Just wondering what some ideas are for breakfast….I’m not much of a morning person so I need something quick and filling. In warm weather I like smoothies but not in Ohio in January….LOL.
I made this for dinner tonight. It’s one of my favorite comfort meals (and it’s pretty easy to throw together!). Mine comes out so hearty it’s more like a stew than a soup. I make it about once a month.
I make mine gluten free because my son has celiac disease. I’ve included my GF** modifications at the end of the recipe.
Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice Soup
4 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 package of long grain and wild rice**
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup all purpose flour**
1/2 cup butter
2 cups half and half*
1 cup grated carrots
1 cup diced celery
Combine broth, water, carrots, celery, chicken and rice (along with seasoning packet) in a large slow cooker. Cook on low for 4-6 hours. Take out chicken and shred with two forks and then add back into slow cooker. In a small bowl combine salt, pepper, and flour. In medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour mixture by tablespoon to form a roux. Whisk in cream, a little at a time, until fully incorporated and smooth. Stir cream mixture into slow cooker and then let cook on low for 15 more minutes.
**GF modifications: Carolina Long Grain & Wild Rice mix is gluten free; substitute white rice flour (I like it better than regular flour for thickening)
*I substitute 1% milk instead of half & half and add a little more carrots to amp up the veggies
I always forget the celery because I never have it in the house!
Love seeing all of your great recipes and meal ideas here everybody, thanks so much for sharing them!! I’m getting some great ideas from you all 🙂
I love Jessica’s balanced philosophy of no dieting and exercise – I really do. That is one reason why I am a Jessica fan. I don’t like to ban food or feel like I can’t live a “normal” life. I struggle however with “listening to my body.” It always seems to say “eat” and never suggests that I eat spinach or beans. I like to be told what to eat and need that disciplined approach. With that in mine, what works for me, may not work for everyone else. My husband and I started following “Fitness Blender’s Carnivore Meal Plan” in May. It is a 4 week plan of clean eating available for 9.99. It includes lots of fruits, veggies, whole grains. I love that it has calorie plans for 1400, 1800, 2200, 2600, and 3000. I follow the 1400 plan with an additional recovery smoothie sometimes. Hubby follows the 3000 with an additional recovery smoothie. We have “tweaked” some recipes after doing the plan through once. The plan has regulated my hormones and has helped change hubby’s PH (less acid reflux). Just an option if you are learning about health or need a balanced plan that is more structured. This plan has no strange ingredients, protein powders, …
Hello team! Keep up the great work! 😀
If you love Caesar’s salad, here is a healthy recipe (with yogurt and skinless chicken breast, not mayo and bacon) from Jamie Oliver’s channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyB_GZNpCQE
