Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup-crock pot!

 This slow cooker soup couldn't be easier, simply throw all the ingredients in the slow cooker (except cream) and like magic, six to eight hours later, you have a delicious creamy entree worthy soup! The rice is tender and the chicken is ready to be shred. I saw this on Facebook and thought, this sounds like a winner!

Wee Bear was ecstatic over this delicious soup, scooping out seconds and having a bowl for lunch the next day! Yes, it is that good! His only comment, "you can make this any day"!

Perfect for Sunday night dinners, football Sundays or a mid week dinner....just come home after a long day and it is ready to go! The perfect soup!
