Minnesota Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by cookietoze

This is a great way to use up leftover chicken (or turkey) and whatever vegetables you have on hand. It is hearty, tasty, and pretty good for you, too. From Better Homes and Gardens Heritage of America cookbook.

This was wonderful. The only thing I might change is to eliminate the green pepper and/or exchange it for celery. Just loved the dry sherry added in the end. Definitely will keep on my soup rotation for the fall. Luckily picked up a bag of wild rice when I visited Minnesota!
