Slow Cooker Chicken Tortellini Soup is a fun twist on the traditional chicken noodle soup.
It’s the perfect comfort food to make in the crock pot.
You did it! Another Thanksgiving dinner for the books. I don’t know about you but after Thanksgiving Day, the last thing I want to do is think about cooking, for at least a week! But because my family still likes to eat, which means I still have to cook. That is when some easy and simple dinner ideas come in handy and I’ve got one for you today.
I hope your slow cooker came in handy for your Thanksgiving dinner and maybe you even tried a few new recipes from my Holiday Slow Cooker Cookbook. I’d love to hear if you did! Well, since you have that slow cooker out, let’s let it help make our life easier and help in that Thanksgiving recovery. If you don’t have the slow cooker out, get it out!
After a heavy meal like Thanksgiving, I love lighter and simpler meals for the week after and soup is the perfect solution. Chicken Tortellini Soup is a fun twist on the classic favorite, chicken noodle soup. Instead of noodles I’ve used cheese tortellini. You could even use leftover turkey instead of chicken for this soup if you’d like, just leave out the chicken breasts and add in your shredded turkey instead.
This slow cooker chicken tortellini soup is a complete meal. You’ve got your protein, your veggies and your starch. I do like to add in some nice crusty French bread which is perfect for dipping up the extra broth out of the bowl!
My favorite kitchen items I used to make SLOW COOKER CHICKEN TORTELLINI SOUP:
SLOW COOKER – My favorite one is the classic, the Rival CrockPot. In fact, I love it so much I own three of them. Two 6 qt and one 4 qt.
CROCK POT LINER BAGS – These liner bags are a life saver and make clean up so much easier and faster! Stock up on them!
SHREDDER CLAWS – These make shredded pork or chicken a breeze!
