True story: slow cooker chicken artichoke soup is my lunch at least three days a week. No, seriously. The Whole Foods near Chic HQ makes it and I happen to think it’s the most delicious thing on this planet. I have it so often I finally decided I had to know how to make it for myself. And then I realized, wait a minute I literally employ a chef who could figure this out for me!! 

So once again, Jonathan is totally knocking it out of the park for me with this incredible recipe and you guys are going to die. As in, die because slow cooker chicken artichoke soup is your new favorite food too. Can’t wait to hear what y’all think! 

how to make soup in slow cooker

Start by placing the onion, garlic, bell pepper, spinach, artichoke, carrots, celery, salt and pepper in the slow cooker. You can throw them all in raw, or cook them in a skillet with a tablespoon of oil for about 5 to 8 minutes. Then transfer the cooked veggies to the bowl of your slow cooker.

Toss in the chicken stock, sherry cooking wine, lemon juice, chicken, and fresh herbs. To make this even easier for you, use store-bought rotisserie chicken!

Cover and let cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for about 3 to 4 hours. Stir every once in a while to ensure that nothing sticks to the bowl.

Meanwhile, as the soup cooks, before the time is up, cook up a pot of rice on the stove according to package directions. I used an arborio rice. About 30 minutes before the soup is done, stir in the cooked rice and parsley. Cook for the remaining 30 minutes.

Give the slow cooker chicken artichoke soup a taste and adjust the seasoning according to your preferred taste, adding more salt and pepper as needed.

The soup will get better tasting the longer it sits, so the great news is that if you make it and have leftovers, it will taste even better the next day.

    I went to the store – with a list – and got everything but the artichokes! Just my luck. Next week!

    When I saw this I couldn’t get it off my mind! Made it for dinner and my husband went nuts. He kept saying over and over how incredible it was. He even said it was the best soup he’s ever had! This is a keeper.
