Bad news. I’ve been on antibiotics for over 2 months from a cold that turned into a sinus infection that got into my lungs.
Good news. Although the antibiotics aren’t quite as effective as “normal” at conquering my infection (because I am immuno-suppressed due to my lung transplant and extra immuno-suppressed due to my recent kidney transplant), the antibiotics are preventing me from getting pneumonia (which can lead to lung rejection).
Better news. I feel great! Way better than I ever did before my kidney transplant.
Best news. I’ve been craving the one food we simultaneously think of when we are sick, the ultimate cure-all, the ultimate comfort food – chicken noodle soup!
Bestest news. Not just any chicken noodle soup – Chunky Slow Cooker Tortellini Chicken “Noodle” Soup.
Bestester news. My cravings have brought YOU Chunky Slow Cooker Tortellini Chicken “Noodle” Soup!!!
You get the classic, heart and soul warming chicken noodle soup taste with the bonus of tender pillows of cheese wrapped in each bite of pasta. I seriously don’t know if I’ve ever appreciated tortellini more.
Its so delectable that the tortellini kind of steals the show – which is quite a feat with this cast of characters. But all together, they create the most satisfyingly delicious ensemble of chunky chicken “noodle” soup, you will have ever tasted!
Not only is this the best chicken “noodle” soup ever, it has to be one of the easiest meals to make in your entire life. Seriously, the ratio of effort to deliciousness is so astronomical, that you can barely even see effort. What you see is a whole lot of chunky goodness swimming in a crockpot of brothy flavor.
….because I was trying to capture the whole lot of chunky goodness going on.
To make this soup, all you do is dice some veggies, and throw them in your crockpot, along with some whole chicken breasts (my favorite part, no cutting raw chicken!), spices and chicken stock and let it brew on cruise control. The crockpot is my absolute favorite way to prepare any soup that calls for chicken! You simply can’t achieve more tender or more tasty chicken any other way! Same goes for the vegetables.
As the chicken and veggies cook, they soak up the garlic, onion, oregano, thyme spiced chicken stock, ensuring every chunky, tender spoonful seeps with flavor as it hotly, soothingly glides down your throat.
That gliding bit – that’s my favorite part.
