Slow cooker

  1. Place all ingredients except for chicken in a slow cooker, stirring to blend. Lay chicken on top and push down slightly to cover with soup. Cook for 5 hours on low heat.
  2. Remove chicken from soup. Let chicken cool slightly, then shred. Stir back into the soup and continue to cook 1 hour.

Stove top

  1. Saute onions, carrots, celery and garlic in 2 tbsp olive oil in a Dutch oven for 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients except for chicken and simmer until veggies are tender.
  2. Add cooked, diced chicken to soup and simmer until chicken is heated through.
