"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!"

"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."
"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."
"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"
"A simple, delicious soup which is tasty and filling! I added some pasta about 20 minutes before serving, Everyone loved it!"
"This soup tasted good after a few hours in the crock pot. However, I cooked it more trying to get the chicken to fall apart and then it tasted a little burnt. I will stick with the 6-8 hour time frame next time."
"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."
"Smells great cooking, next time I will double to fill up my crock pot!"
"Best chicken soup recipe. I only used 4 cups of broth. I put a bag of reames frozen egg noodles in at the end and cooked them for 30-45 minutes. I used parsley instead of thyme and garlic powder instead of fresh minced."
"Good soup and easy to make. I used my leftover chicken and just started adding to the crock pot. When the soup was finished I decided to add some rice (about 1/2 cup) which thickened it quite a bit....this made it more of a mea. Hubby gobbled it up and I'm taking some for my lunch tomorrow. Thanks for a great soup and an easy method !"
"A very basic chicken soup that is truly comforting on cold winter evenings. I poached the chicken in water with a few seasonings and then cut into bite size pieces. The poached chicken was added near the end of cooking. I used frozen mixed vegetables in place of the canned corn. My soup was cooked in 4 hours. Served this with some garlic bread and a tossed salad. Made for PARTY 2011."
"I just bought a crock pot to simplify cooking for myself, surfed the net and found this recipe. The very first thing I'm making in my new crock pot. I haven't had it yet, because it's still cooking, but it smells INCREDIBLE! And it's low calorie and lower carb to boot! Careful, the chicken isn't factored in to the nutrition label%u2026 Thanks for the great recipe for a nice fall day."
"Didn't get back in time to add noodles or rice. Made the recipe as is except I used olive oil instead of butter, some roasted garlic paste instead of minced garlic, and left out the bouillon. Got home from a long day at work and couldn't resist having seconds. Will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks Sarah!"
"Amazing composition. I'd add a tbsp of vinegar while cooking and serve it afterward with some 1-2 tbsp of heavy cream per person. That's amazing."
"Very good soup. I appreciated the ease. :) I did add some noodles for the last 20 min. or so. Thank you for an easy fix soup!"
"Delicious soup! I used 8 cups chicken broth and no bouillion, plus I hwas out of oregano and thyme so use 1 tsp Italian seasoning instead. My can of corn was also smaller than specified and probably used more celery and carrots than listed. Delicious soup and the leftovers are in tupperware in the freezer for lunches. Thanks for sharing!"
"I made half the recipe as posted except I checked my spice drawer and found I'm out of thyme so I subbed a dash of marjoram. I also used low-sodium chicken stock for broth. Great tasting and easy to put together, the carrots and corn giving substance and flavor. Thanks for posting Sarah. Made for Crockpot and Rice Cooker Game."
"Wonderful. Could not have been easier especially when you can even buy the vegetables already chopped at Publix. Took this soup to a function of 25 people(good test)on a cold day. It was a big hit and had no leftovers. I used the cooked rice."
"Delicious soup! I've been looking for a good soup recipe and this is it. Simple to make. I added 1/2 C barley and 3 small potatoes and just six cups of broth (cooker too small for 7) Next time I might buy low sodium chicken broth. Kudos to Sarah in New York!"
"Giving this 5 stars for taste and ease! Took a few minutes to put together and hours later we're eating GREAT tasting homemade chicken soup! I didn't add the oregano since I was out and forgot the butter but I did add 1 1/2 c. cooked rice (1/2 c. uncooked rice, 1 c. water) about 30 minutes before serving."
"This could not have been easier! I used one of those $5 rotisserie chickens to get the meat so I didn't have to cook as long. Did not use corn as we are low carb. Other than that, followed exactly and it was wonderful. A great diet soup for lunches or a snack. I didn't use the butter either and didn't miss it."
