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 when making Slow Cooker Wild Rice Soup:
- 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.
