This lacked a little bit of flavor but otherwise it was a really hearty and filling meal.

Excellent recipe I use everytime I make a turkey. I make home made turkey broth using the carcas and leftover turkey meat in this recipe. I also, per others suggestions, add potatoes, use a whole onion, uncle ben's wild grain ready rice, and double the recipe. IT IS EXCELLENT and always a hit in my family, after cooking I put the left overs in a casserole dish and bake to reheat, even better the next day!!

This is my husband's favorite soup recipe. I lighten things up by using Fat Free Half and Half. I also add 2-3 cloves of garlic to the veggies when I saute them. I also like to add potatoes to make it more hardy. I almost ALWAYS double this recipe.

BEST soup recipe to date. I used chicken stock instead of broth and I used Uncle Bens ready long grain / wild rice. I also bought a cooked chicken from Sams and used the breast meat....quick and easy. I made it tonite for the 3rd time this month

Very good. I used some cooked white rice (1 cup) instead of the wild rice and it was yummy. Will definitely make it again!

This is the BEST chicken and rice soup recipe I've ever made. My family LOVED it! It kept us warm during a snow storm-thanks for sharing!

needs more flavoring.

I liked it. I thought it would be bland, with only pepper being added. But the rice and chicken broth had a nice, mellow flavor to it.I also used fat-free half and half.
