Looking for a 30 minute, fast, delicious weeknight meal your whole family will love? This recipe for Chicken and Wild Rice Soup checks every box!
I love it when a few simple ingredients come together to make something wonderful, especially when you crave comfort food to give your spirit a big hug. That’s why I’m so excited to share this recipe for Chicken and Wild Rice soup with you.
I received a copy of this recipe from my friend Shannon after trying it at a church function a couple weeks ago. I streamlined it a bit- I wanted to share a one pot, 30 minute version with you that had all the delicious taste of the original recipe. It was easy thanks to a store bought rotisserie chicken :0)
Diced onion and celery are cooked in butter (kinda a lot of butter, but hey, this is comfort food) to soften. Then sprinkle some all-purpose flour over the butter and veggies and stir it around a bit to cook the flour-y taste out. Chicken broth, heavy cream and diced carrots are added with a pinch of salt and brought to a boil to cook the carrots. Then simply stir in your shredded rotisserie chicken meat and cooked wild rice and it’s done!
The soup is lightly seasoned by the wild rice, which is cooked and flavored with a seasoning packet (Thank you Uncle Ben’s quick cooking wild rice!) which keeps this soup simple and easy to throw together.
I always recommend keeping your pantry stocked with chicken bullion cubes or powder so anytime you want to make soup, you have instant chicken broth available.
This soup is absolutely delicious and is perfect for getting you through chilly nights or any time you need a little extra comfort in your menu :0) Share your comments on this recipe below, and please rate the recipe- Thx!Print
