Sick Day Chicken Soup

Posted by Uniformed Scrubs on 2/24/2014 to Lifestyle

Sometimes you just need something comforting and flavorful on the days that you're not feeling your best. This chicken soup recipe is easy and just what the doctor ordered to get you back to feeling like yourself. This particular recipe is made for the slow-cooker, so go ahead, set it and forget it!


6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 2 pounds) 
4 carrots, cut into 1 inch pieces 
4 stalks celery, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 medium onion, halved 
2 garlic cloves, smashed
2 bay leaves
kosher salt and black pepper
1/2 cup small pasta (such as stellette or alphabet)
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 
crackers, for serving


1. In a 5-to-6-quart slow cooker, place the chicken, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, bay leaves, 6 cups water, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. 

2. Cook, covered, until the chicken is cooked though, on high for 4 to 5 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours (the low setting will make total cooking time 8 1/2 hours). 

3. Twenty minutes before serving, transfer the chicken to a bowl. Remove and discard the onion and bay leaves. If the slow cooker is on the low setting, turn it to high. Add the pasta to the slow cooker, cover, and cook until tender, 15 to 18 minutes. 

4. Meanwhile, shred the chicken. When the pasta is cooked, stir the chicken into the soup along with the parsley. Serve with the crackers, if desired.
