This Slow Cooker Sicilian Chicken Soup cooks all day, leaving little work for you. A peppery broth, fresh vegetables and tender chicken, this Slow Cooker Sicilian Chicken Soup is comfort served in a bowl.

 

Ingredients


2 chicken breast
8 cups water
4 heaping tablespoons chicken broth base
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
4 celery ribs, diced
3 carrots, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 – 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
½ cup fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley
5 garlic cloves, chopped, I use my garlic press
Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
½ lb. ditalini pasta, cooked and set aside
2 cups shredded asiago or parmesan cheese

Cooking Method


In slow cooker add chicken breast, water, chicken base, onion, celery, carrots, and potatoes, diced tomatoes with their juices, garlic, parsley, 2 teaspoons salt and pepper.

Cook on high for 6 hours, remove chicken breast and shred, place back in soup and bake another 2 hours.

At the end of 8 hours, use a potato masher, mash the soup around a few times, letting some of the potatoes get a little smashed. I don’t try too hard on this, I just mash 2-3 times and call it good.

Add noodles to the slow cooker and season with additional salt and pepper if needed.

Serve with ¼ cup of sharp cheese on top, we like Asiago and parmesan both.

**We actually like to serve the soup with the noodles on the side, letting each person add the amount of noodles they want.*
