Slow Cooker, Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

One thing I love about the fall is taking out my slow cooker. I haven’t made a lot of soups in it, but I find it so much easier than babysitting soup on the stove. This is one filling soup. I made it with some Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits. My son, the picky one, even though he wants to go to culinary school loved it.

  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp old bay
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour

Instructions
 

  • Salt and pepper the chicken to taste and add it to your crock pot
  • Stir in chicken stock, wild rice, garlic, onion, carrots, celery, old bay, thyme, rosemary and bay leaves; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours.
  • Remove chicken from the slow cooker and shred, using two forks.
