This simple and easy crockpot soup recipe is perfect any night of the week. A great spin on traditional chicken soup!
The other day my son decides he wants to educate my daughter on Pokemon cards after she expressed her desire to trade them. He in fact told her that she had to write a report on the different type of Pokemon cards that he had in order to educate her and allow her to begin trading. She worked for an hour, researching and writing about those Pokemon characters so she could figure out how to trade the cards.
And what does he do when she turns it over to him?
Luckily not everything in life is so difficult, like this crockpot chicken tortellini soup recipe. This soup has got some really good herbs and spices to give it a hearty flavor. It's the perfect weeknight meal!
- 8 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (uncooked or frozen)
- 4 medium carrots, sliced into bite sized coins
- 2 celery ribs, sliced into bite sized pieces
- 1 envelope (⅓ cup) onion soup mix (we found ours from Frontier Naturals)
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 ½ tsp parsley flakes
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
- ½ tsp poultry seasoning
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 ½ cups frozen cheese tortellini (Whole Foods has a storebrand cheese tortellini)
- In a large freezer bag, assemble all ingredients minus the tortellini. Label and freeze. To reheat, allow ingredients to thaw overnight in refrigerator than follow the instructions below.
- To prepare: Place all ingredients (minus the cheese tortellini) in crockpot. Allow to cook on low for 6-8 hours. After chicken has cooked, remove chicken from crockpot, shred, then return to crockpot, stirring to combine.
- Cook tortellini according to package directions. Once cooked, stir into soup mixture. (Optional: Add the tortellini to the crockpot the last fifteen minutes of cooking). Serve soup with rolls.

Love that this recipe is slow cooker and freezer friendly, makes my life a whole lot easier!
But you cannot freeze the tortellini , so how do you keep them fresh if you want to put in freezer the soup ?
Hi Georgette, i use frozen tortellini. We can buy it in the store. I add it to the slow cooker the last 15 minutes of cooking. Thanks!
You can make the soup part and leave out the tortellini. If you are going to freeze it in portions you can just reheat the soup and then add the desired amount of tortellini. Hope that helps!
