Now that the holidays are over and we’re going to be heading back to school and our routines, I am sharing a quick and easy recipe that can be easily put together in the morning…Slowcooker Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice Soup.
Those first few days back to our routine, after being in vacation mode, can be rough.
I am trying to be planned ahead a bit so I can come home to having dinner done and avoid ordering take-out.
So, take about 10 minutes in the morning to prepare and at the end of the day, you will enjoy this thick, hearty, delicious soup.
Paired with a fresh salad and some crispy bread, this creamy soup makes the perfect winter dinner.
Begin with a can of cream of celery soup, 2 cups of chicken broth, and 2 cups of water.
Combine these liquids in your slowcooker and whisk together.
Mix in wild rice with seasonings packet, 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
Add onion, frozen vegetables, chicken breast, and a bay leaf.
Set your slowcooker on low temperature for 8 hours.
After 8 hours, remove bay leaf and discard it.
Go ahead and remove the chicken.
Add chicken and 1 cup of half & half to the soup.
Cook on high in slowcooker for another 15 minutes.
Pair this delicious, creamy soup with a fresh salad and crispy rolls.
