Crockpot Lemon Chicken Rice Soup

I am trying to get ready for the Summer. That usually means cracking down on what I eat and spending more time exercising. Thank the Lord I live where I do and the gym does not have to enter this scenario. I can walk outside, jog, hike, paddle board, boogey board, bike ride, attempt to surf, dance, and so forth. I do have to watch what I eat a lot more this time of year, so I tend to eat a lot of broth heavy soups. This soup is a great way to serve your family a warm wholesome meal, with out a lot of work and few calories. I need to make this again and freeze it for when I am sick. I recently had the flu and had to choke down a canned soup. I don't wish to have to do that again any time soon.

  2. Great idea to make this ahead of time. Nothing worse than canned soup when you're not feeling well.
