In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Once hot, add onions and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. This is an optional step, but it adds to the flavor of the soup.
Combine all ingredients in your slow cooker, stirring a few times to combine.
Cover and cook on high until the chicken and veggies are cooked through, about 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low (times vary depending on your slow cooker).
Once cook time is up, carefully remove the chicken and shred it with two forks or simply dice it. Add back to the slow cooker, stir, and taste. Add additional salt or garlic powder if desired. Enjoy warm!
