Chicken, vegetable and rice soup

It's been a while since I've posted about food, so I thought I should mention last night's dinner.  I made a pretty thick soup/chowder and everyone seemed to like it...

Here's what I used, though I wish I had used more chicken and maybe added some garlic to the crockpot, along with some pepper at the end...

1 whole onion
4 celery stalks
2 chicken breasts cut into half dollar sized pieces
some leftover frozen carrots and corn - we had more corn than carrots due to a Boog-sized rabbit ;)

I let all that cook in the crockpot with some chicken broth all day.

When I got home at the end of the day, I used this cream base that I found on  We didn't have any pepper apparently, so I couldn't use that...but I did add a tablespoon of minced garlic and let the cream base heat a bit more.

Anyway, once the cream base was done, I added it to the crockpot, including the extra chicken broth, which made it a little less thick - I wasn't sure if it was going to be too thin, but it was actually thicker than I would have liked since I served it over rice for me and The Boy...Boog decided he didn't want rice with his "soupa" but ended up eating a big bowl of it.

My sister and her friend also had some and said it was good...Surprisingly enough, there was enough for all 4 adults, Boog, The Boy had a second bowl and there's some left in the fridge...
