A Brand New Take on a Classic Picker-Upper
If you love chicken soup but want to add more veggies, you've got to try this zippy version. It starts with a whole chicken that you poach in the slow cooker, along with the usual veggies, such as carrots and onions. Then things get interesting: You add some flavor boosters (such as ginger and garlic), shred the chicken into bite-size pieces and, finally, add bright green snow peas and bok choy, plus deep yellow egg noodles, for a unique and great-looking (and tasting) soup.
