  • Yields: Variable


*1-2 kg of chicken wings or drumsticks

*1 pkt diced frozen veg

* One diced onion

*1 40g pkt of dry chicken noodle soup mix

*2-3 tablespoons of chicken stock powder (salt reduced if you prefer)


1Place chicken and vegetables in slow cooker bowl.

2Add stock powder and dry soup mix and fill with water to approx 2 inches below top of slow cooker inner bowl.

3Cook for 8hrs on low - this is a recipe that is great to leave on all day while you work.

4Before I serve I take the chicken out, remove the bones then return the chicken meat to the pot and stir.


6It's super easy with the frozen veg etc to assemble in less than five minutes and it tastes divine served with crusty bread rolls!!

I made this tonight definitely a winner for my family my son had seconds tonight and also enough left over for lunch the next day.

Made this for lunch today as the toddler has a double ear infection and wonโ€™t eat anything at all!
I used left over roast chicken from Sunday, peas, corn and carrot along with the salad onion. I did more chicken stock then recommended as I love it and love a strong taste! Will definitely be a regular especially in flu season!

I do mine in this size and once I’ve added all the ingredients I still take the water up towards the top of the bowl. Bearing in mind I use a good serve of stock powder myself to keep it strong how we like it ๐Ÿ™‚

Just wondering…another reviewer mentioned that for her large slow cooker, the amount of water put in diluted the flavour to a point. I have a 5.5 litre slow cooker – does anyone know if I should put a little less water in the bowl? It looks so delicious, canโ€™t wait to try it.!
Thanks in anticipation ๐Ÿ™‚

This soup was amazing OMG! I also added 2 diced potatoes. Have leftovers to freeze for lunches. Sure was a winner in this household.

I haven’t tried to do so as this is more a broth style soup ๐Ÿ™‚
If you try it let me know

Could you put cream with it to make it a creamy chicken soup?

Made this last night using drumsticks.
I usually just chuck a bbq chook, deboned and shredded, in, but the depth of flavour using drumsticks was out of this world!!
I threw in garlic (about 3tsp minced) to try to eradicate germs, and I also threw in shredded cabbage and some diced potato (because my husband thinks potato is life! lol)
I added chili flakes to serve (again, to bust the germs)

I made this tonight after a friend suggested it and it was lovely. Served our family with a meal leftover to freeze. One thing I think I should have thought about though it that I have a large slow cooker and I think filling it up according to the directions might have been a little too much water, just dimmed the flavour a bit. Lovely, easy recipe.

Hi Mem, It wouldn’t have quite the same depth of flavour but you could ๐Ÿ™‚

Just wondering if I could make this using leftover woolworths BBQ chicken? Would it still be worth putting in slow cooker? Have most of a BBQ chicken to use up! Thanks

I find breast a little dry but if you preferred it then sure you could ๐Ÿ™‚

It would depend on your cooker
But long and slow is ideal ๐Ÿ™‚


July 24, 2017

Can this be made with breast chicken pls.


July 23, 2017

Can this be done on high for 4hrs

Sure it just wouldn’t be as strong a flavour as I make the stock powder up to ๐Ÿ™‚


July 23, 2017

Looks easy andbdelish will give this a go during the wish ,cant wait thanks paulene

Could you replace the stock powder/water with chicken broth? I am thinking of the tetra pack chicken consommรฉ .

Sure can .. I freeze it all the time!

I have made something similar but uses cooked bbq chicken. But chicken wings and drumbsticks might be a cheaper way to go.
