“Mommy, I don’t feel good!” is a saying I know all too well these days. Most commonly uttered by my 5 year old son. The one who seems to have his immune system compromised the most as of late.

So what’s a Mom to do when her munchkin doesn’t feel well? Snuggle the wee munchkin, of course, but also whip up a batch of her ever-so-popular Slow Cooker Herbed Chicken with Rice Soup.

I came to love Herbed Chicken with Rice Soup when I was a youngster. However, when I was served it back then the soup came from a can. To me, I found the soup from a can delightful, but now that I am older and wiser… I realize that soup can taste 100 times better when homemade.

In order to coerce my son into attending school yesterday — because heaven knows he was far too hyper to be unwell enough to stay home — I promised him that when he came home he would be greeted with a heartwarming bowl of my Herbed Chicken with Rice Soup. I have never seen a kid agree to go to school so fast and without hesitation. Ha.
