GREAT RECIPE!! I made only minor changes. I used 1 box Rice-a-Roni 4.3 oz. Long Grain and Wild Rice instead of the 1 cup Wild Rice. (Only because I live in Hawaii and Regular Wild Rice was expensive) I did not cook it ahead of time I just added it to the soup (w/o seasoning packet). I used flat leaf parsley (cilantro) because I had it in my garden. The soup was too thick for my taste so I increased the chicken broth to (3)14.5 oz. cans instead of the 1 quart of chicken broth and increased the milk to 3/4 cup. GIVE IT A TRY!! Read More

EXCELLENT soup. This is a very easy to make and thick luxurious soup. The only changes I made was adding a little pepper and also a cup or two of water to thin it a little. Very thick as written of course maybe was too generous with the carrots and ham? Regardless very good and we will make it again. Read More
