|skinny crockpot chicken soup with rice :)|
the recipe comes from carla at lets get cooking and is pinned to my recipe must do's blog. it could also have been pinned to my weight watchers board on pinterest as carla has kindly worked out the points+ for a cup and a half of this soup as 5 :) i plan to have home made bread with it, so i may need to add some more ;)
i love a meal like this, you make it in the morning, all you do is throw a list of everyday ingredients at the crockpot, turn to low, and leave it until you are ready to serve dinner. now that is surely an awesome recipe in anybodies language! i didn't have any wild rice so substituted some organic brown rice in instead, that was the only change to the recipe i made.

|all in the pot, then walk away :)|
|come home to the smell of a delicious soup that doesn't disappoint!|
outcome: this is going to be such a winter staple, peeps loved it, the adults thought it was awesome, and i felt like i had completely pulled the blanket over everyone's eyes because it was so quick and totally simple to make. the rice makes it almost creamy without the fat associated with a usual creamy soup. the crockpot does all the work for you i put bone in chicken thighs and by the time i served it up the chicken was self chopped and the soup was ready to eat instantly that i opened the lid. the bonus ... there is enough left to feed the family tomorrow night for dinner :oD
my thanks to carla at lets get cooking for this perfect winters recipe. it is one i am sure i will make again and again over the next couple of months as it's easy, delicious, and i didn't spend more than 15 minutes in the kitchen organising it :)
