Slow Cooker Lemon Chicken and Rice Soup

  • Cooking Time:

    4–5 hours on Low
  • Servings:



2 T. olive oil
2 lbs. chick­en breast, bone­less, cut into small pieces
5 — 14.5 oz. chick­en broth, canned (I used reduced sodi­um)
8 c. Swiss chard, coarse­ly chopped (can also use spinach or kale)
2 large car­rots, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 medi­um lemon, halved, thin­ly sliced
1/4 c. lemon juice
4 tsp. grat­ed lemon peel
1/2 p pep­per
4 c. brown rice, cooked (can also sub­sti­tute with cooked egg noo­dles)

Slow Cook­er Lemon Chick­en and Rice Soup was adapt­ed from a Taste of Home recipe that was shared by a friend. I love lemon chick­en, so I made it, but also believe it would be good with egg noo­dles, that is why I have the sug­ges­tion for the noo­dles instead of the rice. But brown rice is YUMMY! Gluten-Free with the Brown Rice too!

  1. Heat a large skil­let with 1 T. olive oil over medi­um heat.
  2. Brown half the chick­en, by stir­ring fre­quent­ly.
  3. Place the chick­en in a 6 quart slow cook­er, and repeat with the rest of the oil adding the remain­ing chick­en until brown, and trans­fer­ring it also the the slow cook­er.
  4. Com­bine the veg­eta­bles, broth, lemon slices, juice, peel and pep­per into the chick­en in the crock.
  5. Cov­er. Cook­er on Low for 4–5 hours on Low.
  6. Pre­pare rice or noo­dles if you choose to use as direct­ed and stir in the crock.
  7. Cov­er and con­tin­ue to cook until all is heat­ed through.
