An easy to make Chicken Soup recipe is one of our favorites all year long. It is light (according to the calories) but rich according to the way it makes us feel.

I love to toss in everything about three hours before dinner time.

TIMED SLOW COOKER: If you have a timer on your slow cooker you can prepare everything in the morning before you leave for work and have it start three hours before you want it ready.

The only preparation step that takes a little time is warming the water for two minutes in the microwave to dissolve the bouillon cubes before you pour the liquid into the slow cooker. For a timer setting you will want to dissolve the cubes and then cool down the water before you put it in the pot.

For example:

Use ONE CUP of HOT water to dissolve the water and then, AFTER it is dissolved you can add the other cup of COLD WATER to the liquid to cool it down. This is because you do not want to add hot water to frozen ingredients and then let them sit that way. When you do this you invite bacteria to grow.

Using frozen ingredients in a slow cooker especially in the winter hasn't been a problem as long as I add cold liquid. For optimal safety you can dissolve the cubes the night before and put the liquid in the refrigerator overnight so you don't need to do extra steps in the morning.
