There’s only one way to describe this slow cooker chicken vegetable soup from Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien: Simply Delicious.
This is one of those easy, healthy, delicious recipes you’ll make again and again.
It’s loaded with veggies and hearty chunks of chicken.
And since there are no noodles or rice to get soggy, it will keep well for several days in the fridge and is an excellent candidate for the freezer.

This video shows another recipe for healthy chicken and vegetable soup made on the stove top:
- 1-1/2 pounds raw boneless skinless lean chicken breasts
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 cup finely diced onion
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 3 cups dry coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)
- 2 cans (14 to 15 ounces each) low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) cannellini (white kidney) beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) stewed tomatoes, not drained
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
- 1 bay leaf
Ideal slow cooker size: 6-Quart.
Evenly season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Place all ingredients in the crock pot and stir.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours, or on LOW for 6 - 8 hours, until chicken is fully cooked and the vegetables are tender.
Remove and discard the bay leaf.
Remove the chicken and place in a bowl. Shred each piece using two forks -- one to hold the chicken in place and the other to scrape across the meat and shred it.
Return the shredded chicken to the crock pot and stir into the soup.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper.
