  1. So smart to use the nuggets in the soup! Looks great!

  2. wow how cool is that to use fast food and turn it into a nice soup yummy

  3. Wow, I would have never thought to use their nuggets in a recipe. This is great, I love Chick Fil A!

  4. I really wish they would open a Chick-fil-A here in Michigan. I have yet to find one close by I live in Otsego Mi.
    Those heart shaped chicken bisket’s look amazing

  5. Ummm, forget about the soup…I want the whole chicken by myself! I love chick-fil-la chicken, it is the best! What a great opportunity!

  6. That sounds amazing. I love soups like this – especially on cold winter nights!!

  7. I’ve never had chicken tortilla soup. Looks really tasty! I keep forgetting to add to my shopping list that I need a slow cooker, to try out some of these amazing recipes.

    • Chicken Tortilla Soup is great – especially with the Chick-fil-A nuggets! 🙂 You definitely need to get a slow cooker – we actually have a couple of them! 🙂

  8. Awesome that there are some fresh veggies! I am liking the carrots and onions!

  9. Iwhat a great twist on everyone’s favorite!
    It looks absolutely delicious and reading the recipe seems simple enough to do

  10. It’s really clever to use prepared nuggets in these recipes! I love Chik-Fil-a but the closest one to my new home is nearly an hour away. It is where I eat anytime I’m over there, though!

  11. I have never thought to cook with their food. My boys eat all the nuggets before we even get home when we go. That does look good though.

  12. I really like Chik Fil A nuggets so I bet they would be delicious in a soup too. I bet it was a major hit!

  13. great meal ideas and they all seem fairly simple to make. thanks for sharing

  14. Oh gosh this sounds delicious <3 I could imagine tucking into it right now yum. xx

  15. That looks super delicious! I’ve only had Chick-fil-a once or twice, but everything I’ve ever heard about them was great!

  16. Yum! This recipe looks so delicious! Will pin it so that we can try it in the future!

  17. This sounds like a delicious meal! I pinned it so I can try it out. I really need to learn to use my slow cooker more.

  18. Oh this post is killing me! We moved to Las Vegas two years ago and while I really love living here, I HATE that there is no Chick-fil-a! The soup sounds delicious. What I wouldn’t give for a big ol nugget tray or a chicken biscuit!

  19. That chicken tortilla soup looks delish. I love slow cooker recipes – tahnks for sharing.

  20. Now I’m starving. That looks really good, I’m going to pin it

  21. This soup looks like the ideal meal to enjoy this weekend when that blizzard they have been warning us about hits NYC.

  22. This looks super yummy! Would I be weird if i said I’ve never eaten at Chick Fil-A. Hubby has eaten there numerous times and tells me I don’t know what I’m missing. I do promise to eat there this year.

  23. Very creative cooking. This really looks delicious and I think I will give this a try. Can’t wait until next week.

  24. What a fun weekend recipe! I love that you use scissors in the kitchen, I have a pair for that too and my family laughs at me. 😉

  25. You are so versatile in the kitchen. I really loved the way you used your ingredients to come up with tasty foods.

  26. Really creative recipe! To be honest, I’d be munching on a lot of the ingredients before getting to make the soup haha

  27. My gosh, I just had lunch & now I’m hungry again looking at this! Yum!

  28. YUMMY! Chick Fil A and the slow cooker – you can’t get any better than that for sure!

  29. We love Chick-fil-A! This looks so good! I wish we had one near us!

  30. This sounds really good and I can’t wait to try it. It might be perfect this week since we’re supposed to get snowed in…

  31. Just reading this makes my tummy feel warmer already. Yum!

  32. Chicken tortilla soup is my favorite soup ever. I’m going to try this recipe.

  33. Love using the nuggets! We always have extras and this would be a great way to use them up.. instead of mom eating them!

  34. Hello! I saw your linky on Think Pink Sundays at the Flamingo Toes blog, and thought I’d stop by to say hi! LOVE your blog! What a yummy idea!

    Gingi at http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com

  35. Ohhh! That looks sooo good! I love chickfila!

  36. Chicken Tortilla Soup is my ABSOLUTE favorite soup ever. I love that you cut out the hard step of baking the chicken and picked some up at Chick-Fil-A. My kids will ONLY eat Chick-Fil-A nuggets so I may have to try this recipe soon.

  37. YUM! Great idea for reusing… we cater a lot of events here at work and this is a great idea for left overs.

  38. This looks delicious. Thank you for sharing and linking up at gingham and roses!

  39. This looks very yummy but I don’t think we have the ‘chick-fil-A’ here in Australia. What is it exactly? Perhaps I could substitute.

  40. What a delicious idea. This soup looks amazing. I just love soup! Great work.

  41. What a clever idea to use the premade nuggets. My husband is a total Mafalda when it comes to soup, but he’s okay with tortilla soup as long as it’s full of toppings. This looks delicious, Courtney!

