Chicken Wild Rice Soup

by Megan

I made this for dinner last night, it is so incredibly time consuming to make but so incredibly yummy!!! We LOVE it!! I have found it works best to have everything prepared beforehand so you can add it as you go. We make a triple recipe each time and freeze a bunch. It takes a some time to prepare and cook. Here’s the recipe.

Chicken Wild Rice Soup


  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp minced onion
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 3 c. chicken broth
  • 1/2 c. celery
  • 1/2 c. shredded carrot
  • 2 c. cooked wild rice (1/2 c. dry rice)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 c. half & half
  • 1.5 c. cooked & cubed chicken


  1. Melt butter in a skillet. Add onion until soft. Add flour to make a roux.
  2. Slowly add chicken broth. Make sure to get all the lumps out.
  3. Add celery and carrots. Cook until soft. Add cooked wild rice, salt, pepper, chicken and half & half.
  4. Simmer on low for 15-30 minutes to let all flavors mix together but do not let it come to a boil.
