How do you make crock pot chicken vegetable soup?
Ok, let’s great started with how to make chicken soup in slow cooker. I promise, it’s not hard and thanks to the crock pot, you don’t have the watch it. Just dump it all in and go about your day. Now that is my type of recipe!
First, place the diced chicken at the bottom of the crock pot. Then combine all of the ingredients in the crockpot.
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.
That’s it. I promised it was easy. 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.
Since the chicken is diced for this recipe, 6 hour on low works perfectly every time to create this delicious soup recipe.
Can you put raw chicken in soup?
Generally, when I prepare this creamy chicken and vegetable soup slow cooker recipe, I use fresh diced chicken as it’s cooks more evenly. However, if you only have frozen chicken available, this can be used in this recipe as well.
I love that you can put frozen chicken or meat in the crock pot to cook as well. I would follow the recipe exactly but after the cook time, I would remove the chicken from the slow cooker, dice or shred the cook chicken based on your preference and then mix in back into the soup prior to serving.
In addition you can use whatever type of chicken that you have for this recipe. You can make chicken thigh soup slow cooker recipe or slow cooker chicken soup whole chicken by using just chicken thighs or an entire chicken in this crock pot soup recipe.
Now to make this crock pot chicken vegetable soup recipe, you are going to need a really good slow cooker:
I have two favorite crock pots. One is the programmable 6 quart crock pot. It is awesome and very nice on the budget. I love that it will seal closed so you can transport it for parties and tailgates.
That means one more less pan to cook for most recipes. This has become my new favorite crock pot just because of that one feature!
Also, since I tend to be a little lazy in the kitchen (are you?), I highly suggest using crock pot liners to make cleaning the crock pot a breeze! These are a lifesaver for our family! Make sure you leave a comment and let us know your favorite slow cooker to use for your favorite recipes.
