There’s nothing like a hearty meal to fill you up after a long day on the road. If you have a slow cooker, try this recipe for easy chicken and vegetable soup. The secret ingredient is curry powder. It adds depth of flavor and turns the soup golden yellow, not to mention delicious!
Total Time: 8hr 15 min
Prep Time: 15 min
3 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts, skinned and excess fat trimmed (about 1 1/2 pounds)
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
3 medium carrots, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
3 medium parsnips, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick half-moons
2 stalks celery, peeled and finely sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 2 -inch piece Parmesan rind
1 teaspoon yellow curry powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh dill fronds, chopped (about 1 small bunch)
Combine the chicken breasts, chicken broth, 2 cups of water, carrots, parsnips, celery, onions, Parmesan rind, curry powder, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper in the insert of a 6-quart slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours.
Remove the chicken breasts. When cool enough to handle, shred the meat (discard the bones) and add back to the soup; add the peas and dill. Season with salt and pepper.
