Slow cooker chicken barley soup recipe. A healthy chicken barley soup recipe that is easy to make. This soup is made with whole foods and tons of flavor.

Slow cooker chicken barley soup is a hearty, comforting dish thatโ€™s perfect for days when you donโ€™t have time to cook. Itโ€™s also much easier to make than a traditional pot of soup. The soup is made from broth and veggies cooked in the crock pot all day with a few simple ingredients like carrots, onion, and celery.

Why I believe chicken barley soup is the best soup ever

I believe that chicken barley soup is the best soup ever. For me, it is the most comforting soup and it has a lot of memories attached to it. It was my momโ€™s specialty. She would make this soup for me when I was sick, or when I had a bad day at school. It always made me feel better and I still crave this soup now as an adult.

I think that chicken barley soup is the best because of how comforting it is and how many memories are attached to it for me personally.

What you need to prepare chicken barley soup

This soup is an excellent choice for a cold and rainy day. The ingredients are simple and the recipe is easy to make.

-1 tablespoon butter or olive oil

-2 carrots, chopped

-2 celery stalks, chopped

-1 yellow onion, chopped

-3 cloves garlic, minced (or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)

-3/4 cup uncooked pearl barley

-6 cups water or broth (chicken or vegetable) (I used chicken broth) (vegetable broth for vegetarians)

-4 cups shredded cooked chicken breast meat (or 2 cans of low sodium chicken broth) (I used pre-cooked canned chicken breast meat)

Which Soups You Can Cook in a Slow Cooker

Slow cookers are a great way to make soup. But there are some soups that you canโ€™t make in a slow cooker. This is because the ingredients need to be boiled before they go into the slow cooker. For example, if you want to make chicken noodle soup, then you need to boil the chicken and noodles before adding them to the slow cooker.

One of the soups that cannot be made in a slow cooker is clam chowder. You need to cook the clams for about 15 minutes before you add them to the slow cooker. You need to sautรฉ onions and cook potatoes, carrots, and celery in a pan until they are fork tender. Then you mix all these ingredients with milk, flour, salt, pepper, and cayenne in a blender until smooth. The soups that can be made in a slow cooker include vegetable soups, seafood soups, and chicken soup.
