Crock Pot Chicken Soup

16 Jan

As promised, here’s the crock pot chicken soup recipe! After running the grocery store yesterday morning, I threw everything into the crock pot, ran errands and returned home to a delicious smell that had invaded every inch of the house. It’s not exactly the fastest meal to put together but it is definitely worth it.

Crock Pot Chicken Soup

What you’ll need:

– a cooked Rotisserie chicken (I picked up mine in the grocery section at Walmart)

– celery

– a sweet onion

– carrots

– chicken broth

First, I took the onion and celery and chopped up enough pieces so that they would cover the bottom of the crock pot. I ended up using about one onion and four and a half stalks of celery. I then used a mandolin to slice up carrots. You can also just cut them. (It’s probably a lot safer! I ended up nicking myself on the blade once. Not fun!)

I then pulled the meat off of the chicken making sure that I peeled off all of the skin and fat in the process. I added that to the crock pot on top of all the veggies.

Next, I added the chicken broth followed by oregano and cilantro to season everything. It smelled so yummy! I called my dad at work to double check if I had missed anything and he mentioned that he usually shreds up a bit of the carrots and celery to add extra flavor to the broth. I shredded another carrot and stalk of celery and added it to the mix. I stirred everything together, set the crock pot on high for six hours and voila! You’ll all done!
