  • 1 large sweet onion, peeled and chopped
  • 4 large Yukon Gold potatoes, scrubbed and cut into slices
  • 4 large boneless chicken breast halves
  • 4 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 4 stalks celery, sliced
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon each of dried sage, oregano and thyme
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Place all ingredients except salt and pepper in the slow cooker.  Add a teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper and stir.
  2. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
  3. Remove chicken and shred into bite-sized pieces and set aside,
  4. Remove 2 cups of the soup, puree in the blender and return to the slow cooker (or use an immersion blender to partially puree the soup right in the slow cooker) – this makes it nice and creamy.
  5. Add the shredded chicken, taste and add more salt and pepper if needed and serve!
