Crockpot Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

img_20160919_221012880

One of our absolute favorite soups is my Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup. A few weeks ago I had the rice and chicken prepped for this soup but I didn’t actually have time to sit down and make it. So I decided that I needed to figure out how to make this in the crockpot. This saved me time when it came to the cooking since I could just set it and forget it.

If you were to cook this longer you could totally cook the chicken and the rice in the the pot with everything else. I already had the rice and chicken cooked so I chose to add them about an hour before serving this. Just long enough to let the flavors simmer together but not long enough to actually cook anything.

I wasn’t sure how this would actually turn out so I left out the creamy portions from my original recipe. I’m planning to try this crockpot version again in the future but this time cooking the rice and chicken in the crockpot. I’ll probably also include the creamy portions of this recipe back in too. I’ll update you once I have a chance to perfect the recipe!
