Slow Cooker Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

I love my slow cooker! It allows me to make “complex” flavourful meals  with minimal effort and there are always leftovers.

I was craving a good Chicken soup, so I decided to go down the wild rice route and it turned out pretty delicious if I do say so myself.  And it tasted even better the next day!

Slow Cooker Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

2 chicken breasts cooked and shredded

1 box chicken broth

1 cup of water

1 cup wild rice

¾ cup diced carrots

¾ cup dice celery

1 tsp sage

salt and pepper to taste

1. Put all ingredients except for the wild rice into slow cooker.  For low setting, allow 6-8 hours.  For high setting, allow 3-4 hours.
