Easy Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Curry Soup

Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Curry Soup

 

This is the final recipe in our Slow Cooker Soup series.  I have loved this series!

My goal with each recipe I’ve shared has been to put the ingredients in the crockpot and let them cook.  I didn’t want to have to pre-cook any meats for this series.  That’s the one step that will stop me from making something if I’m in a big hurry.

I stumbled on a method of cooking meat with bones in it right in the soups.  This has worked for several ham based soups and also chicken soups.  And it’s the method I used for this soup too.

Cooking the chicken with bones right in the soup gives the broth a rich flavor.  It also simplifies the recipe too.

The original recipe for this soup comes from Modern Mrs. Darcy.  Anne is one of my favorite bloggers to read.  She blogs on all kinds of interesting topics and she’s a fellow Kentuckian too.

I changed up the soup recipe from the way Anne fixed it.  She made a homemade broth (great idea, but one I rarely take time for).  She also used chicken that had been pre-cooked and took time to sauté the vegetables.  All of those steps make wonderful soup, but I wanted a simpler version.

And I think I found success!  A simple Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Curry Soup with homemade taste that only takes 10 minutes to prep.

Chicken, Avocado, Lime, and Cilantro Soup

Chicken, Avocado, Lime and Cilantro Soup

I was sick with a terrible sinus infection. And I just wanted homemade chicken noodle soup.

The problem was that I didn’t have any of the ingredients I needed. And there was no chance I could make it to the store.

So I looked and my fridge at what I had and this is what I came up with. It was so delicious! And my whole family ate it and they said it was delicious as well. Home run!

Here’s to using what you’ve got in the pantry!  This ingredient list is simple:   [Read more...]

Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo Soup

My sister-in-law gave me the idea for Chicken Alfredo Soup.  She said she’d eaten it before and it was good, but not as Alfredo-y as she wished.  The recipe she’d seen used a jar of Alfredo sauce.

Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo SoupI decided to make a homemade version that didn’t use the jar of sauce.  This soup has chicken, penne pasta, and lots of Parmesan.  It’s a delicious take on classic chicken and noodle soup.

But it isn’t as Alfredo-y as you’d imagine the soup to be.  I think that may be an impossible thing to ask of a soup, because if you thicken it and make it just like the sauce, then you don’t have soup any more.  You’ve got sauce.

I almost named it something different, like Chicken Parmesan Soup, but that’s a different dish and I already have a Chicken Parmesan Soup.  So despite the fact that the name might be a little misleading, I’m keeping it.

And this soup is definitely worth making.  It’s warm, comforting and creamy.  And there’s no pre-cooking needed.  Everything goes into the slow cooker, although the milk and pasta get held out to near the end of the cooking time.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Ham

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with ham

 

I love split pea soup, but it’s not one that I make often.  It’s best made when you’ve got a ham bone available.  But since I figured out a great work-around for that with my Ham and Bean Soup, I decided to use the same technique for this recipe.

This soup meets all the requirements for the Slow Cooker Soup Series.  It’s assembly only, taking only minutes to get everything started in the slow cooker.

I was afraid that my kids wouldn’t eat it.  The color is light green (even though the photo shows it to be more yellow).  Plus the name isn’t very kid-friendly.  However, they all really liked it and even went back for seconds.

Slow Cooker Chicken Cock-A-Leekie Soup

Chicken Cock-a-leekie Soup

 

I recently spied a recipe for Chicken Cock-a-Leekie Soup on Pinterest.  But when I followed the link, it didn’t take me to a recipe.  Don’t you hate that?

But, the name had me curious, so I started searching for more about the recipe.  I found out that Chicken Cock-a-Leekie Soup is a traditional Scottish recipe.  I’ve got a thing for Scotland recently.  It started with discovering the TV show Monarch of the Glen on Netflix, which takes place in Scotland.  The sense of place in that show is so prominent, it’s like one of the characters.  Every scene is beautiful.

