Another cold, rainy and dreary day. What to do… What to do?

Make Chicken Soup!

There’s just something about a chicken soup that warms your bones.

1 Crock Pot Chicken... 2 Meals

This is one of my favorite go to’s when I want something that’s a sure hit and I don’t want to think! Ha!

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 small onion (sliced)
  • 1 small bag of carrots (cut in half length-wise)
  • 5 to 7 small potatoes (cut in fours)
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1 container chicken broth
  • Rice (optional)
  • Seasoning of choice

1 Crock Pot Chicken... 2 Meals

  1. Place chicken in crock pot. Turn to low if cooking longer (6 to 8 hours) or high for (4 to 5 hours)
  2. Sprinkle seasoning on chicken.
  3. While your chicken is starting to slow cook, chop your onions, carrots, potatoes and celery.
  4. Pour broth into crock pot. I add my veggies about 1 1/2 to 2 hours before my finish time depending if you’re cooking on low or high.

You can boil your water and add rice with a tad of butter while your soup is cooking and then scoop it onto your bowl before pouring your soup into it. I really like Lundberg rice. Non-GMO and they have a variety of flavors. We use wild rice often with our soups.

  1. Season with salt and pepper to taste and Dinner is done. :)

I usually serve a salad with this as well. I boil 6 eggs to keep in my fridge and have ready for a snack, egg salad sandwich, or to bulk up salads.

But why stop there?! Take it a step further and boil your chicken bones and cut end of veggies to make stock for the next go around. Waste not, want not!

  1. Add your left overs to a pot and fill with water.
  2. Simmer on low for 4 to 6 hours
  3. Drain and pour the yummy broth into a glass ball jar and you’ve got a second serving of broth for another meal.  Great to have on hand when someone’s not feeling well.

What’s your favorite go to for cold and rainy days?
