  • 4 celery stalks, diced
  • Half a large sweet potato, diced

  • 1 tablespoon dried herbs
  • Fresh rosemary and thyme (optional)

  3. Pour over chicken broth/stock. Add in onion and garlic powders, chili, dried and fresh herbs. Season generously with salt and pepper. Top up with water until slow cooker is full.
