Here's a fairly quick soup that includes chicken and wild rice. It's a big hit during hunting season or on a cold, wintry day. A meal in itself!

Excellent and easy. A very thick and hearty soup. Great with homemade bread. I used a box of Uncle Bens Wild Rice and found that at the end I had to add one more can of chicken broth. It soaked up all the moisture. No problem it was a quick fix and it solved the problem. Read More

This really had no taste to it at all. It's only semi-creamy and I don't understand the point of the rice if all you will do is pour the liquid over it! Read More

Trick to this soup is using uncle Ben's original 23 herbs and spices Wild Rice WITH the spice packet. You don't need salt if you use this. Read More

I really enjoyed this recipe and it's quite easy to make. The only change I made based on other reviews was to a tbsp of chicken bouillon soup base. It added a bit more flavor and salt. I also included quite a bit of salt. It's very hearty almost a stew so I may add more chicken stock/milk next time. Will definitely make again. Read More

Loved this soup. Kept it in a crock pot 1/2 day while my friends and I baked cookies. We all had coffee cups of wild rice soup throughout the day. Read More

I mixed up dough in my bread machine and served this delicious recipe in homemade breadbowls. It was the perfect meal for a cold night. I doubled the recipe and my husband ate it for nearly every meal for three days. He then complained I had not made more. The only downside was that it required quite a bit of salt to bring out the flavor. Even so definitely a keeper! Read More

This was great. I used shallots in place of the onion and I think next time I will leave out the celery (personal preference). Used half of a rotissere chicken and uncle ben's wild rice mix. You can get everything else together while the rice is cooking. Very quick and delicious everyone at dinner loved it. Thanks. Read More
