12 cups chicken broth
6 cups cream
1 tablespoon each of oregano, basil, thyme, rubbed sage
1.5-2 tsp of salt
Chicken shredded/chunked— whatever you have left over
Carrots to taste
Celery to taste
Onions to taste
Wild rice, already cooked— how ever many cups suit you (I use about 3-4)


Gluten version:

1.5 cups of butter and 2 1/4 cups of flour

Gluten free version— cornstarch

In the gluten version— you make a roux by melting the butter, adding all the spices, then slowly adding flour, then slowly add the cream, then slowly add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Make sure the cream and broth are room temp at least so you don’t curdle the roux.

Then add the rest of the ingredients, dump in the crockpot and let simmer for the day to cook through the carrots and celery and onion. Or can simmer on the stove top.

In the gluten free version you skip the flour part of the recipe simply reserve about 1/2 cup of cream to mix with the cornstarch. You then add that at the very end of cooking to desired thickness.

I typically make my own chicken broth and I do it with mirepoix so I just reserve the mirepoix after it’s cooked and use it in this soup if I want to be able to eat it right away without waiting for the vegetables to have to cook through.

I made this yesterday (half the recipe) and we had it for two nights. It's SO good! I cannot imagine making the whole recipe. Half a recipe filled my 8 quart instant pot. I don't know how big my regular slow cooker is, maybe it would hold the whole recipe. But I'll definitely make it again.
