There is nothing crazy wonderful about this, it's just a good, hearty chicken and vegetable soup. I have been trying to eat more "low-carb" so this recipe isn't super creamy. You can add 1 cup of chopped potatoes and 1/2 cup cream if you don't care about carbs and I'm sure it would be even better. I just love to eat this soup and I hope you will too. It's very simple to make and just plain old good!
- 2 cups chopped chicken (cooked or raw, I like to use raw)
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3⁄4 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 7 cups chicken broth
- 2 chicken bouillon cubes
- 1⁄2 teaspoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup diced carrot
- 1 (15 1/4 ounce) can sweet corn
- Put all ingredients in crock pot.
- Cook on high for 6 to 8 hours.
Delicious. I made this in my pressure cooker for 24 minutes. I used two raw chicken breasts and followed the recipe but used a half bag of frozen corn instead of canned corn. I think cream corn would be good with this too. I am on weight watchers and the recipe made 12 cups of soup/ 6 servings (2 cups per serving) and it equaled 4 points per serving. It was the first time I ever used butter in a soup recipe and it really gave the broth a good flavor . I also used fat free chicken broth. Will definitely make this again.
This soup is the best!! I changed nothing, but I didn't have oregano or corn so I just made it without. For the chicken part, I put in 3 raw skinless chicken breasts, with the bone. I was looking for a delicious and hearty, easy to make low fat soup; this is it. This recipe is so good that I just had to create an account to rate it.
Simple and delicious! I used olive oil in place of butter and omitted the bouillon. I meant to add egg noodles, but after coming home to the amazing smells I just couldn't wait! I'll probably add some to the leftovers, but this was perfect as is with a slice of bread and butter. The spices made the broth taste heavenly. I look forward to trying different variations of this recipe.
