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!!

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!

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!
