Simple, delicious soup made so much easier when you can whack it all in the slow cooker and let it do it's thang. If I'm not feeling 100% I cook mine overnight and eat it for brekkie. It's SO good, especially with the sweet potato noodles.
1 whole chicken
1 bunch fresh thyme
6 cloves garlic
1 brown onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
2 zucchinis, diced
2 sprigs celery, diced
6-ish cups broth or water
2 tspn salt & 1 tspn pepper
420g tin corn kernels
1 bunch chives, diced
1/2 bunch parsley, diced
1 lemon, juiced
STEP 1. Pop all your veggies, chicken and broth in your slow cooker. A quick note though, if your lemon isn't organic i.e it has a coating on it, please don't put it in. Leave it out and just use the juice at the end.
STEP 2. Fill your slow cooker with broth/water, leaving a 2cm gap from the top. Let it slow cook for 8 hours on low.
STEP 3. When the time is up, pull the thyme and chicken out. Dump your noodles straight into the slow cooker with the corn, and then put the lid back on while you shred the chicken.
STEP 4. When your chicken is shredded, and any leaves plucked off the thyme, stir them into the soup with the diced herbs. Have a taste and season accordingly. You may want some more lemon or a touch more S & P.
GF: Use sweet potato noodles. I do, they don't go soggy in the soup and taste great.
FODMAP: Use garlic oil to fry off the green parts of the leak. The rest as is.
My kids like the 'liquid soup' in a cup and the noodle /veggie part in a bowl they can use their fork with.
And hubby and I love ours with extra lemon and a sprinkle of chilli.
