Crock Pot Mushroom Wild Rice Chicken Soup
I love making crock-pot recipes often for several reasons. Prep is usually easy, then it finishes cooking in the crock-pot. Giving me more time, which is great if you are busy.
Stock the Crock
I have been working my way through several recipes from this cook book, (We did get the book for free to review) Stock the Crock by Phyllis Good, Creator of the bestselling Fix-It and Forget-It series
My daughter, Sammie spotted two recipes she wanted me to try. Phyllis’s mushroom risotto, and her slow cooker Chicken and Wild Rice Soup recipe.
Chicken and Wild Rice Soup, is on page 37 of Stock the Crock. Let me say, this recipe was a big hit, creamy, and so delicious.
Crockpot Mushroom Wild Rice Chicken Soup
We adapted it slightly. Here’s how to make it. First: Pre spray your crock pot or slow cooker, with Pam.
Then you slice up your mushrooms, chop your onions, green onions, and mince your garlic. Put into crock pot, and pour in your chicken stock. Add pinch of salt, and ground pepper. Stir it, together.
Buy pre cut chicken, or cut up your chicken breasts (The original recipe calls for chicken thighs, which might be even more flavorful but, we prefer leaner, boneless skinless breasts. Overall, I don’t think it affected the taste.) Lid, and cook for 4-1/2 hours.
When chicken is cooked, add wild rice. (If needed, take out your chicken to cut it up or debone, and return to crock-pot / slow-cooker.)
Once wild rice is cooked about 45 minutes later, make a flour water mixture to thicken soup. Add cream, and butter. Stir, and serve. Optional, add garnish with more mushrooms, and green onions. This is seriously, so easy!

The first recipe I tried from the book was a whole chicken dinner in the slow cooker. Which I served when my daughter, and her family were down here during the fires in Northern Ca. Everyone really enjoyed it.
But, this creamy mushroom soup is my favorite recipe so far. You can preview the cookbook, which comes in paper-back, library binding, and on Kindle.
