Great basic recipe, I love that it's mostly chicken broth, not milk or cream. However, since other reviewers said it was bland, I added thyme and poultry seasoning to the butter, onions, carrots, and celery. I also tasted after the recipe was finished and added a little more salt, a little more poultry seasoning and a couple tablespoons of sherry. Now the soup went from good to excellent!

Just add a little thyme, poultry seasoning, and sherry to make it magnificent!

Great soup recipe! This recipe went right into my cook book. I used another reviewer's suggestions and cooked a box of Uncle Ben's seasoned long grain & wild rice cooked according to the directions. My DH like hot sauce in his. Thank you!!

A pretty good, and most importantly, easy soup recipe! We had a bunch of leftover regular white rice, so we used that instead. I think the wild rice would add some great flavor and color, but white worked just fine. We also added a bunch of garlic, some thyme and a few dashes of sherry. I added a bunch more pepper to mine, but my DH just had his as is. We had it with some roasted garlic bread and it was a good and filling meal!
