It is said that chicken soup is very healthy, and I often use it as a stock in making other recipes.

Making it in a slow cooker makes it even more delicious and it is great either on its own, or used in recipes instead of bought stock - it is little work and far healthier.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: About 12 - 15 hours
Serves: 6 - 10

1 kg chicken necks
kg chicken giblets -optional
1 carrot
1 onion
1 - 2 sticks celery
1 potato
Other vegetables of your choice - optional
Kale - optional
1 tsp chicken stock powder

Wash, and cut the vegetables - if using as a soup, I often mash the vegetables after cooking, or chop them up into small pieces, but if I am using this for stock, I discard the cooked vegetables, or eat them with something else.

Clean the chicken necks and giblets.

Put all in a slow cooker and just cover with water.


Turn on medium for a few hours and when it is boiling, turn down to low overnight. I cooked it about 15 hours in total but 12 is enough if you are short on time.

Strain, add pepper and salt and serve, or freeze in separate containers for use in cooking.

The bones from the neck are OK to give to dogs in this form. I served it with the giblets and necks which I love!

Use the vegetables with another meal - optional.
