Creamy Tomato Soup with Chicken

Last updated: March 2022

A deliciously savory soup that's creamy without the cream. It uses light coconut milk to add a silky texture minus the coconut flavor. Serve this up along side a large green salad for a perfect soup and salad combo for lunch or dinner.


  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (frozen is works too)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 (14oz) can diced tomatoes (with their juices)
  • 1 (8oz) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (4oz) can diced green chilies
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup (8 oz) Organic Light Coconut Milk (approx 1/2 can)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

Makes 6


  1. In a Slow Cooker, add chicken breasts to the bottom.
  2. Over the chicken, add in chopped onion, garlic, diced tomatoes with their juices, tomato sauce, green chilies, Italian Seasoning and dried Thyme. Shake the can of Coconut milk well before using. Add coconut milk, salt and water.
  3. Add red pepper flakes if you like a little spice (adjust amount to your liking) or leave them out.
  4. Cook on HIGH for 4-5 hours or on low setting for 8 hours.
  5. Remove the chicken breasts and shred them with two forks or simply cut them into strips if you prefer.
  6. Stir soup and then return chicken to the Slow Cooker.
  7. Serve hot in a large mug or soup cup.

Notes: Light coconut milk can be found in a can on the Natural or International food aisle of your grocery store. Store any unused coconut milk in an airtight container in the fridge for another use or double this recipe and store leftovers in freezer-safe plastic storage bags for a quick meal later in the month.
