A hearty soup for healthy eating through the winter, Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup!
I feel you.
January is always a needed, yet slightly unpleasant, jolt to my body and routine.
I’m trying to ease myself into healthy eating this year with warm filling dishes that make me feel like I’m enjoying classic comfort food.
My simple Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup is a stellar recipe for this sort of mental trickery.
It’s rich and flavorful, loaded with veggies, rustic wild rice, and shredded chicken, and makes your tummy warm and happy!
Not only that, Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup is low in fat, dairy free, gluten free, and packed with vitamins and nutrients.
Not too shabby for a rich hearty slow cooker meal!
The key to making Healthy Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup so appealing, is to add lots of herbs and veggies for flavor, and to not over cook the rice.
All slow cookers are slightly different. The first time you make this, keep an eye on your settings, time, and the rice. Yours may take as little as 3 hours to cook through, but might take much longer.
Adding a slurry of white wine and flour (or potato starch for gluten free) helps thicken the soup without additional fatty ingredients.
If you would like to eliminate the wine (although it adds a lot of flavor) substitute extra chicken broth instead.
Our Healthy Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup is keeping us on the straight and narrow this January.
I promise, your family will love this Slow Cooker Chicken Wild Rice Soup recipe. In fact, I bet they won’t even notice it’s good for them.
