Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup
Wild Rice Soup is a Minnesota staple. And using the crockpot allows you to make this creamy, comforting, and filling soup with little effort. Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup is family friendly and perfect for soup season. Wild Rice Soup and popovers were always a favorite in our house growing up and we always had the pre-made, frozen version from Lunds & Byerly’s in our freezer. But, making it homemade with this recipe is surprisingly easy.
Ingredients You’ll Need for the Wild Rice Soup:
- Chicken Stock or Broth
- Chicken Breasts
- Mirepoix: Onion, Celery, and Carrots
- Spices: Dried Thyme, Dried Rosemary, Dried Bay Leaves, Salt and Pepper
- Wild Rice
- Sliced Almonds – You could omit these, if you prefer, but I love the texture they add
- Butter and Flour – to make the roux that thickens the soup
- Milk – I used whole milk, but you could use a lower fat milk, if you’d like
- Fresh Parsley
This recipes makes a BIG batch of soup. Since it’s kid-friendly, it’s perfect for a comforting, winter family meal. If you do have leftovers, they’ll keep in the fridge for about 5 days. Be prepared for the soup to thicken further as it sits. When you go to reheat, you can always add a little more milk to thin it out.
