Crock-Pot Chicken Soup

This recipe does require some pre-planning but other than that, this recipe is fantastic.

Serves:  4 to 6


  • 1 whole organic or pasture-raised chicken
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon each of dried basil, oregano, rosemary, and thyme
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 rib of stalk celery, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped


  1. Place chicken in the crock-pot with butter, garlic powder, sea salt, and herbs. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Remove chicken to a plate. When cool enough to handle, pull the meat off the bones but leave all the juices in the crock-pot. Set the meat aside to cool completely, then cover and refrigerate.
  3. Put the bones back in the crock-pot slow cooker. Add the vegetables and a little more Sea Salt.
  4. Add 2–3 quarts of water. 
  5. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or overnight.
  6. Strain bones and vegetables out of broth. Add chicken meat and reheat.
  7. Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or freeze for later.
