Chicken and Wild Rice Soup in Crockpot – #SundaySupper

Hi Everyone,

It’s another #SundaySupper and today we are slowing bringing in the new year by sharing slow-cooker/crockpot recipes!  Oh yah!!!  Nothing like a slow cooked meal when all of the flavors come together and become one awesome dish!!!  It’s one of my favorite ways to cook, especially when I get home from work and the last thing I want to do is cook, but when you are using your Crockpot the meal is pretty much done for you and I love that!!

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup (Crockpot)
Today I made for you a warm bowl of Chicken and Wild Rice Soup. Oh man this is so good! I haven’t had chicken and rice soup since I was a kid. It full of carrots, celery, chicken and the star of the show wild rice. It makes for the perfect weeknight meal and is great for lunches too!! This recipe makes 10 cups, and that gave me a few days of lunches.

Do you like my colorful carrots? Trader Joe’s had organic carrots in a variety of colors and I just had to buy them. It really brighten up the soup and made it a little more fun than traditional carrots. Not only is the recipe colorful, tasty and so easy to make, it also comes in at only 119 calories. Talk about guilt-free, I was able to have some crusty french bread to go with it!

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup (Crockpot)
I really do love my Crockpot and I plan on using it more. I go through stages where I use it, but once I put it away I tend to forget about it. Do you ever do that with something?

Anyway, don’t forget to check out everyone’s slow cooker recipes. Every Sunday morning, I grab a cup of coffee and read every single #SundaySupper post. It’s my Sunday ritual and I really can’t wait for this weeks, since I could use more Crockpot recipes.

Have a wonderful rest of the day!

  2. I would get immense pleasure from plunging my spoon into your bowl of chicken and rice soup. It looks really good. It’s hotter than anything here in Australian summer but I could eat this soup. :)

  4. Your soup looks so inviting, Jen I love chicken and any kind of rice together. I know wild rice isn’t “rice” but I love it in soups too!

  11. Score…I have all these ingredients left from my chicken stew, other than wild rice. Do you think I could sub in brown rice instead since I have a huge container of it? We’re going to be cold (Texas-cold) here the next couple of days, so will be making soup for dinner the next few nights.

  14. Chicken ‘n rice soup is quintessential comfort food! Thank you for sharing the recipe and the fun tidbits about TJs selling multi-colored carrots…Even in California, we can use a little winter cheer, right?

  15. At first I thought those golden carrots were golden BEETS, and as much as I love beets, I was thinking that was a strange ingredient for soup :) Now that I know they are carrots, I would love a big bowl of this any day. So wholesome and warming!
