Spinach, Chicken, and Wild Rice Soup

Okay, so I promised I would start posting some recipes that I have created, written down, or used in the past.  Some of you have been my “guinea pigs”, thankfully none reading this have been “victims” of my cooking.  Well, at least to my knowledge, if you felt like a “victim” please let me know!  I’ll make sure to add something special to your next meal.  *evil grin* <img src=”http://s.wordpress.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif”>

Here’s what you’ll need:
1  14ounce can chicken broth
1  10.75ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup
2/3  cup uncooked wild rice, rinsed and drained
3  cups water
1/2  teaspoon crushed dried thyme
1/4  teaspoon ground black pepper
3  cups chopped cooked chicken (chose your favorite way to do this, ask if you need suggestions.)
2  cups shredded fresh spinach

Here’s what you’ll need to do with all that fun stuff now:
1.  In a 4quart slow cooker, combine the water, broth, cream of chicken soup, uncooked wild rice, thyme, and pepper.
2.  You have two options:
       a)  If you are heading to work (best to supervise cooking in my opinion though)  You can cover and cook on low-heat setting for 7 to 8 hours.
       b) If you come home early from work you could cook on high-heat setting for 3-1/2 to 4 hours.
3.  Stir in chicken, spinach and serve.  

Serves 6 people 1 time.  Of course if you really like it you’ll be lucky to get 3 servings!! (recommended serving is 1.5cups per serving.)

If you want to make this a bit more healthy you can use reduced sodium soups.
