A Brand New Take on a Classic Winter Warmer
If you love chicken soup but want to add more veggies—not to mention a whole new flavor dimension—try this vibrant version. It starts with a whole chicken that you poach in the slow cooker, along with the usual vegetables, such as carrots and onions. Here's where things get really interesting: You also toss in aromatic ginger, garlic, star anise and soy sauce. Once the chicken is cooked, you remove it, shred it into bite-size pieces and return it to the pot, along with snow peas, bok choy and egg noodles for a unique and delicious soup that's nutritious, too.
