How To Make Chicken Soup In A Soup Maker

This guide will show you how to make a chicken soup in both a soup maker where the chicken must be cooked first, as well as a soup maker that can make the soup with raw chicken.

When I originally made my easy chicken soup recipe it was in a Morphy Richards soup maker. Chicken must be cooked before adding it to this soup maker.

I have since made it in my new favourite soup maker, the Ninja Soup Maker! You can add raw meat to this soup maker and it cooks it for you.

I do still add in cooked meat to make soups as I am quite often using up leftovers and soup is a great way to do this!

What You Need

1.6L Morphy Richards Soup Maker (or similar model)

  • 200g cooked chicken, chopped or shredded. This amount is approximate, you can adjust it depending on what you have available.
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 – 2 smallish potatoes (approx. 200g), scrubbed and diced
  • 1 chicken stock pot or cube
  • Hot water up to the line
  • 1 tbsp crème fraiche/cream (optional) stirred into each serving
  • Seasoning – I like to add 1tsp of ground black pepper but you can add according to your taste

Ninja Soup Maker 

  • 1 to 2 chicken breasts, or boneless chicken thighs, cut into chunks. I prefer to use chicken thighs, but both taste great.
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 medium onion, quartered
  • 1 – 2 smallish potatoes (approx. 200g), scrubbed and diced
  • 1 chicken stock pot or cube
  • Hot water up to the line
  • 1 tbsp crème fraiche/cream (optional) stirred into each serving
  • Seasoning – I like to add 1tsp of ground black pepper but you can add according to your taste

How To Make It

If you are using the Ninja soup maker you can add the quartered onion and whole garlic cloves straight in the jug and press chop.

Optionally sauté the onions and garlic in a little oil or butter before adding all the ingredients to the soup maker jug. Leave out any cream or crème fraiche you might be adding.

For the stock, I tend to add the stock pot or cube straight to the soup maker and then pour boiled hot water straight from the kettle into the soup maker jug, up to the MAX line. 

Set it off on smooth and leave it to cook. The Ninja smooth cycle takes 30 minutes and the Morphy Richards takes 21 minutes.

When it has finished, stir in any cream or crème fraiche if you are adding it, as well as any seasoning according to your own taste.

Chicken Soup In A Soup Maker

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Chicken soup in a soup maker is easy to make and tastes amazing! It's perfect for lunch or an afternoon snack!

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 or 2 chicken breasts/thighs*
  • 200g potatoes (approx), cleaned and chopped
  • 1 chicken stock pot/cube + hot water
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper (or other seasoning according to your own tastes)
  • 1 tbsp cream/crème fraiche (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add the onion and garlic to the soup maker jug - if you are using a Ninja soup maker you can use the chop function to slice them up.
  2. Optionally sauté the onion and garlic if your soup maker has this function.
  3. Add the chicken - you can add it raw if using the Ninja Soup Maker, but if you are using a Morphy Richards or other soup maker that doesn't advise using uncooked meat, add about 200g cooked chicken that has been sliced or shredded.
  4. Add the potatoes, stock pot or cube and top up to the MAX line with hot boiled water straight from the kettle. Add in any seasoning as required (I like to use 1 tsp of ground black pepper for this soup, but you can use what you prefer).
  5. Place the lid on the soup maker and set off on smooth.
  6. When the soup maker has finished it's cycle serve and add any additional seasoning. Optionally stir in 1 tbsp of cream or crème fraiche if desired.

Notes

*Chicken - only use raw chicken if your soup maker advises this is safe to do. Otherwise, use cooked chicken, sliced or shredded. It's a great way to use up leftovers from a Sunday Roast dinner!

Made this today and it is absolutely fantastic so easy and first time I've used meat in my soup which I cooked before putting in the soup maker. Added some thyme, mixed herbs, black pepper and creme fraiche at the end no need for any added salt either.

Thinking of trying the chicken soup recipe. I've not made soup containing meat before so was wondering how long I can keep it in the fridge and, particularly with chicken, is it safe to reheat. Thanks and stay safe.

Hi Stephen - which soup maker do you have? If you are using a soup maker that can cook meat from raw (like the Ninja) then you can reheat the soup once after making it. If you are using a soup maker that requires you to only use cooked meat then you couldn't reheat the soup after making it in the soup maker.

Hope that makes sense! Essentially, you should only reheat chicken once (more info on the NHS website) Let me know if you have any questions!
