Creamy Chicken-Wild Rice Soup

Creamy Chicken-Wild Rice Soup created by Nanners

The boyfriend loves creamy chicken-rice soups, and this is my effort to that end. I like the addition of sherry and a dash of curry powder and it's a great way to use up leftover chicken (and presumably turkey). This soup will thicken up overnight; it can be thinned with more chicken stock without losing flavor; adjust salt and pepper to taste. Almonds are optional but add an interesting crunch; this soup is also "crockpot-able" if you prefer.

    We really, really liked this! My husband, who is not a lover of soup, gave it 5 stars. I hope I can re-create it- I threw in several additional spices and seasonings to give it the full-bodied flavor I was looking for. *Update: made it again, this time with sour cream instead of the 1/2 & 1/2 and sherry! No additional seasonings needed! I used Kitchen Accomplice Chicken Broth, and didn't need to add any salt at all.

    Absolutely delicious!

    We LOVED this recipe. A really thick, hearty soup. We used homemade turkey stock instead of the chicken broth, and whole milk instead of half and half. This would be a great recipe for leftover chicken, but we didn't have any, so we cut some chicken breasts into chunks and coated them in curry powder before sauteing them quickly.

    I have made this twice following the recipe pretty closely both times. I did omit the almonds and added a litle more rice and eyeballed most of the measurements but both times it was delicious! I took it to my step sister after she had her baby and she later requested the recipe. My picky husband also really enjoyed it.
