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!

Loved this one. Very easy and flavorful. I made it with cooked turkey breast leftovers. Very healthy and good.
