Crockpot Chicken and Rice Soup

It's January.  And in New Jersey that means lots of cold weather!  So this month I plan to make lots and lots of soup! 

I started the year with a slow cooker full of Chicken and Rice goodness! 

Your Shopping List for the Crockpot Chicken and Rice Soup:
  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 6 cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 heaping cup diced carrots
  • 1 heaping cup diced celery 
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup rice (I used a wild rice blend)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 pinch (about 1/4 tsp each) dried rosemary, thyme, and sage*

Now Let's Make the Crockpot Chicken and Rice Soup:
  1. Add all ingredients to your crockpot
  2. Cook on low for 4 hours
  3. Remove chicken and shred with two forks
  4. Return to crockpot and cook for additional 30 minutes on low
  5. Serve with crackers or bread

*for this soup, I used dry herbs...if I was making this in the spring or summer I would have used fresh herbs and increased the quantities
