crock pot chicken leading to carrot apple soup

The weather turned cool.  We could feel it in the breeze.  I needed spicy soup and a bowl of warm chicken.  This very easy recipe handily met both requirements with very little effort on my part.

recipe modified from Frosted Fingers 

4 t salt 
3 t paprika 
4 sprigs fresh rosemary 
1 1/2 t black pepper 

Mix together in a bowl. Set aside. 

1 c chopped onion 
4-5 carrots, scrubbed, chopped in bite-sized pieces
2 garlic cloves, minced 
1 apple, sliced 

Place in the bottom of the crock pot. 

1 whole chicken 

Remove giblets and rub down with the reserved spices. 
Place on top of veggies. 
Put in crock pot and cook on low 4-8 hours 
Remove chicken and use as desired.

Cooked vegetables
1/2 qt water

Using caution, place into a blender or processor and blend until smooth.
Serve immediately or save up to 1 week in an airtight container in the fridge.
Garnish with sharp cheddar cheese, chicken, and chopped green onion.
