1. of ample or good size, ex: a goodly amount.
2. of a fine appearance, ex: a goodly young man.
3. Archaic. of good quality, ex: a goodly gift.

I hope you enjoy your stay here. May God bless you with peace, a renewing of your mind, and rest as you read my posts.

Thanks to all for your patience as I have been on the mend. I had double heart bypass surgery in February of 2013, and I needed to focus on my recovery, which has been in steady progress. Thanks for your kind consideration.

Thanks for visiting!

Slow Cooker Chicken Pea Soup

Ingredients for chicken pea soup

I love making chicken soup (or caldo, for the Spanish speakers).  I can add any ingredients.  I can use a recipe, subtracting whatever ingredients that I don't have at hand or don't want to use.  Chicken soups can be made over a hot stove in a cold winter's night.  They can also be cooked in a slow cooker on a hot day.

The ingredients for this chicken pea soup are simple:

--1 lb. of chicken breast tenders
--1 whole onion cut up in large pieces
--1 can of sweet peas
--1 can of cubed potatoes
--about 3 cans of cream of mushroom
--about a tsp. of rosemary
--3 tsp. of diced garlic
--about a tbsp. of sea salt

First ingredients to chicken pea soup

Before adding any ingredients into the crock pot (slow cooker), I asked my oldest to spray the dish with Pam.  Then, I placed the raw chicken in one layer.  All the wet and dry ingredients went in afterwards.  Then, I just mixed the concoction until all the veggies were submerged.  This recipe is very much like the one I shared back in August, Slow Cooker Beef Stew.

Slow cooker on high for 5 hours

After all the ingredients were placed in the slow cooker, I set it on high.  My timer was set at five hours.

Creamy chicken pea soup

The end result was a delicious, thick chicken pea soup.  Because I was feeling under the weather, the white rice I made to accompany it came out a bit mushy.  It was still a wonderful addition to this soup.  I would have liked brown rice, but we ran out.

Well, thanks for reading about how to make

What about you, my readers? Do you like chicken soup? What would you add or subtract from chicken soup?  Soups are so versatile.  Try one, and you'll love their simplicity.

May God bless you with His peace and wisdom, my beloveds.
