A Soup for the Holidays

Hello everyone! Amanda here from Old House to New Home. Can you believe Halloween is over and it is time to start thinking about the holidays? This is truly my favorite time of the year and I love the crisp days and holiday excitement in the air.

Quick Chicken Wild Rice Soup is the perfect comfort food

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it is time for those comfort food recipes to come back into the meal plan rotation, and this Quick and Easy Chicken Wild Rice Soup is definitely a big warm bowl of comfort!

A Soup that Connects Us

Growing up, every single time I was sick, my grandmother made me chicken and rice soup.

Our houses were separated by just a fence, so I remember her sending a pot of soup up anytime I was under the weather. Such a fond memory now that she is gone and I thought of her the entire time I made this soup.

Soup is the perfect comfort food for winter! Chicken Wild Rice is one of our favorites

Isn’t it crazy how some recipes just make us think of loved ones and bring back such great memories? Those are my absolute favorite types of recipes. They are comforting for the tummy and the soul!

Easy to Make

This easy soup recipe takes less than 30 minutes, so it is perfect for a week night!

However, you can definitely let it simmer longer if you have the time!

The shortcut here is to use a store bought rotisserie chicken. That saves you the time of the cooking the chicken yourself.

Once the veggies have cooked, you just add the chicken and rice and let it simmer until the rice is tender. So easy! You will love this soup on cold, busy holiday nights!

How do I make Chicken Wild Rice Soup?

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive
instructions, please see the recipe card
at the end of this post.

Step 1

In a large pot, add the two tbsp. of canola oil and turn heat to medium high. Add carrots, onions, and celery. Season with 1/2 tsp salt. Then stir and cook over medium heat for 5-6 minutes, or until veggies are tender.

Step 2

Add rice to pot and half the seasoning packet. Add 1/2 the pepper and the marjoram. Stir well. Then add evaporated milk and 4 cups of the chicken broth. Turn heat to high and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover the pot and reduce to medium heat. Let simmer, covered, for 15-20 minutes, or until rice is tender. Then stir well to prevent rice sticking to the bottom of the pan.

Step 3

Once rice is tender, add the cup of milk and the cooked chicken. Stir well. Then add additional chicken broth if too thick and add additional salt and pepper if needed. Serve or continue to let simmer over low until ready to serve. Soup will thicken the longer you let simmer.

    A great way to use leftover rotisserie chicken. I used 5 cup low sodium chicken broth at the beginning. I did not add the milk until the very end when the rice was cooked through. I like a slightly thickened soup so I add 1 tbsp of flour to the milk and added it to the soup. I brought the soup to a very gentle boil and cooked, while stirring, for another 4-5 minutes to loose any of the flour taste.I did not use salt and I didn’t think it really needed it. I would definitely omit the salt if not using low sodium chicken broth. I did not have marjoram so I used savory, but thyme would work very well.
