Crock pot chicken and rice soup

Tried this recipe on pintrest and loved it! Everyone in my family liked it, and it is made with chicken, brown rice, and 8 cups of hidden vegetables! The only thing I changed in the recipe is that I put the chicken in frozen, and then I pulled it out before serving and put it in my mixer with the paddle attachment on low for 30 seconds to make it shredded chicken. I guesstimate that this soup has about 120 calories per 1 Cup (for the moms and dads that want to look good in a swimsuit in a couple of weeks for vacation;). Click on the link for the website I got this recipe from.

The Ingredients.

--2 boxes of chicken broth
--1 cup of uncooked brown rice
--1 cup of water
--1 cup cooked, shredded chicken
--1 1/2-2 cups almost purreed vegetables (I used celery, carrots, brocolli, cauliflower, a red bell pepper, and green onion). Just fill up your vitamix to the top with veggies. Then puree into a mush and put the muss in the crockpot.
--1 t herbs de provence (sounds fancy)
--salt and pepper to taste after cooking

The Directions:
using a food processer, blender or hand chopper, chop up all the vegetables into whatever sized pieces your family likes.
I don't have a food processer, so I used the Vita Mix.

Then cook on low for 10 hours, or high for 5 hours (I am just guessing).

Serve with a whole grain loaf of bread and a little butter and jam.


  1. excited to try this. since having the babies (and our dinners have been completely unimaginative) our second has decided not to eat anything except pasta and bread. doh! it seems to be mostly visual though (he can be tricked), so I'll definitely be trying more of this kind of thing. makes me want a vitamix.

  2. This is one of my fave comfort food. As a matter of fact, I am a huge fan of rice and this rice soup is really good. Your recipe is different from the one I am doing but I would love to try this one really soon.
