Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup

This Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup is thick and creamy, but has no cream at all, we are using rice milk instead.  This hearty soup is perfect for cool  fall  nights. I  love the convenience of the slow cooker. The slow cooker does all the work while you are at work or at school. Your have a satisfying meal  ready when you get home.

A very good soup that combines delicious  ingredients rich in flavor and nutrients.

Wild Rice- Citronlimette

Wild Rice

It is nutritious, tasty and highly versatile.

Rinse the rice under running water before cooking. Calculate about a cup of rice to three cups of water. Cook on the stove for 45-60 minutes depending on the variety.

The grains should be chewy, but should not be bent (a sign that they are overcooked). If necessary, drain the rice after cooking.

In this recipe the wild is cooked in the slow cooker, you don’t have to cook the rice in advance.

Wild rice will keep for at least a year in an airtight container, away from light and heat.

    This recipe looks grand. Think I will increase the broth and chicken and forget the milk all together. We sure do love the slow cooker for amazing creations like this.
