My Crock Pot BEST - Chicken & Rice Soup

This soup recipe is not only crazy easy, crazy inexpensive, but also crazy insanely delish.

If I do say so myself.

I knew it must be good when I had friends over and one went back for a third bowl because she just couldn't get enough.

I promise you, you will like this.
(unless you don't like awesomeness, in which case...you may not like this)

So here's what you need:
- Crock Pot
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped OR approx. 1 lb of ground chicken (I love both ways)
- 2 cartons (900ml) chicken stock (I use low-sodium)
- 1 cup chopped carrots 
- 1 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 onion chopped
- 1 cup Uncle Ben's Chicken & Herb flavored rice
- Spices (optional). I use Rosemary, Thyme, Parsley, Basil & Oregano with a bit or Salt & Pepper


Here's what you need to do:

  • In a skillet, cook up your chicken. In another skillet, cook your veggies until the onions are translucent. Transfer everything into the crock pot and pour in the broth.
  • Add spices (I like a lot, some like a little).
  • IF DOING THIS IN A 4-5 HOUR TIME SLOT: Cook on HIGH until boiling, then reduce to low.  IF DOING THIS IN THE MORNING: Cook on LOW for the day.
  • One hour before serving, add raw rice.
That's it. You're done!!


Here's some yummy pics to drool over...

Here's the soup in the crock pot before adding the rice.

 Finished Product!

WHY haven't computers been innovated for scents yet?

This is the perfect time of year for this. I love soups and my husband hates them, but this may be a pretty safe bet. I love that it uses a crock pot so you get the yummy smell all day and you get to feel like you're doing real grown up cooking.

I think I may have to try this! I like trying different variations of simple chicken soup.
Saw this on Tatertots & Jello.
