Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup

4.79 from 14 votes

This hearty soup, while great anytime, is perfect for a fall or winter evening.

Our Slow Cooker Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup has all the classical flavors of Chicken Cordon Bleu in a satisfying soup. We’ve used low-fat Swiss cheese and low-fat milk to skinny it up, but kept butter and flour as a thickener to achieve a silky, creamy texture. Ham, vegetables, and tarragon help to build complex flavors while chicken keeps it high in protein. Most of the work is done in a slow cooker, so you can walk away from it for a while if you have other things to do.

This hearty soup, while great anytime, is perfect for a fall or winter evening. It’s warm, filling, and best served in a large soup bowl with nothing but some toasted crusty bread for dipping.
