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!"
"This is the BEST chicken and rice soup recipe I've ever made. My family LOVED it! It kept us warm during a snow storm-thanks for sharing!"
"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."
"LOVE this soup. It is on my "favorites" list. I've also used the base of this soup for pot pies, chicken ala king and other casseroles with just some small adjustments here and there. It is delicious!!"
"This is a meal within its self - delicious ."
"Made this tonight and it came out delicious and so easy. I made a few changes to recipe. I used frozen sliced carrots, another cup of broth and another 1/4 cup half & half to make more liquid because it was too chunky. I also added 1/8 tsp. ground thyme for flavor and a pinch of salt. Yummy! I will make again!"
"My husband does not like rice, so I substitued some cubed up baked potatoes I had left over and added a bit of thyme. It was very good. I also think it would be good using the small flat noodles in place of the rice - just not too many. Anyway, we loved it!"
"i made this with olive oil (a healthy fat) instead of butter and fat-free half and half for a healther version. I used Uncle Bens Whole grain medley (ready rice... zap in the microwave for 90 seconds) Its a great cooler weather soup and figure friendly too!"
"I couldn't find Ready to Serve rice so I had to precook my rice that took away from the simplicity of the recipe but it was worth it. I think I would like a bit more seasoning to taste in mine next time (my 13 year old who loves to cook said he thought it needed a bit of something more in seasoning) I also needed more liquid in mine as by the time the second and third person dished up it was pretty much just rice and no chowder. Will make it again though for sure."
"Easy quick and very good. Nice comfort flavor"
"This is now on my list of favorite soups to make when it's cold out."
"this is the ultimate comfort food, I also added the same amount of white pepper makes it just a littlezipper."
"I LOVE this recipe!!! sooo easy and so comforting! I also double it - in fact its so good and we eat so much of it i may have to triple it next time! lol"
"I am so glad I tried this recipe. It was delicious! I am already planning on making it agian and will double the recipe next time."
"Very good and creamy."
"My family loves this recipe. I have to double it so we have left overs for lunch. This is very easy to make and very good on a cold day (we make it in the summer too, we love it so much!)."
"The rice in the recipe is ready-to-serve, in other words it is already cooked. But I am sure it would work if you cooked rice and just added it at the end like the ready-to-serve package. I like using the packaged rice because it saves me time. This my family's favorite soup recipe and I make it frequently during the colder months."
"I have the same question about the rice whether precooked or not. Could 2 cups of brown rice and wild rice mixed work if precooked?Thre recipe sounds good but trying to figure out the rice question before I make it."
"Is the rice package precooked or does "heat through" mean actually cook the rice?"
