Reviews for Chicken Wild Rice Soup
Sort By :
"I made this soup exactly as listed except I did as another reviewer said and mixed the flour, broth and wine together and then stirred into the butter. I also substituted a wild rice/quinoa blend as that was what I had in the house. It is very delicious. Made enough for two meals for the two of us."
"I really, really, really loved this soup!!! I took it to a Wednesday evening church dinner and was asked for the recipe by five different people. I did leave out the wine and the extra chicken broth; otherwise, followed the recipe to a tee."
"The flavor was great. I did add some garlic to the celery,onion, carrot mixture. My husband loved it and he is not a fan of rice."
"This is my third time making this soup & it is excellent. I'm surprised that some of the reviewers stated the soup is too thin. I use the full 2 quarts of broth & with the 3 cups of cooked wild rice, it is plenty thick. Make sure you don't skip the melted butter and flour mixture because that also will give the soup a thicker, heartier, creamier consistency. I do that part differently than what the recipe says. I use a small saucepan to melt the butter. Then I add the flour and 1/2 cup broth (I actually use water) and bring it to a boil till it's thick & pasty. Then I add it to the soup mixture. Works great! I also add 1 teaspoon of salt to the soup - and that is a personal preference."
"This recipe is very good & it freezes well!"
