Creamy tomato soup with plenty of herb flavor, spinach, shredded chicken, and gnocchi. Throw it all into the slow cooker for a super simple and tasty dinner!
I’ll admit guys, that I wasn’t quite sure what to call this soup I made up earlier this week. I had ideas of a creamy tomato soup with chicken, spinach, and gnocchi, but thought that made a ridiculous title. The thought of Chicken Florentine came to me, but I actually had to google it to see if I was on the right track.
Regardless, the most important things you need to know about this soup is that it’s:
- SUPER EASY!!
You’re 2 favorite things!! So I basically threw in everything into the slow cooker without any prep work. Like the easiest dinner ever. I did wait to throw in the Gnocchi, spinach, and Boursin Cheese toward the end, but everything else cooks together at the beginning.
Out comes this deliciously creamy perfect soup:
What’s not to love?? Serve alongside a salad or crusty bread and enjoy!!

Slow Cooker Tomato Chicken Florentine Soup with Gnocchi
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 28 oz crushed tomatoes
- 14 oz whole tomatoes

- 1 tbsp dried basil

Place chicken breast inside your slow cooker. Top with tomatoes, broth, basil, garlic, and butter. Set your slow cooker to low for 4 hours.
At the 3 hour mark, add gnocchi, Boursin Cheese, and spinach and stir. Shred chicken with a fork. Cook for another hour.
Serve immediately. Top with extra spinach and maybe parmesan cheese.

This was so, so delicious and indeed easy. Even I didn’t muck it up! Were the whole tomatoes supposed to kind of melt away? Mine did not so I ended up chopping them up after cooking. Loving these recipes and grateful for all the work you put into this site!
This recipe does not work. After 3 hours, the chicken is raw and the tomatoes are just floating around whole. Do you test your recipes? I didn’t think 4 hours on low sounded right for chicken, I should have known better. Guess we are having pizza tonight and I’m spending another $25 to replace the lost meal we would have had later in the week.
Sorry it didn’t work out in the time stated. And yes, I do test my recipes. Many times. This is one that I make often, and the instructions above are on point with my slow cooker. I have the all-clad. Realize that many slow cookers might operate a little differently. I do not think this is a waste. In fact, just let it cook longer and it will be ready to go!
This is my favorite soup recipe. It’s so easy and delicious. I cook it in the instant pot. Love your recipes!
Thank you, Ashley!! Love to hear that!
