My experiments with Slow cooker series - Chicken Soup

Today is one of those very cold and rainy days at our place. This calls for hot hot soup, so what better than chicken soup. Soups taste better when done in Slow cooker. Chicken is well cooked and is ready to fall of the bone.

This soup has been my son's favorite from the time he was very small. It has Chicken, vegetables and you can add some spaghetti/noodles if you like.You can increase spice in case you like it spicier.
