Tip for packing Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Soup:

This soup is also great reheated for lunches. Whether you are packing for your lunch at work or the kids at school, it’s even better the next day.

I think the flavors have even more time to blend. We use a thermos to pack the soup in and keeps it nice and hot until ready to eat.

Head on over to Amazon where you will find small thermos containers on sale for as low as $10. Don’t skimp on the thermos.

Those plastic ones do not work well. Get a nice thermos on sale and it will last you for years.

Trust me! I have learned to buy a good one from the start.

It saves me money in the long run. You can also learn how to keep chicken nuggets warm in school lunches.

    Being a widower I’m always on the lookout for easy, tasty recipes. This one is a winner. I froze individual servings without pasta. I unfreeze these packets, add a little broth, some egg noodles and have a tasty, filling meal when combined with a corn muffin!
    Thanks from a guy who needs all the help he can get in the kitchen!

    Hi. I’m Sicilian and just saw this recipe. It is very similar to my Greatgrandmother who was born in 1880 in Palermo. I remember helping her make it when I was 10. Even at the age of 85 you would still find her cooking up a storm. Since there were no grocery stores when she,my Grandmother and my Mom had to use what was available on our Olive farm. Once a week we would meet up with the other farmers and each would share with the others. We’d give our Olive Oil and swap for Parmesano Reggiano Cheese or other things we needed. Reading about you and this recipe brought back so many incredible memories. We still own our farm. I’ve got 6 kids between 39 and 49 years old who also were born there. Before Covid 19, we’d make sure one of us was on the farm. Our kids who are all working for Doctors without Borders have been stranded in foreign countries all over the world. There’s plenty of work in each country due to Covid19. They used to always come home at Christmas, my husband and my birthdays and spend at least days with us. It’s hard on us not being able to see them in person and hug them. Since each of them loves to cook especially using a crock pot I’ll be sharing your awesome site. Saving money and yet the food tastes great, is exactly what our familia needs. Grazie for you sharing all the tips and recipes. God bless Robin Love in Houston Texas.

  10. Rita Chambers says:

    I love your receipes

  11. Kellie says:

    How much diced tomatoes? Doesn’t say what size can

  12. Dawn Conklin says:

    Easy is always for me 🙂 In a couple months it will be fall again (my favorite time of year) and time for soups! Tho at least with the crockpot you won’t be heating up the house if you were to make it in the middle of summer.

    I will definitely be trying this, we like homemade chicken noodle soup and this sounds like a great one to try! Perfect for when they are back to school with all the sports and fun stuff that makes life crazy.

  13. Carrie says:

    I usually use a 12 oz box. Thank you!

  14. Lynette says:
