  • slow cooker


  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 can diced tomatoes 14.5 oz
  • 1 can San Marzano crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 chicken breasts about 1 lb
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 8-10 basil leaves torn or cut in chiffonade


  • Set the slow cooker to HIGH.
  • Heat some oil in the slow cooker and add the onions and garlic to it. Sauté for just 2 mins or so.
  • Add in the red pepper flakes, oregano, salt and pepper and mix well.
  • Add both the tomatoes and mix everything well.
  • Add stock and place the chicken breasts in the tomato-stock mix.
  • Close the crockpot and let it cook on high for 4 hrs.
  • Once done, take the chicken breasts out of the slow cooker and shred to pieces.
  • Add this back to the slow cooker and add the cream to the soup.
  • Add chopped basil and mix well.
  • Serve hot.



  • I use canned tomatoes in this recipe, as with all my tomato soup recipes. I use canned chopped tomatoes and San Marzano crushed tomatoes. You can substitute the canned chopped tomatoes with fresh tomatoes if you want, but I will keep the San Marzano tomatoes to give that extra depth of flavor.
  • It is a one pot meal in itself. Adding some rustic bread on the side is a choice if you have a very hungry bunch.
