12 Hour Slow Cooker Chicken Soup

12 Hour Slow Cooker Chicken Soup

Posted 2018-04-05 by finyfollow

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

Ingredients
1 kg chicken necks
½ 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

Method
  • 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.
