Ingredients

    1 lbs. chicken breast

    3 med. carrot

    3 stlk. celery

    1 c. sweet onion

    2 clove garlic

    1 1/2 tsp. sea salt

    1/2 tsp. dried rosemary

    1 bay leaf

Directions

Place chicken breasts, chopped veggies (carrots, celery, and onion) in crockpot. Add minced garlic, seasonings, bay leaf, butter, chicken broth, and wild rice. Cook on low for 4 hours.

At the end of the 4 hours, remove the bay leaf. Shred the chicken in the crockpot -OR- remove chicken, shred, and return to the crockpot. Test the rice to make sure it's done - if not, it may need more time to cook.

To serve: I measure the ounces I need for protein for my meal. Then, I measure the vegetables and rice I need for my meal. Finally, I add the desired amount of broth to the bowl to enjoy a hearty, warming soup! This recipe is so easy to make fit the servings fit your metabolism type. Save the rest for later meals or share with your family.
