Directions

Evenly season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Place the chicken pieces, onion, carrots, coleslaw mix, white beans, stewed tomatoes, peas, chicken broth, 1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme, and bay leaf in the slow cooker and stir. Cover and cook until chicken is fully cooked, on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 7 to 8 hours.

Remove and discard the bay leaf. Remove the chicken pieces and place them in a bowl. Shred each piece using 2 forks: one to hold the chicken in place and the other to scrape across the meat and shred it. Return the shredded chicken to the slow cooker, and stir into the soup.

Season the soup with 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste. Garnish with additional thyme, if using. Serve up and enjoy!

    I've used this recipe as a jumping off point because as others have stated, the flavoring is on the bland side if you cook it as is, however I have added garlic, some lemon juice and other such things to make it sing. It's one of my favorites.
