How do you Make Crock Pot Chicken Vegetable Soup:

Ok, let’s great started with how to make chicken soup in slow cooker. Making this soup in the crock pot allows it to let it do all the work.  Just dump all the ingredients in and go about your day.  Now that is my type of recipe.

  • Step 1 – Combine Ingredients in Crockpot – First, place the diced chicken at the bottom of the crock pot.  Then combine all of the ingredients in the crockpot.

  • Step 2 – Stir to combine and cook – Once all the ingredients have been added, stir to combine.  Next cover and cook in the crock pot and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 3.
  • Step 3 – Serve and Enjoy – When it’s ready to be enjoyed, serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese and your favorite rolls.

How Long does Soup take to Cook in Slow Cooker?

Most of my soup recipes take approximately 6 hours on low or 3 hours on high to cook in a slow cooker.  If the soup does not include any meat or chicken (vegetables only), then you would want to reduce the cooking times.

Can I use Frozen Chicken Breast?

Yes, you can use frozen chicken breast for this recipe. Cooking time may need to be increased a bit but I have used frozen chicken breast and it turned out delicious. Once the chicken is cooked, remove from the soup and shred the chicken.

Add the chicken back to the soup and serve.

What to Serve with Chicken and Veggie Crockpot Soup?

  • French Bread Make some toasty garlic bread for the perfect side with this soup.
  • BreadsticksThese garlic cheese bread sticks are perfect dipping into your soup. This also allows you to get the very last drop of the soup.
  • Roasted Vegetables – Roast some broccoli or asparagus for a tasty side with this soup.

Can I prepare ahead of time?

Yes, this soup is perfect to be made ahead of time. There is little prep work that needs to be done. That is why we like using frozen or canned vegetables for an easy dump and cook recipe.

If I am serving this for a crowd, you can prepare ahead of time and place in the refrigerator or freeze. Then when you are ready to serve, pour back into the slow cooker and serve after heated thoroughly.

Recipe Tips:

  • Chicken – Before placing the chicken in the slow cooker, we recommend dicing it up. But you can put the chicken in whole and then shred it once it is done cooking.
  • Dutch Oven – If you prefer you can make this chicken soup in a Dutch oven on your stove top. Cooking soup in a pot is an easy way to make this soup.

Chicken Soup Recipe Variations:

  • Chicken – We used chicken breast for this recipe. But you can also use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken to make this soup.
  • Vegetables – Feel free to change the vegetables in this recipe. We used frozen but you can use fresh vegetables. Onions, carrots and celery combined with the other ingredients make for a delicious soup.
  • Diced Tomatoes – You can mix in diced tomatoes instead of crushed tomatoes.
  • Change the Seasoning – Instead of using an Italian Seasoning blend, you can mix the soup with fresh herbs. You can also add in olive oil.

How to Store Chicken Soup Leftovers:

Store your leftover chicken soup in individual containers and place in the fridge. This soup will stay fresh for about 4 days. We think the soup taste even better the next day as the ingredients really marinate together.

How to Freeze Chicken Vegetable Soup:

This soup is perfect to freeze before you cook it. Simply place all ingredients in a freezer bag and freeze until your ready to eat. Then the day that you are ready to eat it, you can place the frozen ingredients in the instant pot for a quick dinner.

Another idea is to freeze after you cook it. Then you can reheat it for a quick dinner. We love easy meals like this so we can get healthy dinner on the table so we can enjoy family time.

It is also great to put the cooked soup in individual containers for a quick lunch. Learn how to freeze soup has been a game changer in my house. Now I usually make a double batch on purpose to have to extra to freeze.

Easy Chicken and Vegetable Soup Recipe:

This soup is the perfect soup to warm up to on a cold day. It is loaded with delicious ingredients that can be changed to what you have on hand.

Serve this soup with your favorite crusty bread for an easy weeknight meal.

    5 stars
    Do you think the potatoes could be easily replaced with a couple of cans of white northern beams? If so, when is the best time to add them and does it change (shorten) the cooking time since we wouldn’t need to cook the potatoes?

    I truly wish all who write recipes would learn that a STALK of celery and a RIB of celery are not the same!

    Six STALKS of celery vs 6 RIBS of celery? There’s a huge difference!

    6 “STALKS” of celery would be used in a mess hall, perhaps intended for a big Army! Six ” RIBS” of celery would perhaps be intended making a recipe for a family!

    A “STALK” of celery is the entire bunch of celery, looks just like it did when harvested from the ground (minus most of the ground dirt.)

    A ” RIB” of celery is just one long reed of the celery “STALK!”
