Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

 

A hearty creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup, combines the flavors of the chicken and mushrooms, with the nutty wild rice, to make a tasty bowl of comfort food for any time of the year.   Top it off with some chopped parsley and for crunchiness, some croutons.

Wild rice needs to be cooked before being added to the soup.  Use one part wild rice to 4 parts water, boil until the grains split open, usually about 45 minutes, then drain, add to the soup as directed.
