  • Place main soup ingredients in a crock pot. Cook on high for 5-6 hours, or until chicken is very tender.
  • Remove the chicken and place in a bowl. Lightly shred with a fork.
  • If you would like to thicken the soup, place the arrowroot starch in a small bowl and slowly whisk in the 1/2 C. water to make a smooth, lump-free mixture. Stir the mixture into the chili in the crock pot.
  • Add the chicken back to the chili and stir to distribute. Let cook for another 30 minutes. Soup should thicken up.
