Slow Cooker Chicken Mushroom Tortellini Soup: a creamy, comforting cream of mushroom soup with tender bites of chicken, cheesy tortellini, fresh spinach and topped with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
Slow Cooker Chicken Mushroom Tortellini Soup
If you’re a big fan of cream of mushroom soup (which I am) then you’ll love this recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Mushroom Tortellini Soup! It’s filled with lots of mushrooms that are eventually pureed to make the base of the soup. I used cremini mushrooms but white button mushrooms would work just as well. I also decided to bulk up the soup with some chicken. I decided to go with boneless skinless chicken thighs but you can also use breasts for this recipe. The chicken breasts will stay tender because they’ll be totally enveloped in liquid while cooking. After the mushrooms, chicken and broth have slow cooked all day I added in a bag of frozen tortellini and some spinach. Let the tortellini cook on high for a few minutes and voila! The soup is done.

I love soup in the slow cooker! Here are some of my favorite crockpot soup recipes (they’re also some of the most popular recipes on my site):
What Slow Cooker Did You Use?
For this recipe I used my Kitchenaid 6-Quart Slow Cooker. I prefer this slow cooker over almost every other slow cooker because it cooks evenly and low. It also has a medium setting as well as the normal low and high settings that other slow cookers have.
