As much as I hate the cold winter days, I also love them. I just love snuggling up in a blanket on the couch and warming up with food like hot chocolate, chili, and soup. But what’s even better are recipes for comforting meals that are almost effortless like Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup and this Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup. There is just something so warm and cozy about the combination of chicken, wild rice, and mushrooms. Don’t you think?

Enjoy this bowl of creamy Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup. So delicious and simple, loaded with nutritious veggies!

One of my favorite ways to make soup is to cook it in the slow cooker. It’s so easy to just throw it all in early in the day before the kids get crazy and I get too tired. I also think cooking it low and slow helps the flavors come out more. Though I have to say, I think soup actually tastes better the next day because the spices and other flavors have had time to marry together.

This Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup is incredibly tasty and simple to make!

For this Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup, you toss the chicken breasts, veggies, garlic, herbs, and chicken broth into the slow cooker and cook on low. After a few hours you then add the flour/cream mixture along with the rice and mushrooms and cook until the rice is done. These things are added later so they don’t get too mushy.

When the rice is tender, use two forks to shred up the chicken. It will just fall apart. No need to dirty up a cutting board. Wow, am I lazy or what?! …but I know I’m not alone.
