This flavourful slow cooker chicken soup is quick, easy, and made with familiar, kid friendly ingredients! 20 minutes has it into the slow cooker and your supper prep is complete!


  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 large diced carrots (dice fairly thin to ensure they cook through)
  • 2 stalks finely diced celery
  • 1/3 c minced onion
  • 2 cups diced leftover chicken
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp rosemary
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 1 handful whole grain spaghetti (1/4 of 375 g box OR 1 serving size)
  • 1 cup 1/2 and 1/2 cream OR unsweetened cashew milk


  1. Place all ingredients other than spaghettti and cream into slow cooker, and cook on high for at least 3 & 1/2 hours. (Can be longer).
  2. Half hour before eating, add cream or cashew milk + spaghetti, and cook 30 minutes longer. *
  3. Add salt to taste.
  4. Remove bay leaves and enjoy!


*I don’t recommend swapping for gluten free pasta unless you cook it separately according to package instructions to al dante & add it right before serving due to it becoming mushy.
