Chicken Dump Soup

Updated on July 15, 2015

Quick & Easy Chicken Soup Recipe

Chicken soup is a cure all for winter colds. Something about it just warms the soul. This Chicken Dump Soup recipe couldn't be simpler and we love to whip it up on a blustery snow day. The ingredients can be stocked in your pantry, so you will be ready to whip up a batch of this yummy soup when the mood or weather strikes. It really couldn't be a much easier recipe. Simply open all the cans and dump each one into a large soup pot. When hot and bubbly it's ready, enjoy!

Stock your pantry

This soup is made almost entirely of canned ingredients, so you can stock up and have everything on hand whenever the mood strikes for a hearty and rich soup. There is very little to it other than dumping in the ingredients and waiting for it to bubble, with the occasional stir. You could probably even try this in a crock pot.

It may not be a fancy soup and it certainly doesn't photograph very well. But thanks to the ingredients being all pantry staples it can be thrown together quickly and will feed a small army. It's also an easy soup to experiment with if you want to do a little pantry cleaning. Frozen vegetables work as well, though you'll have to add some chicken stock or water to help balance out the lack of wet ingredients.

Be sure to leave a comment if you stumble upon a good variation.

Not the prettiest picture as it is all canned food, but I promise you it tastes way better than it looks. If you have some good crusty bread to dip into it, even better!

And canned food

Campbell's Healthy Request Condensed Soup, Cream of Chicken, 10.5 Ounce (Pack of 24)

You'll need 4 cans of Cream of Chicken soup. Campbell's is a brand staple, but any store brand will do just as well. I also like to thin the soup with chicken stock as Cream of Chicken soup can be rather rich.

Del Monte Canned Mixed Vegetables, 14.5-Ounce (Pack of 12)

You don't have to stick to the veggies listed in the recipe. Feel free to clean out the pantry or mix it up based on tastes. We do at least one mixed veggie can every time though.

Libby's Sliced White Potatoes, 15-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12)

I really like potatoes, so I typically by the family size can or put 2 regular sized in my soup. If you can't find sliced, just dice them up with a butter knife before dumping into the soup pot.

Tyson Premium Chunk White Chicken, 12.5-Ounce Cans (Pack of 12)

The canned chicken is key. Of course if you have leftover shredded chicken from a meal that will work just as well. Dump recipes are like that, use whatever you have on hand. They'll be different but yummy every time.
