Slow Cooker Chicken Soup


  • 4 Potatoes peeled and diced
  • 4 Carrot peeled and sliced
  • 2 Brown Onion diced
  • 4 Sticks of Celery sliced
  • 4 cloves Garlic crushed
  • 2 liters Chicken Stock
  • 1 packet French Onion Soup
  • 6 Chicken Thighs trimmed all the fat


  • Place all the vegetables into the pot in order of list.
  • Mix French onion soup into the chicken stock and pour over vegetables.
  • Push chicken thighs under liquid and cook for a minimum of 4 hours on high or 8 hrs on low setting.
  • Remove chicken from pot and using 2 forks shred the chicken thighs. Return chicken to pot and stir.


  • Placing the hard vegetables on the bottom of the pot makes sure they all cook properly.
  • Mixing the French onion soup into the stock ensures that the flavour is distributed evenly.
  • I used powdered stock to make this recipe to keep it a budget meal. It still packed a punch in the flavour stakes.
  • Serve it with crusty bread and stir a generous handful of chopped parsley through it before serving.
