I make this Immune Boosting Onion Chicken Soup in my slow cooker, but you can also make it on top of the stove -- either way it is delicious and comforting.
  • 1 giant onion (or 2 large onions), chopped
  • 4 scallions, sliced (be sure to also add the root ends to the soup -- they are extra healing)
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 3 celery stalks, sliced
  • 12 large garlic cloves, smashed
  • 4 large sticks of wakame seaweed (you can use whatever seaweed you have, or you can omit this)
  • 1 qt chicken bone broth
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 lb. boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-in pieces
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup small pasta (I used grain-free chickpea shells)
  1. Put all of the ingredients, except the pasta, into your slow cooker.
  2. Cook on high for 4-hours.
  3. Add pasta and cook for an additional 15 mins or until the pasta is cooked al dente.
  4. NOTE: This soup can easily be made on top of the stove if you prefer. Follow the directions above, but you will probably only need to cook the soup for about 1-1/2 hours. Then add the pasta until cooked al dente.
