Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Total Time
Prep 30 mins

A fast and easy recipe that is chock full of chicken, rice, and veggies. And in my opinion, it can't be beat for taste, even by more labor intensive soups. I modeled it after a soup my husband and I loved from a sandwich shop where he used to work.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Start the rice according to the package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, chop the vegetables.
  3. In a large pot over medium heat, cook the onion, celery, and carrot in the butter until soft- 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Stir the flour and seasonings into the vegetables.
  5. Add the broth slowly, stirring to blend as you go.
  6. By now the rice mix should be done. Add it, the chicken, and the milk.
  7. Adjust the seasonings.
  8. Heat through, and voila. Soup. Yum.

Very good! And, even though my hubby thinks I cook too many chicken meals, he said he likes it! One of my 9 year old's favorites! Instead of cooking rice, I used 2 pouches of Uncle Ben's Brown & Wild Rice (w/o preheating). It made cooking that much faster!

Very tasty and easy too! This was a great use of leftover chicken. Everyone in my family gave it a thumbs up! Next time I will use slightly less broth to make it a little thicker and creamier.
