Slow Cooker Chicken & Rice Soup
With the weather getting chilly there is nothing more that I love than a slow cooker of soup simmering away on the counter just waiting to be ladled into bowls for dinner.
And when you are coming down with a cold there is just something so comforting about a bowl of chicken soup.
While chicken noodle soup is a classic go to, I don’t always have noodles on hand but I almost always have rice in my pantry.
This recipe for chicken and rice soup is rather easy to put together and the herbs and seasonings make for such a flavorful soup. My secret to taking the soup up a notch though is to add some freshly squeezed lemon juice right before serving.
The lemon compliments the soup and just brightens up the flavor of the soup.
To serve for dinner I like to toss together a simple side salad and set out some bread or breadsticks for dipping into the broth and sopping up the last drops.

Can I Use Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs?

Can I Use Brown Rice Or Wild Rice Instead Of White Rice In This Chicken And Rice Soup?
Absolutely! If you want to use brown or wild rice instead of white rice just add the rice at the very beginning of the cooking time when you add the chicken, broth, veggies and herbs and spices.
