Crock Pot Chicken Soup

Hey guys! Another sub zero degree day here in Pittsburgh, so yesterday I decided to make a second meal in the Crockpot, along with our dinner!

super simple crockpot chicken soup

This is one of my favorite go-to Crockpot meals simply because it’s so comforting and so simple!

Ingredients:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 package of baby carrots
1 stalk of celery
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
4 cups of water

Directions:
1. Fill Crockpot with chicken broth and water, then place chicken breasts into the soup.
2. Chop the carrots and celery and place into the Crockpot.
3. Back on low for 8 hours.
4. Take chicken breast out and shred in Kitchen Aid mixer (with paddle attachment) or by hand.
5. Recombine chicken with soup and enjoy!

Macros:
Serving size (4 ounces of chicken and about 1.5 cups of soup)
Calories: 190
Fat: 1.3 g
Carbs: 15.5 g
Protein: 28.1 g

This is so simple. And it tastes just like grandma’s homemade soup. I personally like to keep the chicken separate from the soup in it’s own container so that I can easily weigh out 4 ounces in order to hit my protein macros. But then I just combine it all together, throw a little salt in, and eat with some saltines.

Perfect for these cold days! Hope you enjoy this!
