Slow Cooker Recipe – Chicken and Mushroom Soup

I’m a bit obsessed with my slow cooker lately!  So I have another Slow Cooker Recipe for you.  This Slow Cooker Chicken and Mushroom Soup is simple to prepare and full of flavor.  It can easily be made into Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Soup as well.

Besides slow cooker meals being convenient, they are also a great way to eat healthy.  Just toss in some chicken, cooking liquid and lots of veggies for a tasty, filling and nutritious meal!

I’ve been participating in a healthy series with some other bloggers that are making positive lifestyle changes.  The major change that I have made is my diet.  I have been eating real foods and cutting most of the processed junk out of my diet . . . Mostly.

Slow Cooker Recipe - Chicken and Mushroom Soup

This Chicken and Mushroom Soup can be made as a plain broth soup {see above photo}.  Or add just a touch of cream for a Creamy Chicken Mushroom Soup {see below photo}.

I enjoyed both versions and can’t say that one was better than the other.  I guess it just depends on your mood.

I love a good party!  I’ve been known to share my delicious creations at THESE awesome parties!



  1. Bring on the cold, I’ll be ready with this soup! I am a big fan of mushroom soup, but I like the added chicken!

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Yeah, all I need now is cold weather! Mushrooms are one {of my many} obsessions. I put then in and on anything I can.

  2. This soup looks super delish and the recipe sounds easy. Lovin’ my new crockpot and always happy to find yummy recipes to make – THANKS!


  3. Holliday Jeremiassen says:

    I love this recipe and it has become a staple in the house. When I have the time I sautee the onion and mushrooms, but sometimes everything gets chopped up and thrown in before I leave for work. I also add chicken and shred it before I serve. Almost always make swiss and provolone grilled cheese on the side.

    Thanks for the recipe!!

  4. the food looks nice
    thank you for the recipe

  5. Shannon says:

    25 oz seems like a lot of ‘shrooms. Is that right?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      I do love my mushrooms! Yes, that is the correct amount. They cook down and it will not seem like that much. But, you can definitely use less if you prefer 🙂
