Day 1 – Chicken N Rice Soup

So today I start my new lifestyle change which actually has a name: WeightWatchers.

My mistake today was ordering a Chik-fil-a sandwich and large Dr Pepper and cookies from McDonalds. I admit, it was a weak moment but I hadn’t eaten all day (which isn’t a good idea, btw) and I had just finished grocery shopping.

My love though, is cooking. I was going to make turkey chili but after realizing that the turkey had gone bad, I decided to make my new favorite, chicken and rice crockpot soup.

Shown above, are the ingredients for the soup except the chicken (I usually use about a pound – I like my chicken). I just throw them all in the crockpot and let it cook.

Ingredients:

2 cans of diced tomatoes (I used rosemary and oregano)

3.5 cups of chicken broth

1 cup of wild rice (the only one I could find is a mix but it’s good)

1 cup of brown rice

Approx 1lb of frozen chicken

Directions:

Add all ingredients and cook on high for as long as needed. At about two hrs, scoop out the chicken and either dice/cut/shred and then put it in.

Cooking...mmmmm....

Cooking and bubbling up a storm
