"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."

Servings Per Recipe: 4
"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!"
"I will change my rating to a 5 once I figure out what it's missing. I have had a lot of wild rice soup living in MN and this is a great soup, but the flavoring is a little....weak. Some spice is missing I think and I followed the recipe to a Tee. I will use this again once I figure out the missing ingredient for my families taste. Thanks for posting!"
"Wonderful recipe! I doubled it because I happened to have enough of everything to do so--my whole family said it was delicious, and I thought so too! Thank you for posting! : )"
"FABULOUS RECIPE!!! This is a much requested soup at my home now, even my kids friends now request it when visiting our home and always want 2nd and 3rd helpings. I like to add celery and broccoli when I make it, I always use leftover roasted chicken to make it (light and dark meat shredded)... it turns out awesome every time!!!"
"Outstanding recipe that I have made serverl times. Only thing I changed was I left out the green onion, bell pepper and the sherry. Even better as leftovers!"
"Wife and I had your recipe for dinner last night and it was superb!! Leftovers tasted even better after night in the fridge. I added some celery that was on hand. This is a real winner for a cold, winter night."
"This was great although it needed a tad of salt also to draw out the flavor...I also substitute celery for the green pepper and added mushrooms when I added the chicken...very yummy and a great hit!"
"Yummy soup. I didn't have any green pepper, but I added celery and then also added mushrooms with the chicken. I will make this again!"
"We had guests coming for the weekend so I quadrupled the recipe. I can honestly say that his was the best soup I have ever had. We will be making it again very soon."
"I'm not rating this soup because, you know, I must have done something wrong. The soup had a very odd undertaste. I wonder if perhaps I put in more sherry than I should have...or if I overdid one the spices by accident. ? Don't know. I think I may try it again because the recipe sounds so yummy."
"This soup was absolutely fantastic!! I did substitute the green bell pepper for a small can of green chilies and it worked great - the hubby would eat it - - and actually loved it! Next time we make this for a dinner party - it was that good!"
"Very good!! Just may add more rice next time though. Also did as ms mac suggested..Thanks!"
"Very good, easy to make. I re served some of the chicken broth and added the flour so it dissolved. Kept lumps from forming"
