Top Review by Peachie Keene

I am glad I waited to post my review. At first I would have given it a 1 star - but little did I know that the olive oil on top made a HUGE difference! And Joany wasn't lying when she said it gets better with age. I would almost recommend cooking it and waiting a day or two before serving. And definitely don't forget the olive oil! What a great tasting and healthy soup!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a crock pot place all ingredients expect salt, pepper and olive oil.
  2. Cover and cook low until a boil, This may be several hours. Turn to high and cook until beans are very soft which may be 1 or 2 hours more.
  3. When done, discard bay leaf. Carefully remove chicken from the bone and shred and return meat into the pot.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle olive oil over soup in each serving bowl. Tastes better with age.
