If you’re looking for a soup that holds all the flavors of Chicken Parmesan, then this Chicken Parmesan Soup is for you!

Chicken Parmesan Soup

First off… Happy Halloween everyone!

Secondly… why in the world did my 10 year old wake up at 6am this morning?


I know, I know.

My husband blames it on me for “over-doing it” this year with Halloween. Which, I clearly did NOT. We hung up a total of one Halloween decorations on our porch and two nights ago we finally carved pumpkins.

That’s it.

He says that it’s because I bought them new Halloween costumes…

The 10 year old is going as a ghost (an $8 costume from Walmart). It’s basically a sheet with eye holes.

“When I was a kid I never got a new costume,” he says, “I was always what my brother was the year previous.”

Well excuuuuuse me… {giant eye-roll}

It’s clearly the candy that she’s excited over, right?!

And who wouldn’t be excited about getting to go door to door, dressed up, and get free candy out of it?

The only thing that’s not cool about the whole situation is getting up at 6am, standing a few inches over your sleeping mother’s face in the pitch-black darkness, staring at her until she feels some creepy presence in her room and then she wakes up totally freaked out.

Not cool.

Chicken Parmesan Soup

You know what else is not cool? This soup. Because it’s supposed to be served hot… duh! 😉

It’s a totally delicious and hearty tomato based soup that’s filled with plump chicken, tender penne noodles, and loads of parmesan cheese. It’s the perfect way to warm up this Fall and winter!

    This soup looks delicious! I wish I saw this post yesterday while I was at the grocery store, instead I’m making another soup =/

    But I will be making this soup in a couple of days, can’t wait to taste it! Thanks for the recipe!

    This sounds amazing! I’ll definitely have to make this as it will be the perfect comfort food for these snowy days. Shared!

    OK, Minnesota thinks it’s January right now. Somebody tell it, it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. This chicken parm soup seriously looks so warming and hearty and everything we need in this chilly chill. I’m saving this one, b/c it looks super easy and I think I have all the ingredients ready to go 🙂

    Halloween was my youngest son’s favorite holiday. I am not sure why. It’s a great soup. We are only in the 50’s here, but it is still soup time.

    That’s so funny that he woke up at 6am!! I definitely did that for Christmas, but I don’t know about halloween.

    This soup looks so hearty and delicious!

    Oh, chicken parm, my favorite! Never would have thought to put it in soup form. If my youngest who is allergic to tomatoes is ever away for the night this will be on the menu!

    Sounds like your kiddo is practicing being scary for Halloween. This soup looks perfectly cozy…and not scary at all (which is good because I’m a big chicken!).

      It’s cold in St Louis Missouri….29 tonight for the kiddos! This soup looks amazing…sure wish I had the recipe days ago and it would have been in the crock pot and ready to eat when I got home from work! Can’t wait to make it…..
