My kids get easily bored with salads.

As soon as I started packing this Santa Fe Chicken Salad, their whole salad was gone. Recipe success!
This salad is filled with so many delicious Mexican-style ingredients – black beans, corn, avocado, and yummy taco seasoning.

Warm up with this classic Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup! Let the Crockpot do the work and come home to dinner that’s already done. Easy and delicious!
Soup is one of our favorite dinners to enjoy as a family. There’s just something about a big bowl of soup that’s so comforting and calming after a long day. I love making this Enchilada Soup or a big pot of Paleo Chili, but sometimes I like going back to a classic – chicken noodle soup!

The best thing about this version is that it’s completely made in the Crockpot, which means it cooks while you’re at work or running errands, and it’s done when you get home. A dinner that takes almost zero effort? Win!

We’re happy to be partnering with FreshRealm to bring healthy, delicious meals right to your doorstep. Get the ingredients for this Crockpot Chicken Noodle Soup delivered to you!

1 pound red-skinned potatoes, about 2 inches in diameter, quartered
8 carrots, halved lengthwise and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
1 tablespoon tapioca or corn starch
1 2/3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh thyme, minced
Season the chicken lightly with salt and pepper and generously with paprika. In a heavy large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm butter. Add the chicken and cook until brown, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
Add onion to the frying pan and stir. Add potato quarters and carrots. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and sauté until vegetables are beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.
Add starch and stir to coat. Gradually mix in the broth. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Return the chicken to the pan and bring to a boil.
Cover the pan, reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer until the chicken and vegetables are cooked through, stirring and turning the chicken over occasionally, about 25 minutes.
Mix in the thyme. Adjust seasonings to taste. Divide the chicken and vegetables among 4 warmed plates and serve right away.
