I found this recipe in a Crock Pot recipe box I recently purchased. It is easy to make and easier to eat! Especially great for a quick meal on a cold, winter day.
- 3 (14 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth
- 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup sliced celery
- 1 cup diced carrot
- 1 (6 ounce) package long grain and wild rice blend
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
- 2 teaspoons white vinegar (optional)
- DO NOT use quick cooking or instant rice.
- Combine broth, chicken (cut into bite size pieces), water, celery, carrots, rice and enclosed seasoning packet, onion, pepper and parsley flakes in a 4 to 7 quart Crock Pot slow cooker; mix well.
- Cover; cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours, or on HIGH 4 to 5 hours, or until chicken is tender.
- Stir in vinegar, if desired.
THANK YOU for posting this recipe! I am NOT a cook in any way, but I'm sick of the preservatives and chemicals in processed foods - especially canned soup. :-( My partner had a virus last week, and I discovered your recipe. It is soooooooooooo easy, and DELICIOUS! I've just made a second pot to enjoy while we are "snowed-in" in Raleigh.<br/>If you are looking for a delicious, EASY, and chemical free chicken soup recipe - THIS IS THE ONE. :-)
I was looking for a good crock pot soup that would use up the remaining chicken left from our roast chicken last week. I found this recipe and was really pleased--though I did make some additions/changes. Not being a fan of celery but wanting something green, I substituted spinach (I added it only in the last 30 minutes). Though my chicken was already cooked, I put it in at the start to add flavor to the broth. However, I did hold off on the wild rice until 3 hours in (I was cooking on low). I also added salt, 3 cloves of garlic, and the juice of 2 lemons (lemons added in the last 30 minutes, too). I'm giving it 5 stars because it was a great launching pad for me to figure out how to make a tasty, healthy, slow cooker soup!
Very good soup! Nice and easy, the way I like it! I followed the recipe as written except I added 1 heaping T of chicken soup base and only put in 3/4 c each of the celery and carrot (just so I didn't have a lot of leftovers). Next time, I wouldn't put the rice in at the beginning like it is written, just because the rice was a bit overdone for me. I think it would be fine putting the rice in half way through cooking. Otherwise soup is very easy and has lots of flavor. Thanks for posting!
