Creamy Chicken & Rice Slow Cooker Soup

All I can say is yum! This was really quite simple to make and delicious too! The family has been asking for more variety at suppertime and they raved about this one! Big thanks to Tip Hero for the idea, I tweaked it a bit based on what I had on hand and it was delicious!

We start by adding just about everything to the slow cooker: carrots, celery, onion, wild rice, garlic, black pepper, italian seasoning, chicken breasts, and chicken stock. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.

Remove chicken breasts and shred, then return to slow cooker.

Next we make a roux! Melt butter in pot on the stove, then add flour to form a paste.

Next, add milk slowly while whisking constantly until milk is incorporated. Cover and cook on medium-low, stirring every 2-3 minutes until the sauce is thick.

    Even though the weather is warming up now, I still enjoy soup for lunches & dinners! The combination of the rice with the chicken is always a favorite for us. I’ve never made soup in the slow cooker yet so this is new to me, I will have to try it.

      I am building a recipe box of slow cooker stuff for when I return to work. It’s just so much easier to throw everything in there in the morning and come home to a delicious supper without having to think about anything!
