Fall Apart Chicken Vegetable Crockpot Soup

fn_slow-cooker-chicken-and-vegetable-soup_s4x3-jpg-rend-sniipadlargeFor Christmas I got one of the best presents EVER! I received my very own crockpot! This is my third meal I have made in it, and it is also my new favorite soup I have ever made by scratch. I have been fighting the worst head cold for the past couple of days, and when I was a little girl my Nonna would make me homemade soup and I would feel so much better. Tonight I made one of my favorite soups of all time, just this time I made it in my crockpot. This is probably one of the easiest recipes for making chicken vegetable soup.

Fall Apart Chicken Vegetable Crockpot Soup only consists of 14 simple ingredients, and I am here to tell you step-by-step how to make this wonderful soup!

*This recipe is made for a 6 quart crockpot*

Ingredients:

  • 6 celery ribs
  • 1 lb. of potatoes
  • 2 large carrots
  •  1 onion
  • 6 garlic cloves
  •  2 chicken thighs
  • 2 qts. of chicken broth
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of thyme
  • 1 cup of frozen peas
  • 1 cup of frozen corn

Now, after you have all of your ingredients, you are ready to make Fall Apart Chicken Vegetable Crockpot Soup!

Start by adding your 2 quarts of chicken broth to your crockpot, next add in your chicken thighs (I added in four chicken thighs to mine instead of two, because ya girl loves chicken). After you have added in your chicken, you will need to add in your carrots, celery, and potatoes. Instead of adding a bay leaf, I added in some basil. I searched high and low all through Publix trying to find bay leaves and I could not find them. Next, I added in a cup and a half of the frozen corn and peas instead of just a cup, because I LOVE my veggies! Now add in your garlic, salt, black pepper, and thyme. Finally, add in your onion. I saved this for last because I always end up crying while cutting into that devil and I would rather save the most painful part for the end. I set my crockpot on high for three hours, but the potatoes and carrots were semi hard still even after cooking for three hours, so I set it for an extra thirty minutes and made a huge difference!

It was so simple and fun to make and would 10/10 recommend making this again! Be sure to follow my blog to know when I post!
