Anytime I can make a big pot of soup and have it for a couple days, I’m thrilled. Quick and simple dishes are what work best for me these days and this Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is just that.
Although you can substitute white or brown rice in the recipe, the wild rice give the soup a rustic and nutty flavor that really sets it apart from other chicken and rice soups.
Although the stars of this soup are the chicken and the rice, I love that this recipe is also packed with fresh vegetables like celery, tomatoes, onion, carrots and spinach.
By using a store bought rotisserie chicken I save loads of time and can still make a protein packed meal.
Most soups feel more like a starter than a main meal but this one definitely makes a hearty main course.
If you like this Chicken and Wild Rice soup recipe, you should also check out the Chicken Meatball Noodle soup in my new cookbook, The Healthy You Diet. I’m not sure if it was the meatballs or just the overall flavor of the soup, but it quickly became one of my husbands all time favorites.
