Chicken & Chick Pea Crockpot Soup
Poach or boil:
2 skinless chicken breasts
Cool, then chop into bite-sized pieces.
1/2 medium onion, chopped
several cloves of garlic (quantity depending on taste), roughly minced
Peel and chop:
1 sweet potato
3 large carrots
Cook these in the microwave until tender (but not mushy).
Put all ingredients in a large crock pot and add
1-2 cartons chicken broth (I used about 1.5)
3/4 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen green bean - chopped if necessary
1 can chick peas (garbanzo beans) - Tricia's suggestion!
salt & pepper to taste
Turn the crockpot on high and bring to a healthy simmer. (This took quite a long time in my crockpot. Although many of the ingredients were fairly warm, most were not.) Serve with a little grated parmesan.
Would I make this recipe again? Often! Speaking without any modesty whatsoever, this is the best chicken soup I've ever made.
