My family and I are huge soup eaters. We particularly enjoy it on the days when it gets really chilly and cloudy. On Wednesday we had another overcast and cold evening, a perfect night for a soup supper. 

I made this warm, savory, and hearty Crock Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup. It's a healthy, fast and easy crock pot recipe for those hectic nights and cold, cloudy days. Simply add the ingredients into the crock pot and then you can continue on with your day. 

I've included some of my favorite soups and chili recipes towards the bottom that I have made this year. 

Crock Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Ingredients

1lb chicken breasts
1/2 small onion, minced
2 carrots, minced
2 celery stalks, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp  salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp dried sage
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
One large or two small bay leaves
2 Tbsp butter 
6 C chicken broth
3/4 cup wild brown rice blend

Directions

1. Place the chicken into the bottom of your 6-quart crock pot and put the rest of the ingredients on top. Then cover and cook on LOW for six-eight hours or until the chicken is cooked through. The chicken will cook in the broth and add more taste to the soup.

2. About an hour or so before serving, shred the chicken then stir back into soup and combine the rice. Cover and continue cooking until the rice is cooked through, approximately thirty-forty minutes. Serve warm with crackers.
