Slow Cooker: Chunky Chicken Soup (GF)

When people hear “chicken soup,” I think they automatically think chicken noodle soup.  If that’s the case with you, let me tell you right off the bat that there are no noodles in this soup.  Why?  Because it’s gluten-free!  Don’t worry though because this soup is still super hearty thanks to the sweet potato, corn, and shredded chicken.


Trust me, I highly recommend making this heart warming soup before spring is officially here and we all start grilling and making light salads.  I’ve been battling a little cold (thanks to the shifting seasons!) but this soup revived me and really hit the spot.  Feeling under the weather yourself?  This one’s for you!

Be prepared for a large crock pot full of soup which makes enough to serve the whole family or if there’s only one or two of you, you’ll have leftovers for the whole week!


Chunky Chicken Soup (GF)

Inspired by No Sugar Sweet Life

Serves 6-8


  • 1.5lbs chicken, cooked and shredded
  • 1-2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 32oz chicken broth
  • optional: 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, pinch of crushed red pepper

What to Do

  1. Cube your sweet potatoes and place in the bottom of your slow cooker.
  2. Roughly cut your onion into quarters or sixths and place on top of the sweet potatoes.
  3. Add your precooked and shredded chicken, corn, tomatoes and chicken broth.  (If you’re adding any optional seasonings, mix them into the chicken broth before you add the chicken broth to the crock pot).
  4. Cook on low for 3-4 hours, or until potatoes are fork tender.

  1. Leah, I might actually like this better than chicken noodle soup! I love sweet potatoes – my mom used to make a sweet soup out of it as a kid. I can just imagine how delicious this tastes.

    • Mmm, I love sweet potatoes too! I’ve never tried making a sweet potato soup but a sweet version definitely sounds delicious. I hope you enjoy this soup!

  2. Sounds like a comforting and healthy meal for a cold night 🙂 I was thinking of you recently because a friend of mine was telling me about how she used to follow a Paleo diet and how great she felt while she was eating that way…made me think I need to go through some of your paleo recipes and give it a try too! I don’t think I could do 100% paleo, but maybe some changes here and there would be good. Hope you’re having a great week, Leah!

  3. I love how easy this is to make, perfect for when you really aren’t feeling well and don’t have much energy. Brilliant idea to add in sweet potato and corn, this must have tasted lovely!!
