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.
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
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.
