Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

A comforting chicken and wild rice soup full of herbs and veggies



  1. In a large pot, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add celery, carrots and onions and cook until soft. Add garlic and saute until fragrant. Add white wine and allow to evaporate
  2. Add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil to the pan, then the flour. Cook for a couple minutes, stirring, to rid the flour of its raw flavor.
  3. Add salt, pepper, thyme, bay leaves then slowly whisk in the first cup of the chicken broth. Add the remaining broth, rice, chicken and bring to a simmer. Whisk in warmed half and half.
  4. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Serve hot.


Some chicken broth brands are very salty. If that is the case, your soup may not need any salt. If it’s a low sodium brand, you may need to up the seasonings!
