Chicken Wild Rice Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by DeniseBC

I got this from a Quick Cooking magazine and it has become a favorite. If you have leftovers, you may need to add additional water when reheating because it gets pretty thick after it is refrigerated. 3/5/10--I went back and looked at my original recipe. I tweaked this by upping the veggies, and I probably use more chicken as Hokies suggested. I usually am pretty sloppy with my measurements on this one, so feel free to add more than the one cup!

Denise - this is an excellent soup recipe!! I doubled this and it was perfect! The only thing I think needs increased is the chicken - maybe you meant one pound? It is one of those things you don't really need to measure for a great soup though. The whole family gobbled this down and everyone gave it 5 stars!! Tagged you in Potluck Tag game and boy I'm glad I did!! A definite keeper of a recipe!
