During the cold winter months, there is nothing more comforting and warming to the soul than sitting down to a steaming bowl of homemade soup for dinner.  While it is good in a pinch, pouring soup out of a can cannot compare to what you have made and seasoned with your own hands.  And the house will never smell as good.


While some recipes involve chopping vegetables, making broth, and time spent with a watchful eye at the stove, this one could not be easier.  Thanks to a crock pot, frozen vegetables, and already cooked chicken, you'll have plenty of time for going to work or playing in the snow with your kids and still be able to get supper on the table by 5.

Because this recipe uses precooked chicken, it is a great way to keep the Sunday dinner leftovers from going to waste.  But, if those are unavailable, feel free to cook up a few fresh chicken breasts or thighs before putting everything into the crock pot.  Or you can simply grab a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to save yourself a bit  more time.


Also, you can mix and match the vegetables in the soup according to your family's preferences.  I like to add a handful each of green beans, corn, carrots, and peas.  But to make the recipe even simpler, a basic bag of mixed vegetables will do just fine.


Now, let's get ready to make some soup!
