Slow Cooker Masala Chicken Soup

Slow Cooker Masala Chicken Soup

Recently I made a slow cooker chicken soup and it was a delicious meal. My husband Howard and I really enjoyed this dish. Ted, my son wasn’t the biggest fan but he’s not really keen on soup. Howard was very impressed with the flavour of the chicken soup so I thought I would try to add spices and different herbs.

It has been proven that eating spices regularly can help to prevent certain diseases such as cancer. Most of the meals I cook include spices and/or herbs. It’s a great way to add antioxidants to our meals. When I cooked this dish I was a little unsure of how it would taste but the results were delicious. The spices added a lot of flavour which Howard and I really enjoyed. It’s a dish I will be serving again soon.

Slow Cooker Masala Chicken Soup

Slow Cooker Masala Chicken Soup was a hit with my husband and myself. As I said my son Ted wasn’t to keen on this dish. For me, it was an easy to cook and a great meal. All the ingredients are freezable and I made double of this meal. I put the left overs in the fridge and I ate them for lunches during the next week. The meal could also be taken with you as a packed lunch. It’s delicious with a crusty roll or my homemade chickpea flour wraps. However you decide to eat this dish, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
