Reviews for Chicken Wild Rice Chowder
"Excellent recipe I use everytime I make a turkey. I make home made turkey broth using the carcas and leftover turkey meat in this recipe. I also, per others suggestions, add potatoes, use a whole onion, uncle ben's wild grain ready rice, and double the recipe. IT IS EXCELLENT and always a hit in my family, after cooking I put the left overs in a casserole dish and bake to reheat, even better the next day!!"
"The whole family loved it. Excellent flavor. Definitley will make it again."
"This is my husband's favorite soup recipe. I lighten things up by using Fat Free Half and Half. I also add 2-3 cloves of garlic to the veggies when I saute them. I also like to add potatoes to make it more hardy. I almost ALWAYS double this recipe."
"Very good. I used some cooked white rice (1 cup) instead of the wild rice and it was yummy. Will definitely make it again!"
"needs more flavoring."
"I liked it. I thought it would be bland, with only pepper being added. But the rice and chicken broth had a nice, mellow flavor to it.I also used fat-free half and half."
"This is a meal within its self - delicious ."
