Chicken Wild Rice Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
I'm originally from Minnesota, where wild rice grows in abundance and is very popular in recipes. This soup has been part of our Christmas Eve menu for years. To save time, I cook the chicken and wild rice and cut up the vegetables the day before. —Virginia Montmarquet, Riverside, California

"Great taste; made as noted. Very hearty soup--plenty of chicken! (I just boiled two boneless, skinless chicken breasts.). Will continue to make this soup, which consistently gets rave reviews."