Scotland seems to be popping up every where I look lately.  We’ve even got a Scottish singer coming to our church on Sunday.  I’m ridiculously excited about that.  I am fairly introverted, but I really want to talk to this man.  I’m afraid he might think I’m a bit crazy if I tell him I’m infatuated with his country.  That I’ve watched the TV show and made the soup.

Onto the soup…It seems there are a lot of ways to make this traditional dish.  Some recipes have rice, some have barley.  All of them have chicken, leeks and prunes.

Yes, prunes in soup.  I wasn’t too sure about that myself.  I found recipes that cooked the prunes in the soup and others that used prunes as a topping.   I decided to go the topping route.  That way, if someone didn’t like the thought of it, they could pass.

The soup itself is a basic chicken soup that is comforting and nourishing.  Surprisingly, the prunes paired beautifully with the flavors in the soup.  The rich, sweet taste of the prunes complimented the more savory flavors of chicken and leeks.  Even if you don’t think you’ll like the prunes, please give the topping a try. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.  Plus, you’ll feel authentically Scottish while eating it.

Slow Cooker Smoked Sausage and Sauerkraut Soup

Slow Cooker Smoked Sausage and Sauerkraut Soup

 

Don’t leave me yet!  Even if you’re not too sure about the sauerkraut, don’t pass judgment on this Smoked Sausage and Sauerkraut Soup yet.

I managed to feed this to my family and everyone ate it.  And they liked it.

I told them it was German soup.  I never mentioned the sauerkraut.  My pickiest eater asked what it was and I told him cabbage.  He thought there was a bit too much of it and picked around it, but he does that with a lot of things.  He liked the rest of the soup though.  It didn’t hurt that I served it with pretzel rolls.

This soup fits perfectly with our Slow Cooker Soup series.  All the ingredients go into the crockpot and that’s it.  Several hours later it’s ready to eat.  It’s hearty, filling and wonderful with pretzel rolls or hot cornbread.

Philly Cheese Steak Soup in the Slow Cooker

Philly Cheese Steak Soup

This Philly Cheese Steak Soup couldn’t be easier.  Although it doesn’t taste exactly like a cheese steak (that could be weird), it does have the flavors of the famous sandwich.

Or at least the flavors most people think of when they think about cheese steaks.  The real deal that you find in Philadelphia most often has cheese whiz as the cheese.  And they are so, so good!

This soup combines beef, onions, green peppers and mushroom soup in a warm broth.  I topped it with shredded Swiss cheese.  And I toasted French bread topped with Swiss cheese to serve along side the piping hot bowls.

It takes about 5 whole minutes to set up the slow cooker for this recipe.  So easy!  Here’s what you’ll need:   [Read more...]

Slow Cooker Carrot Soup

Crock-Pot-Carrot-Soup-2-pictures

 

I’ve never had carrot soup before, but this recipe from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures looks great.  Lynn toned down the carrot flavor a bit by using some potatoes in the soup too.

This is an easy soup to make.  It meets my requirements for this series, meaning you can put all the ingredients in the crockpot, turn it on and go.  No pre-cooking necessary.

Crawfish Chowder in the Slow Cooker

This recipe come from an Eat at Home reader.  Lynn from This Day Has Great Potential emailed me to say she has a fantastic recipe for the Slow Cooker Soup series.

Lynn says this is the easiest kind of soup to make.  All of the ingredients go in the slow cooker and then you turn it on.  Can’t get easier than that!

I have never had crawfish before.  The soup calls for frozen crawfish tails.  Lynn says you can find them in the frozen section of most grocery stores.  She found hers at Save-A-Lot.  She explains, “ You do absolutely nothing to them.  I ran the frozen package under warm water enough to loosen them up to dump into my pot.  But really could have thrown them in as-is.  That’s why I thought I’d share with you.  It goes right along with the series you ran recently.  No preparation or cooking anything beforehand.”   [Read more...]
