I’m all about slow cookers lately. They are saving my life these days! I have been leaving the house with dinner already cooking by 9 o’clock. It’s wonderful to come home in the late afternoon with little to do for dinner. I open up the top add a few more sides to our plates and Voila! Dinner is served.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Rice Soup DSCN4632

Most of the time everyone enjoys what is on their plate or in their bowl.  This one needed a little more doctoring, but not much.  I forgot about the bacon garnish, but the rice adds a great touch.  This soup is as creamy as a nice risotto, but not too rich.  Serve it with some nice artisan bread and it’s the perfect bowl of comfort during a cold winter’s night.  Add this one to the list of tasty Better Homes and Gardens recipes.
