Slow Cooker Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
The cool mornings, warm days and chilly nights of Autumn have descended upon the Chicago area, which means I am switching into soup mode. There’s nothing better than coming home to a warm pot of soup on a beautifully crispy Autumn evening. This creamy and rich soup is perfect for such a night. It’s loaded with juicy chicken, tender rice and is unbelievably decadent. It probably belongs served in a bread bowl, but I opted to keep my toasty, crusty bread on the side. The best part about this soup is you’re basically dumping everything into the crock pot and walking away. After a few hours, all you have to do is whip up a simple roux, add to the soup, stir, season and you’re done. It’s simple, fast and oh-so tasty. Definitely add this to your soup repertoire for fall and winter!
