Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup (Crock Pot)

READY IN: 7hrs 10mins
Recipe by SarahBeth

From Betty Crocker -- Slow Cooker recipes. NOTE: Posted as written, however, I cook the rice separately usually the night before if it is a work day, refrigerate the rice and then add it during the last 15-20 minutes to avoid mushy rice!

Not much of a "soup" eater, I was looking for a soup recipe like Panera breads. Found it! The whole family really liked this soup. I tweeked the recipe just a little.. I used 8 chicken thighs instead of 5. I sauteed the onion in butter with the chicken. I used 2 cans of broth instead of one and used 1 can of cream of celery because I only had one can of cream of potato on hand. I also used the seasoning packet that came with the box of wild rice. Since I have picky eaters, I took shredded carrots and put them in the food processor until they were tiny pieces. Turned out great!
