This time of year always calls for a good soup recipe. I absolutely love crock pot soups because they’re super easy and never disappoint in the flavor category. I start the morning by throwing my ingredients in the pot, and by the evening — we have supper! The cream of mushroom soup in this post is healthy, tasty and hearty with a lot of veggies and protein. This is exactly what you need to warm your bones and fill your soul on a blistery winter day.
I’ve enjoyed this recipe for years from Campbell’s, but switched up some of the ingredients after experimenting and liking this version even better. I will sometimes add raw mushrooms to the crockpot towards the end and let them sit for the last hour in order to soak up the flavor of the soup. This soup is essentially a chicken and rice dish. What’s your favorite crock pot soup recipe you’ve been using lately?
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces)
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream Mushroom Soup
1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
1 1/2 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Chicken Stock
6 cups fresh broccoli florets
6 medium carrots, peeled and thinly sliced (about 3 cups)
1 3/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 1/2 cups uncooked instant white rice
-Stir 1 cup cheese, soups and broth in a medium bowl.
-Place the broccoli and carrots into a 5-quart slow cooker. Top with the chicken. Pour the soup mixture over the chicken.
-Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours or until the chicken is cooked through.
-Remove the chicken from the cooker. The chicken will become shredded. You may have to pull it apart, but it will be easy to do. Turn off the cooker. I make my rice in a separate pot, and then place my steamed rice on a plate this top it with the chicken and veggies. Campbell’s way of adding the rice is stirring the rice into the crockpot, and top with the chicken. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes or until the rice is tender and the cheese is melted. Stir the rice mixture before serving.
