Slow Cooker Chicken Gumbo - The Southern Lady Cooks

My family loves this slow cooker chicken gumbo soup and this is one your family will love too. I freeze okra in the summer just to use in gumbo.  This dish is easy to make and really hearty and delicious. Top it with oyster crackers for a real treat I love any soup you can throw in the crock pot and let it just cook. You might also like to check out our recipe for easy chicken and dumplings.

Slow cooker chicken gumbo soup ingredients needed:

Cooked chicken

Chicken broth


Green pepper


Petite diced tomatoes

Fresh okra or frozen


Cajun seasoning

Black pepper


Cayenne or hot sauce to taste

Long grain rice (Could use instant rice)

Soups are super versatile add vegetables you like or take out what you don’t. Many people will comment they don’t like okra.. just leave it out. This would be good with wild rice or brown rice too. What is wonderful about cooking is experimenting and making things your own. Crock pot soups are the easiest way to do that.

This dish would be great for a big gathering as you can easily double the recipe. If you like this dish you will love these too!
