Yummy chicken and rice soup - in the crockpot!

Lindsay over at Passionate Homemaking is hosting a Nourishing Crockpot Carnival today to share yummy recipes. Since I use my crockpot quite a bit, I thought I'd join in and share an easy but flavorful soup recipe. It's perfect for these chilly fall nights!

Chicken and Rice Soup

2 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
6 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 med onion, diced
1 cup brown rice
1 teas dried parsley
1 teas dried oregano
1/2 teas garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Put all ingredients in the crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. The rice will puff up and look "fluffy." You can use whatever veggies your family enjoys and experiment with spices too. This recipe is a great way to use up leftover turkey after Thanksgiving dinner!
