Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore Soup

This flavorful chicken and vegetable soup is easy, delicious and healthy. Plus it's all made in a slow cooker while you do something else. Top with cheese for a perfect dinner on a cold night.

       This simple Italian inspired chicken soup comes together in a slow cooker leaving you free to go about your day. Stir in some pasta about a half an hour before it's time to eat and dinner is ready! It will fill your family's bellies and warm them right up. Nobody will have to know how easy it was to make, that can be our little secret!



      As the weather cools down, soups become a welcome sight at the dinner table. Well, they do for me anyway.  
 
     My husband doesn't think soup qualifies as a meal. He needs at least a grilled cheese or something to go with it to make it count as a meal. 
 
     How do you feel about soup? Do you love it or could you leave it? 
 
     If you are a soup lover, or just need some more simple recipes in your arsenal, this is a great recipe to have. It's basically just chop, dump and run. 
 
      Your crock pot will cook the broth filled with tender chicken and veggies while you go about your day. When you get home add some pasta and it'll be ready in no time.

      We like using a whole wheat rotini in this soup. It adds that little extra bit of fiber. 
 
      You can use whatever you like best. Just be sure it is a pasta shape that fits well on your spoon! 
 
      MiMi originally shared this recipe with us back in 2017. I thought it was time to update the pictures, printable recipe card and add a video of LD and I putting it together.  
 
      We hope you enjoy the refresh and the reminder to make a batch soon!

  I know, I know.  This probably seems a bit out of character.  

    I mean it's not a big chocolate cake or anything.  But as unbelievable as it may be, we do eat real food every day around here.

Shockingly that includes vegetables, fruits and healthy soups.  Because it's good for us and I do have jeans to fit into.  I mean, priorities, right?!

       So on a busy day when we want something flavorful, healthy and easy this fits the bill.  A few minutes of chopping and prepping and you are off.  

   Even better, chop and prep the night before.  Then all you have to do is wake up, dump everything in the slow cooker and go on about your day.

     The best part is coming home to dinner that is almost ready to go.  Throw in some pasta, crank'er up and kick off your shoes.

   Before you know it you'll have a hot bowl of soup in your hand and a smile on your face.  Just like that!   
 
   The best part is the flavors and the pasta are kid friendly too.  It is a dinner everyone will love without any fuss!

Easy substitutions or changes


You can easily add more vegetables to this soup if you would like. Chopped zucchini would be delicious, just add it at the same time as the chicken and peppers.

For a more pasta Faggioli feel, add a can of white beans to the mix. They would be a fabulous addition!

More great soup recipes 


For another simple pasta filled soup, try taco soup in the instant pot. It's flavorful and ready to hit the table in almost no time at all!  
 
For a great creamy slow cooker soup try crock pot cheddar broccoli soup. It gives you that cheesy comfort we all need sometimes.  
 
Another fabulous and filling meal is ham and beans in the slow cooker. Whip up some corn muffins and you'll really be in good shape!

  2. Hi Carlee, cooking soup in the slow cooker is my favourite way of cooking it. There is nothing nicer than walking into the house and knowing food is hot and ready to eat. And I think slow cooked soup tastes so much nicer.

  5. I bet this could be cooked in an instant pot too, may be with the chicken precooked. It sounds good. Thanks for visiting Family Joy Blog linkup again.

    1. I really need to get on the instant pot bandwagon... the issue is I already have so many kitchen toys and only so much storage!
