CrockPot Greek Chicken Soup with Garbanzos and Oregano
The soup is delicious just like you see it in the photo above, but if you’re a Feta-lover like I am, try it with some crumbled Feta sprinkled on at the table. Enjoy!
(CrockPot Greek Chicken Soup with Garbanzos and Oregano was updated with better photos and step-by-step instructions, September 2013.)
You’ll need 3-4 cups of diced, cooked chicken.
Drain the can of garbanzo beans into a colander and rinse well (until no more foam appears.)
Dice up a small onion. I prefer small pieces in soup, but it’s a personal preference.
Just before you’re ready to eat the soup, chop up some fresh parsley and crumble the Feta to be added at the table. (Food blogger boo-boo; I forgot to take a photo of the finished soup in the slow cooker.)
Greek Chicken Soup with Garbanzos and Oregano
(Makes about 8 servings; recipe created by Kalyn when she didn’t want to go to the store.)
3-4 cups diced, cooked chicken
1 can (15.5 oz.) garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
1 onion, diced small
1 can (14.5 oz) petite diced tomatoes with juice
2 T finely chopped fresh oregano (or use 2-3 tsp. dried oregano)
1 tsp. minced garlic (or use garlic puree from a jar)
1 tsp. Greek Seasoning (If you don’t have Greek Seasoning, see note below.)
1 tsp. vegetable soup base (I like Better than Bouillon Organic Vegetable Base)
6-8 cups chicken stock, homemade or canned
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
crumbled Feta cheese for serving (optional, but very good)
Equipment:I used my favorite Crock Pot 3.5 Quart Slow Cooker, but any size that’s close will work.
Just before you’re ready to serve the soup, finely chop the fresh parsley and crumble the Feta. Add half the parsley to the soup and cook a few more minutes. Serve hot, with additional chopped parsley and crumbled Feta to add at the table.
Note: Greek Seasoning contains salt, oregano, garlic, lemon peel, black pepper, and marjoram. If you don’t have Greek Seasoning, use a combination of whichever of those you have.
Soup with beans is too high in carbs for most traditional low-carb eating plans, but you could make a tasty lower-carb variation of this soup with much less beans and more chicken. Everything about this soup is great for all phases of the South Beach Diet and other low-glycemic eating plans.
