Clean Chicken & Veggie Soup

Good thing I still have leftovers from making this the other night, because I stayed home from work today since this sick thing I have going on has finally caught up with me. Soup is perfect for these chilly days, perfect when you're sick, and well it's perfect when you're healthy too :) 



Ingredients 
- 1/2 head of cabbage, chopped
- 1 box of low sodium chicken broth (you can use vegetable if you want)
- veggies of choice; I used carrots, celery and onion. 
- 4 chicken breasts 
- 1 can low sodium stewed tomatoes
- 1 tsp oregano
-1 tsp italian spices
- 1 T chicken bouillon 
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- pepper to taste  


Directions
1. The night before I pre cut all my veggies so they were ready to throw in the crock pot the next morning. I also put my chicken into a ziplock bag and poured the can of stewed tomatoes in as well as a few shakes of oregano. Let this marinate overnight. 
2. Add all ingredients to crock pot and turn it to it's lowest setting. Let soup cook for about 8 hours. 
3. Using a fork, you should be able to shred the chicken easily (I didn't even take the chicken breasts out of the pot, just shred while they're still in there). 


You can make this a variety of ways, I can't wait to make it again... I might try adding some quinoa noodles next time.

  1. Reading this makes me wonder how I've never made cabbage soup. Great idea - I'm always trying to get more veggies in during the winter (pasta-heavy) months!

  4. Hey. Found this site on pinterest. You got a lot of great ideas on here. I was wondering if this could be prepped then frozen for future use?

    Thanx,
