One-Pot Chicken Vegetable Soup

Especially this time of year, everyone loves a good pot of chicken noodle soup!

What I love about this soup recipe is that you can eat it without the carbs, or make it with pasta, too.

Ingredients for chicken soup

  • 5-pound whole chicken
  • Onions + carrots + celery + fennel
  • Bay leaves
  • Cloves of garlic
  • Sprigs of thyme
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • DeLallo pasta, your favorite kind!
  • Fresh parsley
  • Lemon

I chose to make DeLallo’s pasta, because we were wanting a comfort meal (on a chilly night).

This dish would be easy to make in a crockpot! Except, depending on your size of slow cooker, you may need to use a smaller whole chicken. Like a 2-3 pounder.

How to make One-Pot Chicken Soup

For this recipe, I used my LeCreuset pot, cooked on the stovetop.

Plop the whole, rinsed chicken in the bottom. Fill with a tiny bit of water, and cook for 30 minutes.

Add fennel to recipes

Then add the good stuff. All the veggies — carrots, celery, onion, and my favorite FENNEL. I love cooking with fennel! Love the licorice smell, and flavor. It really adds to recipes, if you’ve never cooked with it. Here are a few of my favorites: Sloppy Joes Recipe, Lentil Soup, and Orange Beet Fennel Salad.

After you add the spices and herbs, then you cook for 1 hour. Remove the chicken and shred.

It’s the most flavorful one-pot meal.

Either serve plain, or with pasta!

We love DeLallo, so of course I made a pot of Penne Rigate.

Oh, and the best part about this dish? You squeeze fresh lemon on top!

Oh, the flavor!
