Creamy Chicken Tomato Soup {Slow Cooker}

Apr 17

Hello hello! Boy, am I happy to be writing for you! Guess what I’ve been doing while I’ve been away the past week or so? Did you guess working? Then, you’re right!

I love my job– love it! But I knew I needed to get back in the kitchen when the hubby made us a frozen pizza for two days in a row. However, still busy at work, so cooking a complicated meal wasn’t in the cards. Enter the crock pot!

I slightly adapted a recipe from Caramel Potatoes for a delicious and hearty creamy chicken tomato soup. It makes six to eight servings, so now we have lots of leftovers to avoid frozen pizza, at least for a couple of days!

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes (do not drain)
  • 1 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 3 oz water (half can of tomato paste)
  • 2 tbs Italian seasoning
  • 1 tbs dried basil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy


Add and mix together all ingredients except for the chicken. Then, add chicken.  Cover and cook on low for 7-9 hours or on high for 4-6 hours (or until chicken shreds easily).

Shred chicken in crock pot, or remove chicken to shred and return it to the crockpot. Keep warm and serve.

    Crock pot recipes are the best. This sounds like a chickeny chili. I think my kids would like this. I will definitely be giving this a try. Thanks for the tip.

    This looks so very yummy! Plus, it goes in the old Crockpot :) The only thing I might change would be to add some nice Garam Masala or Madras Curry instead of the Italian Seasoning. Thanks so much for the recipe!

    • Elizabeth Apr 25 at 9:33 pm Reply

      Those seasonings would definitely add to the soup. Adding it to my ingredient list for next time!

    This was ready in the blink of an eye and made the house smell delicious when it was cooking. I added a couple noodles (cavatappi) for some texture and look forward to taking advantage of the leftovers tomorrow.
