To me, slow cooker chicken and rice soup represents home.

Taking care of my family when they’re sick.

Celebrating the fun of a snow day with delicious smells wafting from the slow cooker.

Because you know working out in the snow is hard work.

Especially when the igloo needs to be “this big.”

The least I could do was spend a little bit of time chopping and dicing.

You know. Slaving over a hot stove slow cooker for at least 3 hours.

Enjoy the soup and embrace the fun of these childhood moments!

Author Marty's Musings


  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 1 celery sliced
  • 3/4 cup brown rice
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • black pepper sea salt and basil to taste
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 10-3/4 oz. cans condensed cream of chicken soup


  • In slow cooker, combine all ingredients and stir with a whisk.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6 hours (or until vegetables are done) or high for 3 hours.


You can use only one can of condensed soup if you want a thinner soup base.
Add whatever vegetables you prefer or leave out the ones you don't like!
I made the chicken broth with chicken cubes and hot water.
Can substitute cooked turkey for the chicken.

  1. How many servings does this recipe make? Wondering if I need to double it as I’m looking to feed a big group at work?

    1. Hi, Wendy. I make this in a 6 quart crock pot and it’s filled about two thirds full. I wouldn’t recommend doubling it but you could probably do 1 1/2 times the recipe. It does make quite a bit but it just depends on the size of the group you’re feeding. Good luck!

    1. Hi, Amanda. Sorry to be so late responding. I think using white rice is fine, especially since it cooks faster than brown rice. I just substituted brown because it’s healthier! Good luck!

  3. This soup sounds delicious! You know what I love even more than the soup though? Your sweet family! What great pictures! Awesome job! So nice to meet you today Marty! Take care. Love, Becky

  4. Can’t wait to try your soup. Slow cooker recipe- right up my alley.
    And you may have the most awesome snow fort in Greensboro. Yours definitely puts our 2 foot wall to shame. Next snow day, send Martin, Stephanie and Tim to my house to entertain Jackson. (I have some painting projects to keep Tim busy!)
    They really make you look like a slouch, huh? (Just kidding!)

    1. Yes, we usually have the snow that hangs around for days while everyone else’s melts. This time, not so much. That was fastest melt I think I’ve ever seen! And yes, I look like a slouch because NO ONE ever takes my picture outside! I usually help at least a little bit and this year my contribution was kicking the snow and ice off the front steps because it was too far in the backyard to get the shovel!

    1. Hey, Kelly! I will pass on your compliment to my family! Building the sand castle and snow fort are daddy’s two important jobs. We haven’t had a good snow in quite a while so the kids were due! I’m the family photographer so I take pics of all the fun and keep everybody fed and happy!

  5. Marty that soup looks delicious! Oh my goodness at the snow…..what fun we would have if we had that much snow in Texas! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    1. Charlotte, I believe you’ve had some ice and mess this year haven’t you? Certainly not as much fun as this now, though! I much prefer snow to ice, but I just like being holed up inside when it’s bad weather!

  6. Oh Marty these soups look yummy. This year we have had a harsh winter and hearty homemade soups have been my favorite go to.
