1 Hr 45 Min

There's nothing more warm and cozy than a big bowl of chicken soup. And when we're looking for a way to add even more heartiness to our bowls, noodles aren't the only option - wild rice is great too! Our Chicken & Wild Rice Soup is a warm-ya-up favorite that's full of flavor. 

What You'll Need

  • 1 (3- to 4-pound) chicken, cut into quarters
  • 4 quarts water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken base
  • 3 carrots, cut into chunks
  • 3 celery stalks, cut into chunks
  • 2 onions, cut into chunks
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (8-1/2-ounce) package cooked wild rice

What to Do

  1. Rinse chicken under cold running water. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, combine all ingredients except wild rice; bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 1-1/2 hours, or until chicken falls off bones. Cool slightly, then separate chicken from bones, discarding bones. Add chicken pieces and rice to soup, heat for 5 minutes and serve.

Just some questions...what about the skin on the chicken. Remove before boiling or after. When the chicken and veggies have been boiled that long, isn't all the flavor gone. Throw them away and add fresh chicken and veggies? I've heard that browning the chicken first adds a lot of flavor. If anyone can help me with these questions I'd certainly appreciate it. I need this soup and the canned stuff has too much sodium and other preservatives that aren't allowed in his diet.

Cooking the chicken with the skin on adds fat to the soup, but also adds flavor. If sodium is an issue, you should use a low sodium chicken broth instead of water and chicken base. That chicken base is loaded with salt. I absolutely agree with you about the veggies I would cook the chicken first, remove it and then add the veggies. When the veggies are cooked, add the cut up chicken and the rice to heat through.

Hate to tell ya, but that's not wild rice in that video.
