This soup is a hit with my family. Chicken has always come out tender for me and much easier to make and clean up using a slow cooker. Takes me a minute or two to clean it.


I totally get the energy saving aspect of using a slow cooker so I decided to give it a try, following the directions to a "T." As I suspected, the chicken was REALLY dry and I didn't think it was worth the extra AM cooking time or time spent to wash my 6 qt. insert by hand (it doesn't fit in my dishwasher). However, the long cooking time (and bay leaf) did create quite nice flavors. In order to make this recipe work, I'd have to make some major changes which would make it unsuitable for a Wednesday night. I think I'll stick to my 20 minute recipe from "Everyday Food."

For us working Moms, being able to put a meal on in the morning and come home to a family-ready meal is hugely important. For Mistea who wonders about the smartness of crock-pot cooking: Mine goes in the dishwasher and is way easier to clean tan pots and pans, uses way less electricity. I would NEVER put something on the stove that I could do in my slow-cooker.
