What’s better than a warm, hearty bowl of soup on a cold day?
Having a big batch of warm, hearty soup ready and waiting for you after a long, busy day!
This recipe is fantastic not only because it tastes so good, and is nutritious, but also because it’s SO easy to throw together! You just toss it all in the crock pot in the morning and when dinner time rolls around it’s ready! Serve with freshly baked bread (no one said you have to be the one to bake it…) and you have the perfect meal for those cold, hectic days!
What is your go to meal for busy nights??

- 6 cups chicken stock
- 2 chicken breasts (boneless skinless)

It seems like newer crock pots cook much faster than the older ones, so please keep that in mind. My crock pot is newer and cooks very hot. I cook this soup on low on the 8 hour setting and it is done in 4 1/2 hours. I add the rice about an hour before it's done.
|Add everything to the crock pot except the rice, corn, flour and milk. Cover and cook for 8 hours. The chicken will cook in the broth and add more flavor to the soup. |
Halfway through cooking add the rice (or you can stir in already cooked rice at the end).
***Please see the recipe note to determine the best cooking time for you***
|About 30 minutes prior to serving, shred the chicken. In a small container with a lid shake together flour and milk really well and stir into soup. Add Corn. Let cook for 30 minutes more to allow the soup to thicken.|
