Slow cooker chicken wild rice soup is easy to make, and so comforting! This simple gluten free recipe is just right for an easy winter meal.
Remember how I said it’s been chilly here in Michigan lately? Well, this weekend it was even chillier, and wet, and grey. Total soup weather. And, total slow cooker weather, because those are the conditions that make me too sleepy to stand over a stove and cook something. Since I’m still in the middle of my 31 Days of Comfort Food, I thought a cozy slow cooker chicken wild rice soup would be nice.
This was a really easy recipe to put together…probably a good thing, because usually you break out the chicken soup when someone is sick, right? I used a wild rice blend that included red and white quinoa, but you could use any rice that you like.
