Crockpot Chicken Parmesan Soup

Crockpot Chicken Parmesan Soup in a white bowl

One of my favorite ways to shake up a favorite recipe is to turn it into a soup. Like my Loaded Crockpot Hash Brown Potato Soup, which is basically a fully loaded baked potato you can eat with a spoon…or my Hearty Slow Cooker Lasagna Soup, which turns lasagna from a multi-step casserole to an easy Crockpot meal.

So, deep in the chill of February, my thoughts started turning to soup again. What, I wondered, should I turn into a soup this time?

And right away the answer came to me: chicken parmesan.

Soup in a white bowl topped with cheese and bread crumbs

I mean, think about it. This is such a classic Italian meal, with tender chicken drowning in rich marinara sauce and hot, gooey cheese. What could make a more satisfying soup?

Making it in the Crockpot makes it much easier, too. You can put the chicken, tomatoes, and all the seasonings in to cook in the morning, and half an hour before dinner, stir in a cup of pasta. While that’s getting tender, toast some bread crumbs in a skillet to make that nice, crispy topping that a good chicken parm just has to have.

Then dish out this Crockpot Chicken Parmesan Soup, sprinkle the cheese and breadcrumbs on top, and voila! All the flavors of Italy in every spoonful.

  1. The Ingredients and Instructions sections of the Printed Recipe are mixed up and illegible. Please correct and re-port.

    1. Sorry about that Rick. It is all fixed up now!

  2. 5 stars
    Corey, this is probably the 5th recipe I’ve made of yours. You are my go to for EVERYTHING since the Cowboy Caviar and the Chicken Enchilada Dip I made for a family gathering for my twins birthday and the dishes were eaten up to the last bit.

    My husband and I just finished having this Soup for dinner and OMG it is DELICIOUS! So flavorful. So filling. We had 2 servings each lol. And it literally took me under 10 min to prepare everything, put it in the crockpot and I head out for the afternoon, came home to a wonderful smelling home as I walked in the door a few hours later. I love your recipes! Always simple and easy to make and they turn out perfect and yummy every time! You are awesome! 5 Star Recipes- ALL OF THEM! Keep em coming! ❤️🙏🏻

    1. I am so happy to hear how much you loved the soup! Yay! You are so wonderful to take the time to stop by to leave such a sweet comment. 🙂

    Can you cook this on the stove in a stock pot instead of the crockpot?

    1. I haven’t tried that before, but I don’t see why not. Cooking times will differ, so make sure to check that your chicken is cooked through
