This is my family's favorite soup. I use Rice-a-roni wild rice mix - two boxes. I cook it first with only one of the spice packets - saving the other for the chicken soup mix. I combine it as it says but I don't like al dente rice. It also comes out a little less soupy and more like a casserole. My family wants this every week!!!

Very good soup. I added more chicken. Freezes well.

I have not made this yet, but it wouldn't accept that option. Can the leftover soup be frozen?

Yes, the leftover soup can be frozen. Enjoy!

Great soup - I used double frozen Brocolli with cheese, instead of adding extra cheese. I used butter instead of oil and grated 2 large carrots. I boiled 3 chicken breasts and cubed them into 1/4 cubes and then added wild rice and flavor packet. A medium boil for 25 minutes and then after dishing up bowls I topped with shredded cheese. Yummy and very tasty - I will make this again!

The next day this soup is a thick, gloppy rice mess. Also not enough chicken flavor.

I used fresh broccoli & cauliflower and cooked it in the 5 cups of water. Next time I'll add diced potato and sliced mushrooms to the pot too. I sauted the onions & shredded carrots & added them to the soup pot when the veggies were tender. I used diced Amish butter cheese because I had it on hand and I didn't want my soup to have a cheddar flavor. I think that I could have used mozzarella cheese or potato flakes. This recipe will be included in my meals plans every winter from now on.

I have not made this yet, so I cannot rate it.

Can I use regular cheese? Do not like to use processed cheese in anything.

You can use regular cheese or can of cheese soup. Enjoy!

Regular cheese does not melt well and I would not recommend it.

Looks great

I buy the rot chicken and take off all the skin and debone, cut in small pieces and freeze for when I need it. I usually bake my chicken and cut in small pieces. I buy when on sale breast, thighs and legs. I rub a small amt of olive oil on it, season with paprika, lemon pepper, garlic, onion, celery seed, Italian seasonings, dill weed and just a tiny bit of salt. (learned this from Ina Garten aka barefoot contessa) and bake. I take all the meat off the bones, cut in small pieces and freeze till I need it. For salads, soups, casseroles this is the way I do it.

It might be a great recipe but not with supermarket rotisserie chicken. That is loaded with fat, from the continual basting I guess. Try canned chicken.

rotissieri chicken is not basted the fat from the chicken does it as it turns while it cooks

A Really good and comforting soup

Once a month I roast a chicken for Sunday dinner. I'm always looking for recipies for the left over chix which would be similiar to using a store bought chix. Looking forward to trying this in the near future. Really appreciate that the rest of the the recipe is items that are always in the kitchen!

I Tried it Very Good..... Thanks Mr, Food, PAT...

Wonderful soup! I followed the recipe except added mushrooms and a little less cheese. Rich, thick and sets a little heavy but husband could not get enough of it. Definite keeper!

Very easy.

I added mushrooms and roma tomatoes, this soup is delicious, great 2 the taste buds and very easy 2 make


This is a good hearty recipe. I added a few fresh sliced mushrooms when sauteing the onion and carrot, also a dash of sherry just before serving mellows it out. Bob Crawfordville
