Nothing better then soup on a cold night .

  • Prep: 30 mins
  • Cook: 45 mins
  • Yields: 6







1/2 chicken breasts or left over chicken

2 chicken or veg stock cubes

Salt & pepper to taste.


1Peel and chop all the veg so they roughly the same size and add to a pan along with the stock cubes. How big the pan depends how much veg/ soup you have.

2Add enough cold water to cover with about an inch over.

3Bring to boil then add the chicken breast (i just added a raw one)

4Boil for 10 mins then simmer till chicken is cooked.

5Remove any fat that gathers on the top.

6Once chicken is cooked take out and shread then return it to pan.

7Note.....if you want a thick soup now would be a good time to take half out and blitz the return it all to pan .

Easy. Use what veg you have around. Root veg always works best in this.
No weights given as i never measure on a veg soup its always a see what i can add job.

This was cooked on the hob. But can be made in slow cook. I always add raw meat and never harmed my family. It is safe otherwise really whats point of slow cooker if i have to cook it all before. Dawn

Slow cookers cook above bacteria killing temp… about 80° ish on low so you can put anything in them really 🙂 sometimes Browning meat first makes the dishes nicer though depends what your making c

Hi could you add noodles as this looks similar to a Jewish chicken noodle soup recipe I found thanks

Half term here next week! We are going away but I have decided when we get back I am going to put the slow cooker to good use and get some stews and bolognes sauces done for the freezer. xx
