Crock Pot Chicken Garbanzo Bean Soup Recipe


  • 2 boneless chicken breasts (about 1 lb boneless chicken meat)
  • 1 cup sliced celery, (use the tender leaves at the center of the celery stalk if you have them)
  • 5 large carrots, sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large Bay Leaves
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme or a small bunch of fresh thyme sprigs
  • 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 15.5 ounce can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 8 cups of chicken broth ( two 32 ounce cartons)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup long grain white rice, rinsed well and drained
  • large handful of fresh baby spinach leaves


  1. With a sharp knife carefully cut the boneless chicken into cubes.
  2. Place the cubed chicken meat, celery, sliced carrots, chopped onion, dry bay leaves, chopped garlic, un-drained can of diced tomatoes, the drained and rinsed garbanzo beans into an 8-quart crock pot.
  3. Add the chicken broth and salt and pepper to the crock pot. Stir to combine.
  4. Place the lid on the crock pot and cook on high for 2 to 2 1/2 hours. After 2 to 2 1/2 hours add the long grain white rice to the crock pot.
  5. Stir the rice into the broth to prevent it from clumping.
  6. Replace the lid and continue to cook for another 30 to 60 minutes or until the rice is just tender.
  7. Do not overcook or the chicken will be very dry and the rice will turn to mush.
  8. Right before you plan to serve the soup add a large handful of fresh baby spinach leaves to the crock pot and stir.
  9. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
