This Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken and White Bean Soup warms my heart physically and emotionally. It’s everything a comforting Winter time soup should be – easy to make, makes the house smell great, is filling and makes me feel warm.
On the emotional side it makes me happy because it is filled with vegetables from our Summer garden. Besides the carrots and celery we are using our canned stewed tomatoes which I can’t get enough of. We canned so many of these tomatoes I lost track of how many.
Then we add dry white beans which are so easy to grow and store perfectly. Next year I’m going to grow twice the amount of white beans just because of this soup! Plus aren’t white beans just gorgeous? For gardeners, we grow Kenearly Yellow Eye variety beans. I love the dry beans in this recipe because they don’t require a overnight soak (I always forget to do that!).
This recipe post is going to be short since this soup is no nonsense and says enough once you take a bite. Throw all the ingredients in the slow cooker, turn it on low for 8 hours and then enjoy a big bowl (or two!) of Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken and White Bean Soup!
