Slow Cooker Chicken and Wild Rice Soup Recipe

by Nellie

This amazing Slow Cooker Wild Rice and Chicken soup is perfect for the winter! Made with amazing flavors and seasonings, you will love this recipe!

The slow cooker is such a great tool to make delicious soups. It allows you to slow cook the chicken with amazing flavors, like thyme and rosemary, while also letting it soak up all of the yummy wild rice. Add in some veggies and cream at the end, and you’ve got yourself a delicious bowl.

My favorite part about slow cooking is that you can set it and forget it. You don’t have to stay in the kitchen, you can do your thing while it cooks. This soup is great for someone who doesn’t have a lot of time during the week, but still wants something delicious for dinner!

It took me a long time to learn how to make a good soup, but the slow cooker makes it even easier. You can just throw everything in there and then forget about it! This Autumn Chicken & Wild Rice Soup is definitely one of my favorite soups to make during this time.

The kids love a good soup and honestly hubby loves any soup that I make. With such a big family, I always try to make enough food for everyone (even for a couple days–cooking everyday makes me crazy).

This soup is the perfect one to warm us up during the colder months and we all love it!
