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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 12, 2014

"Way too much liquid. I eliminated the last 1/2 cup of liquid and it was still too thin. Thickened it up a bit with additional flour & water slurry. Prepare all vegies and ingredients ahead of time. Prep goes fairly fast once it starts."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2014

"It was okay, but way too thin of a soup for my liking. I eliminated the additional 1/2 c. of liquid called for near the end and added another can of cream of mushroom soup and a 1/2 c. of minute rice to thicken it up."
