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.

    Sommer, this looks delicious!  BUT I can’t handle mushrooms.  What would you suggest as a substitute?

    • Sommerposted January 7, 2016 at 8:53 am Reply

      Hi Kristin! Really, you can add any vegetable you prefer, or just throw in extra carrots and celery. :)

  7. Anneposted January 6, 2016 at 8:39 pm Reply

    Do you think I could substitute brown or aborio rice? (Or another grain?) My mom would love this recipe but can’t handle wild rice (makes her sick for some reason)

    • Sommerposted January 7, 2016 at 8:53 am Reply

      Hi Anne! Yes, I think either of those would work fine. :)

    There are few things more comforting than a bowl of chicken soup. It’s one of the few things I crave from my meat-eating days. I can smell its  wonderful aroma  through the screen!

    Hi!This recipe absolutely makes my mouth water,but I don’t have a slow cooker.Can this be done without the cooker?And if so,could you tell me how?I’m not very good with soups,hahaha.

    • Sommerposted June 10, 2016 at 11:26 am Reply

      Hi Christine! Just cook it on the stove top, over low heat, with a heavy lid. You can saute the veggies in the same pot. The cook time on step 2 will be more like an hour.

      • Christineposted June 14, 2016 at 3:48 am

        Thank you so much!I will probably try this out today or tomorrow.Can’t wait for it!Thank you so much again!
