A good place to start! As written I found it a bit thin even though I added additional wild rice (maybe 1/4 cup-it was what was left in the bag). Next time I'll hold back the 2 cups of water and add as needed at the end. Used dried thyme (it' winter) and some cremini mushrooms that were hanging out in the refrigerator. Just bought a dried blend at Costco that I may use in the future. Great use for a rotisserie chicken or leftover turkey.
Will cook the wild rice separately next time!
I made this soup last evening and it was very good. The vegetables were still held their crunch which I love. I will definitely make this again.
I thought the recipe was amazing!!! However, I made everything in the crockpot.
This is the first time I've used (true) wild rice in a recipe. It was delicious!!! I cubed raw chicken breast and added it to the sauteeded vegetables. Cooked it a bit before adding homemade chicken broth (no water). I also added sliced baby bella mushrooms and a pinch of red chili flakes, and a couple tablespoons of soy sauce for extra depth. My husband, brother, and myself all loved it!! It was even better the next day. Amazing flavor.
This recipe is so tasty and easy! I added cayenne pepper and chipotle pepper to add a little heat. I also used canned unsweetened coconut milk instead of heavy cream. Turned out awesome!
This recipe didn't work well for me. I used wild rice, which takes a very long time to cook, so it absorbed all of the chicken broth that I put in there to cook up the rice. Next time I will cook the rice separate from the soup and add to it after it's cooked. The flavor was a bit bland, I needed to add a lot of salt and pepper in my bowl.
Nice, but with my palate, I would have stuck with all chicken broth. Otherwise, nice!
This recipe is very similar to a recipe my mother has been making for years. Her version has toasted almond slivers sprinkled on at the end. A family favorite!
Can you freeze?
This is sooo good. I add just a splash of lemon juice before I serve it. I know it sounds kinda gross, but it adds an extra element of flavor.
The rice you are using is not wild rice. It is a mixture of different rice grains including a small proportion of wild rice. Even thought many grocery stores call this mix wild rice it is inaccurate at best.
Excellent chicken wild rice soup! Spot on for what you expect of a well made restaurant soup. Only change was, that I thickened it and added some heat. That was my husband’s request :) . Everyone loved it!
I just made this for my son, he's one. I didn't put in the heavy cream so it wouldn't spoil so fast and I added diced portabella mushrooms!!! Omg is this soup delicious! Easy to make and very hearty. What I did is separate what we would eat at the moment and added the heavy cream to that, to give it that creamy factor! It is beyond fantastic even without the heavy cream for those who can't tolerate thre lactose... my picture shows the soup without the heavy cream
So. Delicious! I’m printing this one out. And that’s saying a lot because I don’t waste printer ink. It’s a keeper!
This looks great and looks like a soup begging for a couple strips of bacon chopped up and thrown in!
Best use of Thanksgiving turkey!
Easy to make, my family loves it!
