This Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup takes just minutes to prepare which makes it a perfect weeknight dinner idea. Sweet and spicy BBQ sauce, chicken, red onions and cilantro come together with the addition of corn for a comforting bowl of goodness on a chilly autumn day.
With a now four day weekend to enjoy thanks to scheduled parent/teacher conferences and non-scheduled lake effect snowstorm bringing down power lines near the girls’ school, I’ve been cooking like nobody’s business. I was telling Andy and his sister last night at dinner that it’s amazing how much time I had to get stuff done when I’m not shuttling people around to school and back home again.
The cooler weather appears to be here to stay so I’ve decided it’s time for soup! We’re big soup eaters even though it’s hard for little ones to eat soup and not create a complete disaster with sloshed broth and all. The girls can now eat soup with minimal mess, but I like hearty soups like this Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Pizza soup as it has larger pieces that I can easily serve to Carson simply by using a slotted spoon instead of a ladle. Everyone eats the same thing at our house at each meal. Although I love to cook, I’m not a short order cook!
