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!

What to Do

- Roughly cut your onion into quarters or sixths and place on top of the sweet potatoes.

I love any meal that involves dumping things into a crockpot. The colors and textures in this soup look so nice! Thanks for sharing, Leah 🙂
Totally agree with you about easy crock pot meals! Who doesn’t enjoy dinner being ready as soon as you walk in the door? 🙂
This looks delicious! And who doesn’t love an easy crock pot recipe? Saving this!
Thanks, Chelsey! This is one of those meals that’s so customizable based on what you have around the house – gotta love that!
Easy crock pot recipe AND gluten free??? With family members that have Celiac, I am SUPER excited about this!! 😀 Great recipe Leah!
Yay, I hope your Celiac family members enjoy this!
That soup looks delicious! And anything with shredded chicken is a winner with my kids! Thanks for passing that along!
Thanks, Joan. I’m convinced I need to have leftover shredded chicken on hand at all times – it’s just so versatile!
This is another of your great recipes Leah! love the chicken 🙂
Thanks, Ingrid. It’s a great dish while we’re still waiting for the weather to turn to Spring!
I love your spin on chicken soup. I don’t eat pasta so I am always looking for other veggies to add to my chicken soup!
You could definitely load this one up with veggies! Next time I’m thinking about adding asparagus tips and celery!
I love this take on chicken soup–I can never turn down a good bowl of soup!
Thanks, Julia. Soup is perfect comfort food!
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!
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!
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!!
