Chicken Soup (easiest thing ever)


1 cup chopped celery

1 large diced onion

1 cup cubbed carrots

1 cup diced rutabaga

2 bay leaves

2 cloves of minced garlic

1 whole (small) chicken

1 tsp salt

a pinch of thyme

a pinch of parsley


  1. Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cover with water
  2. After about 5 hours or just before serving, take out the chicken from the slow cooker and remove all the meat
  3. Add the chicken back to the slow cooker
  4. Taste and see if it needs more salt and pepper to taste

Note: If you don’t have a slow cooker you can do this in a stock pot on the stove top on simmer.

Variations: consider potatoes, wild rice, or white rice! Right before serving you can add a can of coconut milk and 3 tablespoons of curry paste for a spicier version. Often I will make a large pot of chicken soup and then add the curry the next day to change things up and make it feel like a whole new meal.
