On Our Plates: Homestyle Chicken Rice Soup

Prepare yourselves for another heart pounding post about what we've been eating these last four months (since Felicity's birth) that doesn't have to be chewed whilst pinching your nose. This recipe is super easy on the tastebuds and the bank account. It's so simple, we were pretty sure it was going to be a dud. Luckily it turned out delicious. Probably Gotta be the butter. This is another freezer meal to be made in the crockpot.

Homestyle Chicken and Rice Soup
1 lb Chicken Breast chopped into pieces
1 bag frozen mixed vegetables (corn, carrots, beans, peas)
4 T butter
1 box chicken stock (added the day of cooking)
1 C rice (added last 30 minutes)

Label gallon freezer bag. Add chicken, vegetables and butter to freezer bag and freeze. When you're ready to cook, empty bag into crockpot, add the box of chicken stock, and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Add 1 cup rice for last 30 minutes of cooking.

Serve with dinner rolls to mop up the broth at the end. And fruit if you're feeling ambitious, the stars align, and no one is crying during dinner prep time. That's a pretty big "if".
