This is a wonderful soup.. I highly recommend it! I made an easy chicken stock from a rotisserie chicken and then followed the rest of the instructions. Didn't have the wine so I skipped it. This turned out delicious!!

This soup is quite good, but time consuming for preparation. I followed the recipe to a "T"..with the exception of slicing the carrots. I gave it a 4 star rating as the amount of flour/butter did not thicken the soup. 1/3 cup flour 6 T butter would probably be much better. Unfortunately the soup was watery

Pretty tasty! Followed the recipe exactly except I added a little more chicken broth and some instant white rice along with the wild rice (I used instant for both and added the last 5 minutes). Chopped the carrots instead of grating them because we love carrots and wanted to really taste them. Oh and I did add a little chicken bouillon seasoning powder. Those changes were minimal the recipe stands on it's own.

This soup is awesome. I cook for a large family so increased a couple of the ingredients. I saute' the onion, celery, carrots and mushrooms in a little butter and add meat from a whole roasted chicken, chopped. Also, increased the mushrooms and added 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup. This is a winner!

Loved this soup, definitely a keeper! I followed it to a t but did not use wine. Was skeptical of the thyme as it had a different flavor and have not cooked with it before. Put it in slow cooker all afternoon and the thyme was a nice flavor at 1/4 tsp. Thank you for sharing.

This soup is awesome! Hot, hearty, and delicious, perfect for a cold winter night. I cooked up some chicken thighs and used quick-make wild rice to make the process a little faster. I doubled the spices (garlic powder, thyme, and parsley) since 1/4 a teaspoon of each didn't seem like much and used wine (I'd recommend using it instead of extra broth!) Also added a dollop of sour cream when I served it, made it even more creamy and yummy. Really tasty, highly recommend.

This soup is wonderful! I chopped the carrots instead of grating them, otherwise followed recipe exactly. I know it says you can skip the wine, but do yourself a favor and don't! It adds such an amazing flavor!
