My family loves this soup and I’ve been making it for years. The thing I like best about this soup is how easy it is. I usually start it around 11:00 and by 5:00 this soup is ready to eat. It makes the house smell so good when it’s cooking. It’s great for those busy nights when you are running kids around in all different places! Just grab a loaf of french bread and you are all set!
Ingredients you will need:
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 pkgs. (4 oz.) long grain and wild rice mix
2 cups of chicken
1 cup of carrots, chopped
1 cup of celery,chopped
5 cups of chicken broth
5 cups of water
pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in your crock pot. I really like pepper so I just add a little pepper before I put the lid on to cook or you can add it in your individual bowls when your eating. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours, or until rice is done. I like to stir it occasionally so the rice doesn’t stick and also to shred the chicken as it cooks. I’ve also used the frozen vegetable medley mix instead of the carrots and celery and then I add 1/2 of the block of cream cheese about half an hour before serving or until the cheese is melted and it’s really delicious.
Really how easy is this soup!!?! I really do love using my crockpot not just for the convenience but also the easy clean up that comes with it. I really hate washing pots and pans! This soup is always in our dinner rotation in the fall and winter months and we rarely have leftovers! I hope you give it a try!
