Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Parm Soup
I’m pretty much the biggest fan of tomato soup ever. There’s just something about a creamy soup that has the acidity from tomatoes that bites through and brings so much flavor. There’s also the dipping that happens with tomato soup. Dipping grilled cheese into tomato soup is my absolute favorite.
This Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Parm Soup is like dinner in a bowl. It has the tomato base but it also has a lot of heartiness thanks to the chicken and pasta and cheese. We served ours with a toasted buttered baguette. It helped with the crispiness factor since chicken parm usually has that breaded crust over the chicken. Your whole family will love this soup!
A few notes about the recipe:
Pasta: the pasta will get more and more bloated as the soup sits. If there are leftovers it will suck up all the liquid. If this bothers you then you can cook the pasta until al dente on the stove top and then add a little pasta into each bowl of soup and store it separately in the refrigerator for the leftovers. I choose to throw the pasta into the crockpot uncooked with everything else. It helps to thicken the soup and I don’t mind the pasta getting a little bloated.
Crushed tomatoes: I love using crushed tomatoes in this soup because they give the soup body and flavor. Crushed tomatoes aren’t chunky like diced tomatoes so kids will like them better too. No need to puree your soup when you use crushed tomatoes.

What Slow Cooker Did You Use?
To make Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Parm Soup I used my Ninja Auto-iQ 6 Quart Slow Cooker.* My favorite feature of this slow cooker is that it has a stove top function. This is perfect for sauteing or browning before you slow cook. This slow cooker has four manual cooking functions: slow cook, stove top sear/Saute, steam, and bake.
