Chicken Soup in the Slow Cooker

I have been making chicken soup for as long as I can remember. It was something my mom taught me early on. She always made it for us when we were sick. Since I caught a cold this past week I thought I would medicate myself with chicken soup. What could be better medicine then that?

You’ll need:

1 whole chicken ( you can use chicken pieces if you want, a white and dark mix makes for a better flavored broth).

1 small onion chopped

2 carrots sliced

4 cloves garlic chopped

2 stalks celery sliced (I didn’t include celery in mine this time because I didn’t have any on hand).

salt and pepper

Place the cleaned chicken in the slow cooker. Cover with water.

Add the onion, carrots, garlic, celery, salt and pepper.

Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Remove the chicken from the broth carefully. I usually use 2 large slotted spoons. Let it cool on a plate until you can comfortably handle it, Remove the chicken from the bones.

Add the chicken back into the broth.

Serve with noodles. It’s really extra good with homemade noodles. They take some time to make. I usually make a large batch and freeze some so it’s worth the effort. I will share how to make them with you soon.

Shared at these parties.

    Getting about that time of year to start making up soups and stews. I like to make large amounts right away, eat some and put some in the freezer for later use.
    Your Chicken soup recipe is about like the one I make, only I put diced potatoes , along with some frozen peas if I have on hand. Yummy, yummy for your tummy

    This soup looks good. I have been drinking a lot more chicken soup now. I took a break during the summer. Saturday is soup day in Jamaica. I hope you have now fully recovered from the flu.
