  • Summary

    Crock Pot Chicken and Rice Soup. With brown rice, tender chicken, fresh vegetables and a touch of lemon, this healthy soup is easy, hearty and comforting!

    Ingredients

    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 4 medium carrots (peeled and 1/4-inch diced, about 2 1/2 cups)
    • 3 medium celery stalks (1/4-inch diced, about 2/3 cup)
    • 1/2 medium yellow onion (diced, about 1/2 cup)
    • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
    • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 cup brown rice (rinsed and drained (do not swap white rice, as it will cook more quickly and become mushy; you can use wild rice with a similar cook time, though the flavor of the wild rice will be stronger and more earthy))
    • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
    • 6–8 cups chicken stock (divided (be sure to use regular chicken stock, not unsalted, or chicken broth))
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 6 sprigs fresh thyme (plus additional for serving)
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (or more to taste (optional))
