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.
I doubled the corn and carrots to make this more hearty, and added an extra bouillon cube, added extra pepper to taste to add a little bite to it. Came out awesome! next time I might cut back on the thyme a tiny bit and add more oregano. I put whole chicken breasts in mine, and just pulled them out at the end and shredded them by hand, re-added the meat and let it sit on low for another 30 min to an hour for the broth to set in some in the meat. It's pretty crazy how easy this is to make, and if you have the spices etc handy its very cheap as well
Tried this because I didn't have any noodles and I'm glad I did! Good with rabbit. The homemade stock still had fat so I didn't add butter. Used Better than Bouillon. Added 3 diced yukon gold potatoes.
