Crock Pot Creamy Italian Chicken Tomato Soup
I remember as a kid that it was a real treat to have our tomato soup made with milk, and here now is Crock Pot Creamy Italian Chicken Tomato Soup to try. It always struck me as an odd combination to mix milk and cream with tomatoes. It seemed such a contrast of smooth and creamy against sharp and tart. And it was, and now I know that it is this contrast that brings these flavors together so well. Here, in this recipe, it gets even better because the milk that is used is coconut milk.
If you have not tried coconut milk before, in Thai food for example, this dish will be a real treat for you to try. And it is all put together in a crock pot, which means an easy blending of plenty of good ingredients. This recipe also includes chicken, a great protein. So this soup will be really filling with the chicken, tomato, and coconut milk. Serve this dish over rice, or noodles, and you have a very well balanced meal.
Coconut milk and other coconut products have become more popular as research has suggested that organic coconut milk contains plenty of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients, and that the type of fats included in coconut are not as harmful as once thought. The issue has to do with the carbon chains that make up the fat, but let us just stick with the great flavor that coconut can impart. Like most foods, it is probably okay to eat coconut in its many derivatives; just do not over do it. This is a good generalization for most foods. But do enjoy this soup. The creamy delight of coconut against the tart and sharp flavor of tomato produces an excellent and delicious dish that your family will ask for again and again.
