What is better than a comforting bowl of soup on a cold winter’s night. I mean seriously it’s the perfect end to a cold day. This chicken & vegetable soup is easy, satisfying and delicious. I have been sick with the worst cold since the day after Christmas. And since starting the January Whole30, I want to make sure I have meals that are comforting and cozy.
Now one of my all-time favorite soups is a good bowl of Züpa Tuscana (think Olive Garden). So when it came to making this soup, I adapted those flavors and whipped up a pot of Whole30 deliciousness. Now, you can totally swap out the chicken for compliant sausage. But I wanted to stick with chicken because although there are great options for compliant sausages, I know not everyone can get their hands on them.
Being sick for the past week (what a way to start the new year), I have been enjoying this soup for a few days. It is the perfect way to relax and unwind after a long day. You can simply add the chicken to the crockpot before you head to bed. Then wake up the next morning and add the rest of the ingredients to the crockpot and cook while you are at work. By the time you get home, it’s time to finish it off and dinner is served.
CROCK-POT CHICKEN & VEGETABLE SOUP
WHOLE30 II PALEO
HOW TO SERVE:
When I’m serving up a bowl of this deliciousness, I like to add some yummy toppings. From avocado to bacon. You just need a few things to spice up your bowl of soup. I even add some compliant hot sauce for a nice kick. One thing is for sure, you will be making this all winter long.
