Just a very basic, surprisingly delicious recipe for basic chicken soup made in a crock pot. I even surprised myself!
- 1 (3 lb) roasting chickens
- 2 lbs carrots, baby
- 2 cups celery, with leaves, chopped roughly
- 2 large onions, chopped roughly
- 2 bay leaves
- 0.5 (28 ounce) can chicken broth
- 1 cup frozen peas (use later in recipe)
- 1 tablespoon dehydrated dried parsley, approx. 1-Tblsp . (use later with peas)
- 2 cups cooked rice
- Layer in crock pot in this order:.
- Starting at bottom:.
- -Bay leaves.
- -Chicken (whole).
- -pour in broth till not quite half way up (save the rest for when you get home to add at the end) I kept in fridge but NOT in the can.
- Put on high for 1-hr. before you leave for work, then LOW until you get home. I had it on low from 8:00am till 5:30pm and it was done perfectly!
- Remove the chick and de-bone it, put chick back in soup w/rest of canned soup from refrigerator.
- OH, THEN I ADDED SOME FROZEN PEAS AND DEHYDRATED PARSLEY FLAKES.
- I had cooked rice but I would never put it into the soup, we just put it in our bowls and added the soup -- perfect and REALLY DELICIOUS!
