Crockpot Creamy Chicken Spinach Soup Recipe

My Crock-pot officially bit the dust.  The first week I bought it (more than a year ago), the handles from the side broke off, and the knob to pull the lid off also broke off.  I kept it though, and 6 months later, the ceramic pot got a huge crack down the center.  I still kept it and used an oven bag to line the crock-pot every time I used it.  Then, a few days ago, it no longer would turn on! Booooo.  I thought I’d never buy another Crock-Pot brand again, but then Costco had a sale.  A new Crock-pot for $29, and it came with a little “Mini-dipper”.  Like a little baby crockpot for warming up dips and such.  I just loved the idea, so I bought it.

Making this right now. Can’t wait! What is the purpose of heating the vegetables for a few minutes before adding the broth? Also, using frozen spinach instead. Hopefully, it will he as good as yours looks.

Well, I wanted to brown up the potatoes a little, so they wouldn’t be all mushy.. I don’t know if it made a difference. Ha ha. You could totally skip that step and I’m sure it would taste the same!

I really like this recipe. Its simple and looks really good. I womder how it would taste with soy milk (since we have dairy allergies here). Hmm does the ranch dressing mix have milk in it?

My ranch dressing only has herbs. You can make your own using
1 teaspoon dried parsley
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme

Good luck!

I have a crock pot that doesn’t work 🙁 my question is, which one do you have or do you recommend? $29 is a great steal!! Thank you 🙂

I have a crockpot brand slow cooker, but only because of the price. I don’t think it’s that great. The last one I had, the handles broke off as soon as I brought it home. But for the price, I just kept it without handles…lol

To make it easier, do I have to precook the chicken? I was thinking I can just add it straight to the soup and it’ll cook in the 3-4 hours.

This looks quite good. I currently have a mostly healthy version of orange chicken cooking in my crockpot. I hope it turns out good as I’ve never done it before!

can u cook it on low for 6 hours instead? I usually like to cook it longer in crock pot if possible…. also, does the chicken have to be precooked, or since im hopi g to put it in for 6 to 8 hours I can juut put the Chicken in from the beginning?
thanks

@jen- Yes- you can cook it for longer for sure.. and I guess you don’t have to pre-cook the chicken. In fact, if I do it again, I probably won’t. What’s the point of precooking it, unless you wanted to sear or brown it first. Hmmm.. Let me know if you try it!

Hi Meghann,
We haven’t analyzed the recipes we post for the blog. The only recipes we’ve analyzed are the ones we post in the meal plan member pages. You can use a tool like nutritiondata.self.com however and enter the ingredients and it will give you the calories, fat, carbs, protein, etc.


This was way better than I thought it’d be! I was a little wary at first but it was a hit with the whole family. It could use a little more seasonings in my opinion, but overall it was an awesome soup
