Reviews for Chicken Wild Rice Soup

"I've tried to make soup twice a week this winter & have tried different recipes, so have many to compare this to. My only change was to add 3 cloves garlic. It was too thin for my taste so after trying it, I added 1/2 cup barley & recooked the soup until the garlic was done. Much better. It also needed salt & pepper."
"I really like this soup & it is so easy to make !! It is really great on a cold winter day or night !!"
"I began making this after I saw it a few years ago and really like it. Because of illness in the family, I had to do a few substitutions to get so much sodium out of it but there are easy ways to do that now...no-salt added broths, no-salt added cr. of mushroom soup, etc. What I like best about this soup is something a few people know me for...I don't like to waste food. I always put leftover rice in the freezer and when I have enough, I make this soup. The same with leftover chicken. Of late I've been adding a cup or two of chopped broccoli. Good."
"Really good flavor! Don't skip the wine if you can help it. It really adds. Was cautious with the broth as others said it was a little too much. I made the soup with one quart broth and at the end when I stirred in the wine and canned soup I added one more cup broth. Think that is just the right consistency. Pretty quick to throw together as well. Will make again."
"So good! Added course ground pepper, extra veggies and extra rice. Used white wine at the end (instead of the extra chicken broth option), which added extra flavor. I served it with garlic butter biscuits, which were used to sop up any extra broth (YUM!)."
