Zesty Chicken Soup


The weather lately here has been so all over the place.  On Saturday it was sunny and nice, like nice enough to do a long run in short sleeves, but then Sunday was cloudy and then rainy.

I was glad I decided to start this in the crock pot Sunday morning cuz by the time dinner rolled around I was ready for soup!

This recipe calls for the Stubb’s chicken marinade, but I only had the beef kind so I used that instead.

It’s got a kick, you’ve been warned!

Zesty Chicken Soup


  • 5 russet potatoes, peeled and cubed into 1″ dice
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 14.5 oz can crushed tomatoes {fire roasted if you can find it}
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1/2 cup Stubb’s Chicken Marinade
  • 1 tsp salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper, or to taste
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 large chicken breast
