  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 2 -inch piece Parmesan rind
  • 1 teaspoon yellow curry powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh dill fronds, chopped (about 1 small bunch)
  • Grated Parmesan and lemon, for serving
Directions

Combine the chicken breasts, chicken broth, 2 cups of water, carrots, parsnips, celery, onions, Parmesan rind, curry powder, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper in the insert of a 6-quart slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours.
