunks so they don’t get mushy during cooking or when reheated.

    A delicious change from chicken noodle soup!

  8. Carrie says:

    Yes, you just won’t need to cook it as long since the chicken is already cooked. I would cook it in the crock pot for 2-3 hours with the cooked chicken.

    Can you use rotisserie chicken instead?
