Is it really cold out already?! How rude! Well, this soup recipe is sure to keep you warm and cozy. If time is NOT an issue, this is the perfect and HEALTHY way to stay warm this week.
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Hours (Crockpot)
Serving size – For Two Adults – Six Nights of Meals
-Bag of baby carrots (saves time on peeling which I hate)
-Bag of celery
-Large sweet onion
-3 lbs. of potatoes (Normally about 5 large ones-I use russet because they’re normally the cheapest and on sale)
-batch of fresh parsley
-2.5-3lb of boneless skinless chicken breasts
-Turkey bacon (about half a package)
-Fresh garlic (tablespoon)
-2 32oz unsalted chicken broth containers (I couldn’t fit both completely in the crockpot however, it would have overflown)
-A dash of Fresh cracked black pepper
-A dash Himalayan pink sea salt
-In a skillet throw the bacon in and wait until it’s almost crisp
-Add onion (diced) and garlic in with the bacon, let brown.
-Once browned, throw into the bottom of your crock pot.
-Place the raw chicken breasts on top
-On top of chicken, top with chopped carrots and celery
-Skin your potatoes (it doesn’t have to be perfect) and cut into thin chip-like pieces. Lay those on top.
-Throw in the salt and pepper, then the chicken broth until it’s almost full.
-Cook on low for 10 hours.
-Get your soup pot out. Remove the chicken and shred it, throwing it in the soup pot. -Carefully add the crockpot remnants to the pot:
***IF YOU HAVE A BLENDER OR FOOD PROCESSOR, put about 1/3-1/2 of it into there and blend up, that is what will give your soup a creaminess without needing flour, milk or cream (soup will taste fine without it though, I just prefer creamier soups).
-Cut fresh parsley finely and add that into the soup
-Bring to a quick boil so it cooks in well enough and then it’s all good to go.
This will easily feed 2 adults for 6 nights. You won’t be surprised to see you have leftovers. Feel free to freeze it or I’ll give some to coworkers that I don’t hate (LOL).
