Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 4 hours 15 minutes
Servings 6


  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pkg. (6 ounces) package long grain and wild rice
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped or sliced carrots
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 1/2 cups half and half or milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In your slow cooker, combine chicken stock, rice and seasoning packet, onions, carrots, and celery. Stir to combine.
  • Add in uncooked chicken breasts.
  • Cook on low for about 4 hours.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
  • When melted, whisk in flour.
  • Cook for about a minute stirring constantly.
  • Whisk in half and half or milk.
  • Bring to a boil, whisking often until it thickens.
  • Remove chicken breasts from the slow cooker and chop or shred them into pieces.
  • Pour the white sauce into the slow cooker and stir to combine.
  • Add chicken back in and cook for 15 minutes longer.
  • Taste to see if salt and pepper is needed.
  • Great with crusty bread and enjoy!


This soup is also a great way to use leftover turkey or chicken. Just don’t add it to the slow cooker right away. Wait until the veggies, stock, and rice has cooked for about 3 hours, and then add in the cooked and shredded or diced turkey or chicken. Then, continue following the rest of the recipe directions.
