Chicken Wild Rice Soup Recipe

Chicken Wild Rice Soup Recipe

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
