Great recipe - I used cheddar cheese instead of velvetta and frozen carrots - but followed the recipe otherwise. I fed 4 adults and had a little left over. It is a hearty soup and a good spin on chicken soup. Definitely will make it again. Thanks for sharing.
GREAT for a cold winter day! I've made this recipe a few times, and I always use the 1/2 broth, 1/2 water and it comes out great. I use all wild rice too, then add some garlic salt, onion powder and a bit of chicken bouillon. We eat organic here, so I found a recipe for "homemade velveeta"--I just make 1/3 recipe of that to use for this soup.
This was good, we enjoyed and will make again. Makes a lot of soup and is a good use for leftover roast chicken. I used sweet onion, left out the broccoli, used 6 cups of homemade broth & 2 of water, substituted processed cheese with 1/3 cup shredded cheddar and 4 ounces of cream cheese. Also used leftover cooked basmati rice instead of Uncle Bens. Was good but I didn't put in enough salt & pepper, also tasted like it needed a little "something else". Maybe it would have been better with the seasoning mix from Uncle Ben's rice, not sure! Thanks though, was definitely tasty and a keeper for me!
Yum, yum, yum!! We'd definitely like to add our 5 stars to this one. Followed recipe exactly, except we used 4 cups chicken broth and 2 cups water (6 total) instead of the 8 listed. I think we would have been fine with 5 cups as well as our soup wasn't overly thick. This was a great recipe and one we can't wait to make again. Thanks luvmybge!
fantastic! followed recipe word for word using chicken broth. serving was perfect for my family of 5. recipe was quick, EZ & inexpensive. delicious! great w/beer bread Beer Bread!
We had some leftover turkey from one we had barbecued, so I used that instead of chicken. Also, we like the texture of rice that is not instant or fast, so I had a box of Uncle Ben's original long grain and wild rice blend that I used. It had to cook twenty-five minutes instead of five, but it was delicious. I started off using less than eight cups of water and broth, but ended up putting it all in because it was quite thick. It is a full meal in itself! We added quite a bit of pepper. And we used cheddar because we don't care for Velveeta. Thank you for such a yummy soup recipe!!
We enjoyed this soup. Not too difficult to make. I thought it could use some seasoning.
This is an easy soup to pull together. I used chicken broth, instead of the water. I thought it was very good. The reason I gave it four stars, instead of more...was because you made no mention of seasonings in the recipe. I added salt, pepper and garlic. Otherwise I think it would have been a bit blah tasting. I will make this again. Thanks.
I followed the directions to a tee, but changed up the amount of the ingredients. I used 4 chicken breasts, 2 (32oz) boxes swanson chicken broth, 2 cups shredded carrots, 1 med. onion, 8 stalks celery, 2 Tbsp butter to saute, 1 lb velveeta, 2 cans cream of chicken soup and 2 boxes fast cooking long grain and wild rice. It turned out spectacular. Even my picky 7 year old cleaned her bowl. Thanks for a wonderful soup recipe!!
Simple to make and delicious. Going to be a keeper.
