Crock Pot Chicken Tortellini Soup is the easiest chicken noodle soup you will ever make! It’s sure to become a fall and winter staple at your house!
I can’t believe I am saying this already, but fall is here, my friends. Summer went by a blur, but we had so much fun, and I’m sure you did too. With the chillier weather, we are having, like today – so rainy and cold, it’s the perfect time to dust off your slow cooker for the best crock pot recipes, especially this slow cooker chicken tortellini soup! It’s an Italian inspired soup that’s at the top of my “yum” list along with creamy chicken florentine.

In my house, we are huge soup fans because they are so versatile, warming and comforting, and are relatively inexpensive to feed any size family. This easy chicken tortellini soup is a go-to recipe we love and cannot get enough of. It’s easy, loaded with shredded chicken, carrots, celery, spices, seasonings, and three-cheese tortellini. It almost reminds me of a chicken noodle soup mom always made for you when you were sick, but this one is even better. It’s all because of the three-cheese tortellini. Hands down one of my favorite comfort food chicken recipes!
For the chicken, you can use boneless chicken breasts or even rotisserie chicken. To keep this soup even easier I used rotisserie chicken, but I will also include the directions on how to use chicken breasts in the recipe. It’s still incredibly easy but it does require a little more time. For the tortellini, my store usually carries tortellini in the deli section, but I couldn’t find it, so I used frozen tortellini. Either will work, and the directions will be the same. If you love soups that include tortellini, I highly recommend trying our one-pot creamy tortellini soup or our one-pot tomato and basil tortellini soup. Both are delicious and very popular!

I have made this several times and it is a hit each time. I just use frozen chicken breast, and throw them in the pot along with everything else and cook on high. I use a bag of frozen tort near the end probably 30 mins before and it turns out great. A new addition to the soup I have added to change it up a bit is a can of red enchilada sauce. It ads a nice little heat and flavor to it if you want to try spicing it up. great recipe, have it down by memory already.
I’m making tomorrow. I bought already cooked pulled chicken. Isn’t 3 hours on high quite a long time for the chicken that’s already cooked? I would think it would come out dry?
Real Housemoms JK says
Hey Terri, I use the precooked shredded chicken as well and the 3 hours works great. If your crockpot runs high then either turn it down or cook for less time. Hope this helps.
Thanks for an amazing recipe! I’ve also been asked for the recipe many times!
What is the serving size?
Jennifer Kimmel says
Hey Kelli! There are 8 servings in this dish. Thanks!
Lynn L says
I made by this & it was delicious however, the tortellini got mushy. What can I do to prevent that?
Aubrey Cota says
If you tried using frozen already and it still turned out mushy, then I would suggest waiting a little longer to add it. It really should only be put in the crockpot about 15 minutes before actually serving it.
Rosalie Watson says
We love this soup! Make it all the time! In fact, I have some in the crockpot right now! Thinking about throwing some spinach in it! Thanks for an amazing recipe! I’ve been asked for the recipe many times!
Aubrey Cota says
Adding spinach or kale are good ways to amp up the recipe, so glad it has worked out so nicely for you!
