My Dad knows how to get me to come over. All he has to say is “I have soup in the crockpot” and I’m there. My dad is the soup guy in the family and I love everything he comes up with.
I promised to share this recipe a couple of weeks ago, and I’m sorry it took me so long, but better late than never 🙂
*4 Lbs Chicken With Skin & Bone (I used whole chicken)
*4 Large Carrots
*5 Celery Stalks
*1 Large Yellow Onion
*4 Tablespoons Better Than Bouillon Chicken Flavor
*1 Small Sweet Potato
*1 Cup Black Beans
*1 Cup White Beans
*1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
*Two Cups Brown Rice
*1 Tsp Black Pepper
*1 Tsp Sea Salt
*1 Tsp Garlic Powder
*1 Tsp Italian Seasoning
*2 1/2 Quarts Water
*1 Can Cream of Chicken.
*Heat water and chicken on high heat until water begins to boil, reduce heat and cover. Let the chicken simmer for thirty minutes.
*Remove the chicken from the bone and the skin from the chicken.
*Add the water from the chicken into the crock pot and add the can of cream of chicken.
*Turn the crock pot on high and add the chicken, seasoning, and chicken base to the crock pot.
*Start cutting up the vegetables!
*Add the celery, onion, sweet potato, carrots, drained and rinsed beans to the crock pot.
Cook all the ingredients in the crockpot on medium high for about six hours. Add uncooked rice and allow it to cook before serving. Taste the soup and determine if it needs more seasonings
I added in some cheddar cheese and croutons for an extra kick!
This recipe makes about 24 cups & it’s perfect for a cold winter day!
