Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Soup

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on January 1, 2012

Two days ago I was kind of complaining that we didn’t have a white Christmas. There was a dusting of snow on the frozen ground, but it wasn’t even enough to cover the brown grass. There’s nothing festive about brown grass. Brown, dead grass just doens’t sparkle like fresh snow does on a sunny day.

Sparkling snow has it’s own kind of beauty. It’s one of the very few things that I enjoy about Wisconsin winters. Fresh sparkling snow and soup.

There’s nothing that I love more than a great big bowl of hot soup on a cold night. It just has a way of taking the chill out of your bones. And if it brings back memories of summer, well, there’s a special place in my heart for it. Which is why, I’m so in love with BBQ Chicken Soup.

I have to confess though, there is something that I love even more than soup. And that, my friends, is quick and easy soup. Just toss the ingredients in your slow cooker and let it do the work for you. All you have to do is enjoy the aroma that slow fills your house. BBQ sauce, chicken, corn, cilantro. Can you smell it?

Slow Cooker BBQ Soup

This soup brings back memories of BBQing on the grill in the summer, while warming you as the snow drifts silently outside. Just the thing you need to lift your spirits as the temperatures dip lower and lower, ad you become a hermit because it’s just too cold to leave your house.

MmmmmmmMMMMM! Is there anything better than a giant bowl of soup on a cold night? I think not.

You are exactly right!

Hmmm…I wonder what would happen when you added some noodles to it? I am thinking I might adapt this to fit the criteria for the Mom’s Crazy Cooking Challenge this month :).

I bet that would be great!

I enjoy snow on Christmas, too. Instead, we had snow on Halloween weekend this year. Go figure! Kind of ruined plans for that weekend!

If our winter is anything like last year, we’ll be eating lots of soups to warm us up! I’ll be adding this to my list of recipes to try! The top of the list! 😉

We’ve had snow on Halloween too, thankfully not this year. I hope you enjoy the soup!
