Accidental Soup

On Sunday morning I put some food in the crockpot for lunch. I meant to turn it down to low before we left, but I forgot, and so it sat on high heat for 6 hours. When we came home, my daughter took a look at it and exclaimed, "You made soup?! Yum!"

... I didn't mean to make soup. But it was super yummy as a soup/stew, so that's how we ate it. I pulled out the meat, stripped it off the bones, and stirred it back in.


approx. 2 lb chicken pieces
garlic powder
gf seasoned salt
dried onion flakes
2 cans tomato sauce
1 can each green beans and corn
4 carrots, peeled and thick-sliced
1 green pepper, chopped

1. layer chicken in crockpot, seasoning with the garlic, pepper, salt, oregano, and onion flakes
2. add chopped vegetables and pour tomato sauce over everything
3. accidentally cook on high for 6 hours :)
4. If needed, remove bones and skin
5. stir well to break up meat into small pieces
6. if sauce is too thick for your taste, add some gf chicken broth to thin

Saving dinner seems to be a theme this Wednesday. :) Three of us did it.

Love it! We've had accidental meals before too - some great; others...

Thanks for the recipe! BTW, I got an awesome recipe for gluten free peanut butter cookies over at "The Blessed Nest."

Here is the link if you are interested!

I was going to just make them for you and bring them last Sunday, but...(Sorry! The week got away from me!)

Don't you just love kids. Sometimes they help us see what great things we've created when we get out or our own way. Cool soup! Cool kid!

Sounds like a great combination of flavors. Soup / stew, what's the difference if it tastes good right. Thanks for sharing

So I'm just gonna toss all the leftovers from the fridge in a pot, add some black pepper, and simmer for six hours.

I love it! The best food in my house comes from mistakes, otherwise I overthink it!
