Slow Cooker Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken and Wild Rice Soup ~ Copy Cat Panera Soup!  The Chicken and Wild Rice Soup at Panera is my all time favorite soup. How could I not make a copy cat out of something so good.  Best part is it's in the slow cooker!!

Brrrr! It’s Cold Outside! This Polar Vortex has us all bundled up and huddled around the fireplace.  When it’s this cold outside I need serious Comfort Food.  I had been buying Panera’s Creamy Chicken soup almost everyday for a week at lunch at work.  Then I thought to myself why I am paying them for something that I can make myself.

So that is what I did.  I just made probably the best tasting soup that I have ever created. I think that you will all love how rich and filling this soup is.  Even more satisfying is how easy this is to make. We all love our Crock Pots and Slow Cookers.  These guys make our busy lives a bit more productive.

This soup is thick and rich and creamy and full of flavor.  Once you make this you will never be satisfied with any restaurant soup again.  This will warm you through and through and it will stick to your ribs fill you up!

So get out that Crock Pot and make your family a bowl full of love and mouthful of joy!
