This Classic Chicken Soup is my best chicken soup I’ve made to date, and it is made in the slow cooker! It has all the flavors of your classic chicken soup just like grandma used to make.
Packed with tons of veggies and tender chicken, this classic comfort soup is perfect for a rainy Fall or Winter day, or if you come down with a little sickness.
I am SO excited about this soup. Growing up in a Jewish home, chicken soup was a staple (and still is) for holidays and anytime someone started to come down with something. I’ve eaten A LOT of chicken soup in my day, and this is hands down my favorite. PLUS, it’s literally the easiest recipe to throw together.
