Heat up butter in a large pan on the stove to medium and saute onion, carrots, celery, mushrooms, and garlic until slightly tender, about 3 minutes.

Slow Cooker Wild Rice Soup – adding rice to the slow cooker

Love homemade soups?

There’s nothing better than curling up with this slow cooker wild rice soup to warm the soul. This wild rice soup with chicken and veggies is delicious, hearty, and also happens to be pretty simple to make right in your slow cooker!

Love easy slow cooker meals? Try this!

There’s a little upfront prep work to chop and saute the veggies first, but I promise that little bit of effort makes for a yummy, flavorful soup. Once the sauteed veggies are in the slow cooker, the raw chicken breasts get added, along with the broth. I actually used Better Than Bullion chicken base and water with this soup, and it worked out great.

Things to Consider: 

  • The wild rice blend gets added about halfway through the cooking process and turns out tender and delicious by the end of cook time.
  • I also made this soup creamy by adding plain Greek yogurt at the end of cook time (it’s a little lighter than adding heavy cream), and it worked out yummy.
  • You can definitely season this soup as desired. I chose to use Herbes de Provence, as it’s my favorite poultry type seasoning blend. It usually includes a beautiful blend of savory, thyme, rosemary, basil, tarragon, and lavender flowers.

Slow Cooker Wild Rice Soup - closeup of the soup in a ladle

We’re WILD over this chicken & rice soup!

Serve with a crusty baguette for soup perfection! I adore slow cooker soups, and this one’s a delicious and easy soup to add to the rotation. A good bowl of leftover soup is my favorite for lunches, so I can’t wait to have even more tomorrow! If you have the sniffles or feeling under the weather, this soup would be super comforting!

    It sounds really good. Have you tried this in the Instant Pot yet? If so, how do you adjust the time?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      I have not, but If I do, will update ya!

    • Maya

      I cooked this in the Instant Pot tonight and it turned out great! I put it on the Manual/Pressure Cook setting for 30 minutes and then did a quick release and it turned out great!

      • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

        Oh my gosh -thanks for sharing your instant pot directions!

  4. Deb

    Another winner from Miss Lina! The temperature is supposed to be 30 degrees colder on Thursday than it is today, so this will be a perfect dinner then!

  5. Lori

    Mmm Mmm good!

  6. Bunny

    Hi Lina, looks delicious. Was wondering when do you add the mushrooms? And did you mean to list baby bella mushrooms?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      yes! will fix – with the onion, celery, and carrots. Thanks!!

  7. Diana

    Whenever I try to use greek yogurt to make soup creamy it comes out looking yucky. For example, tried subbing Greek yogurt for sour cream in beef goulash. What am I doing wrong? Soup too hot?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ya I would cool it first a little more. Or use heavy cream if preferred.

    • Blue

      Yogurt (esp. low-fat) has a tendency to curdle when heated. Even if you cool the dish before adding it in, every time that you reheat it, the yogurt will be prone to curdling. In a dish like goulash, sour cream is what I would use instead since it is traditionally added in anyway. HTH!

  8. Angela

    Looks delicious!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks so much!!

  9. Robyn

    We were just talking about wild rice soup last night. Your recipe looks even better than the one I remember.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks so much! Enjoy 😉

  10. Winnie

    Can I sub the wild rice blend with brown rice. Can’t find them in our grocery store

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I believe that’d work too. 👍

  11. Tracy

    I wish the recipes were posted earlier in the day. My most frustrating struggle is figuring out what to feed these people every dang day! Yesterday’s post is today’s menu. Thank you!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for the feedback and enjoy the soup! 😀

  12. Jen

    The recipe sounds delicious! When do you add the parsley?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      At the very end 👍

  13. Winnie

    Made the soup today. Hubby bought the instant wild rice blend and the low fat yougurt (they don’t seem to be able to get the right ingredients lol). Any way I used brown rice and a cup of heavy cream. Hubby loves it. He will have the leftover for lunch tomorrow. Thank you Lina for the recipe

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! That’s so great 😀- thanks so much for sharing Winnie! Yum!

  14. Renee

    It was delicious and I didn’t even add any spices/Herbes de Provence 👍🏻😋

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Good I’m so glad it worked out! Yay!

  15. Crystal

    I made this tonight with some cheddar biscuits and it was delicious! We subbed heavy whipping cream for the yogurt and finished it with additional salt and pepper. 4 out of 5 stars…but we don’t count the 5th…he likes nothing! Perfection on this yucky 20 degree day!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! So glad it was successful and thanks for the review!! 👏

  16. scamp

    I just made this and it is great!!! Thank you again. Quick question… do you think I could freeze this? I really appreciate all of these good recipes!!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay! Thanks so much for your feedback! Yes I believe you can. If the cream or yogurt separates, I think you can whisk to combine again.
