Tender cubes of chicken, fresh vegetables and wild rice make this soup hearty enough for a meal. You can't beat the down-home comfort of a warm bowlful. I like to serve it with whole wheat rolls. —J. Beatrice Hintz of Neenah, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW

"Found it to be very bland tasting. Had to add a lot of seasonings, chicken bouillon, a can of cream of mushrooms soup, bacon, and mushrooms, and it still wasn't as tasty as other recipes. Would not make again."

"I added mushrooms and I think 2 carrots might be better. It was good but do think it could use more spices like thyme or rosemary."
