Ah, this chicken soup! It has so many things going for it, not the least of which is that it cooks up low and slow all day long in your slow cooker, which means that you will walk in to your kitchen at the end of the day and it will dawn on you that yes, dinner is pretty much almost made. Along with that, it’s packed with carrots and celery and sweet onion and potatoes, so not only is it scrumptious and super easy, it’s also good and good for you. It’s the soup that keeps on giving. Let’s make it!
I do love a good slow cooker recipe, and a good slow cooker recipe that involves bourbon is guaranteed to make the Southern husband’s eyes light up. This particular recipe for slow cooker bourbon chicken and broccoli takes those two perfectly innocent ingredients and zings them up with a slightly BBQ-like sauce.
The chicken is going to slowly cook all day long to tender, shreddable perfection in that sauce, and then you are going to toss in some broccoli because we need our green veggies. And then everyone at your supper table is going to sigh with happiness. Ready for some slow cooker fun? Let’s make it!

So grab that slow cooker I know you have somewhere and let’s make it!
Of all the many soup recipes I have on this site (and I have 88 – I just counted), I think the ones I make in the slow cooker are my favorites. There is something about the low and slow process of simmering gently all day long that gives soups and stews such a rich, homey, comforting flavor. And so while I do love my various and sundry chicken noodle soup recipes, I figured it was high time I gave this comfort food classic a whirl in the slow cooker. And yep, it was a good, good thing.

We are heading into fall, the season of pumpkins, sweaters, and (in my house) warm and cozy suppers cooked up in my trusty slow cooker. There’s nothing quite like tossing a bunch of ingredients into the slow cooker, trundling off to work and coming home to the delectable aroma of supper being just about ready.
And one of the current slow cooker faves in my house is this recipe for slow cooker chicken taco soup. All the flavors of chicken tacos – including the toppings! – in a cheesy, creamy, dreamy, spicy soup version. Ready for some warm and wonderful slow cooker soup deliciousness? Let’s make it!
Oh, this recipe for slow cooker shepherd’s pie! If I had to name my top ten favorite word combinations, “slow cooker” and “shepherd’s pie” would definitely be in that top ten.

Hello, heaven!
