Crockpot Creamy Chicken & Rice Soup

Although Spring is here and Summer is quickly approaching, we've still had a few cool days around here. I adapted this recipe to create the perfect soup for when the weather is a little brisk or a storm is rolling in.

What You'll Need:
-1 lb chicken breasts
-1 cup basmati rice
-1 cup finely chopped carrots
-1 cup finely chopped celery
-6 cups chicken broth
-1 tsp poultry seasoning
-1/2 tsp onion powder
-1/2 cup butter
-3/4 cup flour
-2 cups 2% or whole milk

Add chicken, rice, carrots, celery, broth, poultry seasoning, and onion powder to the crockpot. Cook on low for ~8 hours.
30 minutes before serving, remove chicken, shred, and return to the crockpot.
Next, melt the butter in a pan on low. Once melted, slowly add the flour to the butter until well combined. Add milk and whisk until smooth.
Add the rue to the crockpot and stir gently until well mixed. Add additional milk if it is too thick for your liking.
Heat for another 15 minutes and serve.
