Chicken and Wild Rice Soup


This Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is rich, packed full of chicken flavor, and has a perfect creamy texture. It tastes like a chicken noodle soup, but it uses a flavorful rice blend instead of noodles. A bit healthier yet as delicious. And it gets its creaminess from heavy cream, no béchamel sauce needed. Simple and perfect!

Producing canned chicken soup is nearly impossible at home, but believe me, the chicken soup is way more comforting when it doesn’t come out of a can. And this delicious homemade soup proves my point. Besides, this is a perfect dish to serve kids who are picky with eating veggies. What is the best part? This one-pot recipe will deliver a comforting bowl of soup to your table in less than one hour. The recipe calls for skinless chicken breast, but you can sub rotisserie chicken instead. Only make sure you add it at the end once the rice has cooked.

To make the Chicken and Wild Rice Soup, you will need the following ingredients:
