Hey moms and dads! Let the crockpot do your dirty work while you do your daily work! I love chicken and wild rice soup and will often order it if I see it on the menu at a restaurant. But I rarely made it at home because of the lengthy cooking time of wild rice. I decided to try to create a recipe using the crockpot so I could fix it and forget it, and this is it!
Skinny Chicken & Wild Rice Soup
- 1 cup finely diced carrots
- 1/2 onion, finely diced
- 3/4 cup uncooked wild rice
- 1 small sprig fresh rosemary
- 2 bay leaves
- zest of one lemon
- 1/4 tsp ground pepper
- 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 42 oz chicken broth
In a 4 to 4-1/2 quart crockpot/slowcooker, combine carrots, wild rice, onion, rosemary, bay leaves, lemon zest and pepper. Top with chicken breasts and pour chicken broth over all. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours, or on high for 3 hours. Remove chicken and shred with a fork. Add chicken back to crockpot. Remove bay leaves and rosemary sprig and serve.
