This delicious Chicken soup is prepared in less than 5 minutes. Cooked in the slow cooker, it couldn’t be easier.
The health and nutritional benefits of chicken soup are legendary for the body and soul. There is nothing quite like a bowl of hot steaming soup in winter to heal the body and calm the mind. I love to serve my Slow cooker Whole Chicken Soup with warm bread rolls out of the oven and of course, butter.
This recipe is so easy. You just throw everything into the slow cooker and then it does all the work. Just before serving you shred up the chicken meat and add it back to the soup. Campbell’s Real Stock and Kings Soup Mix are the perfect addition to add a great depth of flavour to your soup. You could use any of the Kings Soup mixes in this recipe, I chose Country Chicken flavour but I think they all would work nicely.
Common questions about slow cooker whole chicken soup:
Which slow cooker should I use? I used the Essentials Slow Cooker from Countdown which I think is a great size and good value at only $39.
How big is this meal? This soup makes lots of leftovers unless you have a very large family. So to try something new the next day, blitz it in your blender, heat it up on the stove or in the microwave, then serve with a swirl of cream. It turns it into a creamy chicken soup which could rival the taste of the original soup. It also freezes well so you can freeze it in individual portions for when you need a quick and healthy lunch for one.
