Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

Some nights I just don’t know what to make for dinner. I scan through Pinterest mid-day to check and see what I can find. Sometimes I find something great and sometimes nothing sounds good at the time. With the weather cooling down in my neck of the woods it feels like soup weather. I wanted to try a soup I had never made before. I looked through my cupboards to get any inspiration. I spotted a bag of wild rice mix I bought a few weeks ago. Ding, ding ding. I remembered I bought that rice to make Wild Rice soup with. I have had Wild Rice soup before but never attempted making it myself. I came up with this great recipe for Chicken & Wild Rice Soup. It was super simple to, so enjoy!
