Easy Slow-Cooker Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

I had my first Cream of Chicken & Wild Rice Soup at Panera Bread a little over 15 years ago, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Although I don’t know the secret to Panera’s soup, this easy slow-cooker creamy chicken and wild rice soup is just as delicious.


With the change in weather, I find myself relying more on slow-cooker meals because it’s convenient, comforting and easy to whip up. It’s perfect for weeknight dinners and the whole family will enjoy it. If you double the batch, you can use the leftover for lunch the next day. I use this type of slow cooker which makes it easy for me to make a big batch but to be honest, I need to step my game up, so I can get something like this. I mean seriously, is that just amazing.


Anyway, here is a step by step video to make life even easier. You’re welcome.
