Of course I loved this assignment because it meant I didn't have to do much: 1) Find recipe on Pinterest where I already have/can substitute/or cheat most of the ingredients, 2) Raid pantry and refrigerator for those ingredients, and 3) Dump it in a slow cooker.
That's exactly what happened. So this recipe is adapted from another one I found and changed quite a bit to meet my desire not to go to the grocery store...
Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
2 cups water
1 14-ounce can chicken broth
1 10.75-ounce can of Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup
3/4 cup wild rice, rinsed and drained
1/2 teaspoon herbs de provence
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons minced garlic
Chopped onion as desired
3 cups shredded chicken (from a Rotisserie chicken)
Combine chicken, water, broth, condensed soup, rice, herbs, and pepper in a slow cooker.
Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 7 hours or on high for 4 hours.
Cook's Notes: Since I don't miss an opportunity to cut corners, I bought the pre-sliced fresh rotisserie chicken from Trader Joe's. I also dumped in the frozen rice medley packet from TJ's instead of using wild rice.
|The downside: Kelly says it looks a little too close to our cat's wet food...and he's right.|
This was easy and delicious (despite what the photo above looks like)! I loved the consistency and chunkiness of the chicken and rice together. I gotta have a little chunk in my soup. It actually exceeded my taste expectations and I'm sure I'll make it again.
To go right along with Stewp Month, check out No-Stress Beef Stew, also ridiculously easy, and Split-Pea Soup, also made chunky for a little sum'in to bite on.
