Wild Rice Chicken Soup

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 30 min.


5 servings

This hearty soup from our Test Kitchen is chock-full of tender thigh meat and veggies, pleasantly seasoned with savory and garlic.


  • 1/4 cup each chopped carrot, celery, green pepper and onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped peeled parsnip
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 3/4 pound bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried savory
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup cooked long grain and wild rice


  1. In a large saucepan, saute the carrot, celery, green pepper, onion and parsnip in oil for 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add the broth, chicken, savory, garlic, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.
  2. Remove chicken from broth. When cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones and cut into bite-size pieces. Discard bones. Add chicken and rice to soup; heat through.
