What is Chicken Parmesan Soup?

Chicken Parmesan Soup combines all the delicious flavors of chicken parmesan but in a soup form.

The simple ingredients are cooked on low all day in chicken broth. This allows the chicken to have so much flavor and so delicious. Once you have cooked all the ingredients, then remove the chicken and shred.

Add in your heavy whipping cream and pasta to make this soup more creamy. Top with parmesan cheese for an amazing Chicken Parmesan Soup without a lot of work.

For the full recipe and ingredients, scroll to the bottom for the recipe card.

Recipe Variations:

  • Cooked Chicken – We used frozen chicken breast for this recipe, but you can easily use boneless chicken thighs or chicken tender. If you have leftover rotisserie chicken, you can add that to the soup as well.
  • Double the Recipe – This recipe is perfect for feeding a crowd. Double the ingredients for a crowd pleasing soup. Add a side of salad and breadsticks and everyone will come back for more.
  • Seasoning – We used Italian Seasoning blend for this recipe. You can easily use fresh herbs if you prefer or other types of seasoning.
  • Change the Pasta – We usually cook this dish with a traditional pasta. But if you prefer to use gluten free pasta or whole wheat pasta instead, I would cook separately. This will ensure that the pasta gets cooked and is not mushy.
  • Add in Vegetables – Add in bell peppers, onions, or spinach to add flavor to this delicious soup.
  • Spicy – Add in Red Pepper Flakes to this soup to add a little kick to the soup.

Step by Step Instructions:

  • Step 1 – First, add the chicken breast, minced garlic, and crushed tomatoes. Then add in tomato sauce, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and chicken broth to the crock pot.
Pouring the chicken broth in the slow cooker with the other ingredients
  • Step 2 – Cover crock pot with lid, and cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
Adding the ingredients in the slow cooker
  • Step 3 – Remove the chicken, shred and add back to the slow cooker.
  • Step 4 – About 30 minutes before serving, add in the shredded Parmesan cheese, heavy whipping cream and rotini pasta. Cook until everything is blended together and the pasta is cooked al dente.
  • Step 5 – During this last step, I like to go ahead and sauté the bread crumbs. Cook in the butter in a sauce pan on the stovetop.
Cooking parmesan in a skillet
  • Step 6 – Top the individual soup servings with mozzarella cheese and bread crumbs. Enjoy! It really is so tasty.

How to Serve

  • Garden Salad – Serve it with a salad and your dinner is complete. Talk about an easy and frugal dinner idea.
  • Cheese Sticks – It’s also really good with garlic bread or Garlic Bread Cheese Sticks Recipe. I highly recommend the bread.
  • More Easy Sides – See What to Serve with Chicken Parmesan for easy side dishes.
  • Steamed Broccoli – In just minutes, this easy broccoli side dish is ready to enjoy. It is light and healthy. We love this with the cream sauce.

I like serving this dish with a light veggie. It balances out the heavy cream sauce for the best combination.

My kids also like to spoon the sauce over the veggies and they don’t complain about eating their veggies.

Topping Ideas:

There are many different ways to top this delicious soup. These are some of our favorites.

  • Croutons
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Ricotta

Can this Soup be Made on the Stove Top?

Yes, this soup can definitely be made in your dutch oven or in a large pot on the stove. Place the ingredients in the large pot and cook until chicken is done.

Add in the pasta and the heavy cream once the chicken is cooked and shredded. Continue cooking for about 20 minutes and then serve with your favorite topping.

I like to make it on the stove top as well if I am going to be home. It cooks perfectly on the stove and it always smells delicious.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How to Store Leftovers:

This Crock Pot Chicken Parmesan Soup is delicious leftover. We like to place in individual air tight containers for an easy way to have lunch the next day. Place containers in the refrigerator and they will stay good for about 3 to 4 days.

How to Reheat:

This soup heats well on the stove or in a microwave. The soup is delicious the next day as the ingredients really marinate together. Add a side of garlic bread and your lunch is complete.

Can I Freeze?

I would recommend keeping the pasta and cream broth separate and just freezing the soup contents. Then when you are ready to serve again, add in the tortellini. Then mix in the heavy cream as the recipe card indicates.
If frozen properly, this soup will last about 2 months in the freezer. Thaw soup in the refrigerator overnight and then reheat on the stovetop.

  1. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes, penne or egg noodles will work great in this recipe too!

  2. Carrie Barnard says:

    I would use 1.5 pounds of chicken. Thank you!

  3. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes, cook on high pressure for 25 minutes with a quick release. Shred the chicken and add in the uncooked pasta and cook on high pressure for 3 minutes with a quick release. Then stir in the cream and parmesan cheese and heat until the cheese is melted. It’ll work perfectly!

  4. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes, the leftovers freeze great!

  5. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes that should work. You can just sub the crushed tomatoes for tomato sauce.

  6. Bear's Mom says:

    Have not made but wondered if I could do a 32oz can of tomato sauce and maybe 5 or 6 cups of chicken broth. I’m trying to avoid crushed tomatoes. Nobody likes them in my house, so I need a suitable alternative.

    This was a great recipe for a busy cold Saturday. I started the crockpot in the morning before going to kids sports and running errands. I set it on low for 8 hours. The back end of the recipe was super easy; I did that while cleaning up the kitchen and prepping the breadcrumb topped (which totally takes this recipe to the next level). It was a winner for the whole family. Definitely adding this one to the rotation.

  8. Amy says:

    Do not buy this sites E-Cookbooks. You pay it and never get the cookbooks….so you email her…her mailbox is full!!!! She got my $$…no cookbooks….and no way to connect with her except on rating a recipe!!!!!!

  9. Heidj says:

    Made it in the instapot using frozen chicken breasts. High pressure for 15 minutes and then natural release for 10 (probably could have gotten a way with a bit less but it didn’t seem overcooked). Finished it up with 30 minutes on slow cook high for the noodles. I also subbed the cream for a can of evaporated milk and it was still good (I’m sure not as creamy as otherwise, but good).

  10. Liz says:

    This recipe is so simple but delicious! Will definitely make again! It yielded a lot of leftovers for my family. Can I freeze the leftovers?

  11. Erika Vukovich says:

    I haven’t made this yet but was wondering how much chicken I should use? Is 2 lbs too much?

    Excellent recipe. Made it tonight. Perfect for a cold winter night. Very easy to make. I made it on the stovetop since I was in a hurry. It’s a keeper.

    Making for the 2nd time in INSTANT POT! Husband loves it. ? *NOTE: I’ve been leaving out the heavy cream and tomatoes.* I sauté the chicken and deglaze pot w/ some chicken broth. Shred chicken and add it back to bottom of pot. Add spices (you could add the tomatoes here. I added mushrooms instead), then the rotini pasta. Top the pasta with can of tomato sauce and I finished of by doubling the chicken broth. Cover and set pressure cook for 8 – 10 minutes (for softer pasta) and let it cook. ? If still using heavy cream, I would add it after cooking is complete, along with the Parmasean cheese. Hope this is helpful! Props to Carrie for this delicious and hearty soup that’s perfect for winter.

  14. Emily says:

    Can I use a different pasta?

  15. Rebecca says:

    Made this today at lunch on the stove top, it was wonderful. My husband had seconds. Was a great success and a keeper,
