Skinny Crockpot Chicken Wild Rice Soup

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.
Serves: 6

  2. Made this recipe a couple of days ago. Loved it! It was a tad bit too lemony for my husband, so I’ll probably do just zest half of a lemon next time 🙂 I thought it was perfect, though!
