Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!
This is just plain ole' delicious comfort food at its finest. I looked everywhere for a good Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice recipe, and when I couldn't find one I just put together a few ideas from other recipes and tweaked it to this one, and goodness gracious it was delicious!
Now, I will say this is a bit more work than my normal slow cooker recipes (I really like the kind where you just dump it all in), but it was oh-so-good. I think if I try it again I'll skip using the steps at the beginning and leave out the flour and butter to make up a more brothy soup, but if you're looking for something to stick to your ribs this hearty slow cooker chicken and rice soup is for you.
Slow Cooked Chicken & Rice Soup
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1 onion, chopped finely
- 1/2 cup chopped celery
- 1/2 cup carrots
- 1/2 cup flour

- 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- Melt butter on stove top.
