It’s great to come home to Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Chicken Sausage and Carrots, and this is easy and delicious.
I love this soup, and if you’re one of the fans of split pea soup, this recipe for Split Pea Soup with Chicken Sausage and Carrots from Kalyn’s Kitchen uses roasted garlic chicken sausage and a generous amount of carrots to bump up the flavor.
The soup can cook all day while you’re at work, and if you’re in a rush in the morning I’d brown the sausage and onions the night before and just keep in the fridge overnight. Then dump everything in the crockpot, turn it on, and after work you’ll have a delicious soup waiting when you get home for dinner.
Ingredients for Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Chicken Sausage and Carrots:
- dried green split peas
- chicken sausage (I used Aidells Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausage)
- chicken stock
- Goya Ham Flavored Concentrate (optional, but it does add a lot of flavor)
- salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste

If you might be a little intimidated by Indian cooking, using the slow cooker can eliminate a lot of the guesswork. This Slow Cooker Indian-Spiced Butternut Squash from The Perfect Pantry has Indian flavors like fenugreek, cumin, cardamom, and cinnamon, with a little tomato, some onion, and some fresh japapenos to bump up the spiciness.