  42. Awesome way to use fast food leftovers! Love this idea, thanks for sharing:)

  43. My mother would go crazy for this because she loves tortilla soup! Sadly we don’t have a Chick-fil-A near us. I guess I’d have to find something else to use for the nuggets. 🙁

  44. This looks so yummy, thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for linking up with us at Tell Me About It Tuesday! I hope you hop over again next week. http://www.sweetsillysara.com/2014/02/welcome-to-tell-me-about-it-tuesday-and.html

  49. Thanks for that recipe. It looks so good! Thanks for linking up with the Tasty Tuesday’s Link-up. I have pinned your post to the Tasty’s Tuesday’s Pinterest Board!

  50. This is such a yummy sounding recipe. Very creative to use these nuggets and easy tool.

  51. How lucky I would love to be a ambassador for them and my son would think we died and he went to heaven if I was. I also love this soup and can not wait to try it. I am going to serve it at my Networking meeting.

  52. I am not sure the chicken nuggets would last long enough at our house to make it into the soup! Your recipe (and the chicken) looks delicious.

  53. Looks delicious and am sure my kids would love it 🙂 Will make it with real cooked chicken pieces though rather than the nuggets for a healthier option for me 🙂

  54. This looks delicious!!!!!! It seems like a fast and easy meal, which is great on those especially busy days (which is pretty much every day in my house!). Thanks for the tip and I look forward to more!

  55. I love cooking with my slow cooker. The great tastes you can get, especially when you use all fresh ingredients. This one is definatley a must try!

  56. That looks SO good! I am SO bummed we don’t have a Chick Fil A here! We don’t get anything good! I guess that is small town livin for ya! But I bet you could really use any chicken nuggets? I will have to pin this to try!

  57. YUM..This is a great idea for left overs too. So weird to say but my kids despise chicken nuggets. REALLY!! I have strange ones.

  58. Funny story: I have never had Chick-Fil-A! It looks tasty though, I wonder if I could substitute another regular nugget. It might not be AS tasty, but at least I could make it! No Chick-Fil-A’s here on Hawaii:(

  59. That looks amazing! We just got a chick-fil-a, but I used to eat there all the time when I worked at the mall before we moved where we are now. They had the best peppermint shakes in the winter, yum!

  60. I absolutely LOVE Chick-Fil-A! This soup looks amazing!

  61. This makes me miss having a chick fil a in town. We so need one in Missoula, I loved their nuggets and the soup looks delicious.

  62. What a fabulous idea! I never would have thought to do this, but seriously…what a time saver. AND, you can’t go wrong with a little Chick-fil-A!

    Thanks for linking up to Wordy Wednesday…pinning this!

  63. I love the chicken nuggets from Chik-fil-a! I would have never though of putting them in soap though.

    Thanks for linking up at Gingham & Roses!
    Hope to see you back next week!

  64. What a great recipe – and to use Chick-fil-a nice. I’ll have to mark this one down for future use especially since I’m trying to come up with easy dinners once baby #3 gets here in 4 short weeks

  65. That’s an interesting idea to use nuggets in the soup. Great time saver.

  66. This looks delicious and seems easy enough.

  67. What a really great way to utilize a fast food item. Making it a tasty, homemade hearty soup is a great idea and something my family would really like. I will give this recipe a try.

  68. Yummy!! I will be pinning this for later to make. I love Chick Fil A!!1

  69. LOVE Chick-fil-A and can’t wait to try this one out. I’m so glad you shared!

  70. I am normally not a tortilla soup kind of gal, but this looks delicious! i have been looking for great recipes and I can’t wait to try this one. Thanks 🙂

  71. I have tried this recipe a few times before but Chick Fil A nuggets would make it taste EVEN BETTER!!! I’ll have to try it.

  72. What a quick, easy way to use prepped food for a non-prepped flavor and taste! Off to get the slow cooker!

  73. Sounds great and very yummy. Thanks for linking up at Sweet and Savoury Sunday, stop by and link up again this weekend!

  74. Tortilla Soup is my favorite. I never would have thought to make it with Chicken Nuggets. Sounds fun!

  75. I never would have thought of this! Looks interesting 🙂

  76. I cant believe I have never been to Chick Fil a we don’t have one near us and everytime we go on vacation and pass one they wont stop for me. One of these days. That is exciting you are a brand partner.

  81. My husband would love this, particularly if I cut up their spicy chicken sandwich to use in the recipe. Great pinnable photos too!

  82. This looks so warm and inviting. My crew would enjoy having it one cold day at the ski lodge. Thanks for making this so easy. Using chick-fil-a nuggets was an awesome idea.

  83. What an interesting use of Chik-fil-A nuggets. I am not 100% sure a tray of nuggets that large would make it all the way home to my house (an hour from the nearest CFA) ! I love CFA. Thanks for sharing.

  84. I love Chick-Fil-A, and this recipe sounds like something everyone in my family will love!! And since it is a slow cooker recipe, it is an even bigger bonus!!

  94. Chick-fil-A sure makes it easy. I love being able to use their catering menu for quick meals when I have company.

  95. oh yum! I only recently (the past year or so) discovered the great joy of using a slow cooker – I’m always hungry for new recipes, and I love chicken tortilla soup!

  96. I love slow cooker soups. There’s something about walking into the house after a day at work and being greeted with the aroma of soup. I’ve never seen a recipe like this one before. Perhaps I’ll give it a try.

  97. Rita Leonard says
