The Busy Babe’s Chicken Soup Recipe

The Busy Babe's Chicken Soup Recipe | MidwestLoveFestI love eating healthy, but I also just love eating. Which means, when I’m hungry…watch out! I will eat nearly anything in sight.

Hummus and pretzels? Sure.

Leftover ice cream cake? Slice me off a piece.

Stale Cheetos? Well, if they’re around..

This is also why my slow cooker is basically by not-so-secret lover. You just throw a bunch of goodness in it before you rush out the door to work and you come home to a hot, healthy meal.

It’s crazy to think there was a time when I was intimidated by the slow cooker.

Never be intimidated! It’s so insanely easy and awesome. Honestly, if you buy one thing for your kitchen, get a slow cooker.

Did I mention it’s also Whole30 approved? So simple. So filling. So perfect for fall.

  • Few shakes of parsley
  • Few shakes of turmeric
  • Few shakes of sea salt
Instructions
  1. Pour the olive oil or ghee in a pan.
  2. Lightly brown either side of the chicken breasts.

  7. Add salt, parsley, turmeric and any additional spices you're craving.
  8. Let be for 7-9 hours.
  9. When done, take a spoon, fish around in the soup and break up the chicken (which should be falling apart). Yes, you could pre-cut the chicken breast, but this is the BUSY SOUL'S recipe, so...).
  10. Enjoy!
  11. Note: You may want to add more salt after the soup is done cooking, but I like to leave it till the end so that
