Reviews for Quick Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
"While I prefer my normal chicken soup recipe with a clear broth better, this was very good for variety, and my adult children liked this one better. My son took some to work and shared with his co worker who also loved it and asked for the recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe directed. Simple to make."
"Good recipe but using canned cream soup makes it extremely high in sodium."
"A bowl of love! This is a great soup to make for someone who is recovering from illness. It is warm and comforting. For home, we kick the flavor up with added seasons of garlic and / or sourthwestern spices to give it a kick. Also, we add a bag of frozen carrots to the pot also. Very nice comforting dish. Easy to make!"
"I make this soup often, my whole family and the grandkids love it. Very easy to make. It is perfect for fall and winter days. I always have to double it to make it last for a fwe days for lunches."
"I cook for an elderly group home. I make this soup often.It is well liked"
"I add only two things that I believe made a great difference and that was a can of 12.5 oz. kirkland breasts and I used a rice measuring 1/2 cup each of brown and whiterice. My wife loves it and so do I !!Thank You for a wonderful tasting soup."
"So Easy and loved the flavor!"
"Very easy to make. Really good. I don't eat much soup, but with this recipe, I think that will change and it works perfectly with my diet."
"The soup has a nice texture but lacks flavor."
"I feel like the odd one out. I followed the recipe to a "T" except that I added only 5 cups of water (it seemed like a lot of water). I was so disappointed in this soup. It was so bland, and tasted like cream of chicken soup with rice in it. I couldn't bare to throw away the whole pot, so this morning I salvaged it by adding some garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Not bad. So it gets three stars, but I won't be making it again."
"LOVE IT! So yummy and easy to make!"
"this soup was SOOOO good! My husband and I are completely hooked on it and the best part is that it is filling, quick, and inexpensive to make!"
"This recipe was so simple and very, very good. Was a good portion size to feed three adults for two days!! Usually when I have soup, it is always better the second day. This was not the case for this soup, definitely best the first day!"
"This was wonderful. I will make it again ,& again. The grandkids loved it also!!!!"
"This came out so much better than I'd expected! I substituted two cups of chicken broth for two of the cups of waters and only used one can of condensed chicken soup. It was absolutely delicious. With a splash of cayenne pepper this is a perfect meal for a cold. It tasted wonderful even before I added the soup so I think I will try it without next time to see which I like better.One thing I did notice was that it probably could have benefited from another five minutes of simmering."
"Quick, easy, even the kids like it!"
"I double this recipe, use leftover turkey, chicken or frozen chicken strips, frozen carrots, frozen chopped onions. Sometimes I add corn. It is fine to delete the celery. It is so easy and tastes so good!"
"My youngest isn't a fan of soup but this is his favorite!Thanks"
"I've loved this Chicken Wild Rice Soup since I first saw it in Taste of Home. I make it all the time and love it each time I make it. It's especially good on a cold night."
"I've been making this one for several years since I found it in the Jan/Feb 2002 magazine. My daughter who was 4 years old at that time, loved it so much that she came to describe how much she love me by her love for the soup. She would often say, "I love you more than chicken rice soup!" It's hard to top a compliment like that."
"Do you use the chicken noodle soup mix with noodles in it??"
