Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

I don’t know about you, but here in northeastern PA, it’s downright FRIGID! With the temperatures dipping down into the teens (yes, that’s the HIGH temperature!), it seems to be the perfect time to try out some soup recipes.  I sifted through the pile and came up this recipe. 

The Recipe

Is It a Keeper?

We absolutely loved this soup!  It was very creamy and chocked full of goodness — I really liked the different textures in the soup.   Plus, it came together very quickly — BONUS!   I used the lower-fat versions of most of the ingredients (light cheese, 1% milk, low-sodium broth), added some carrots (because I love ’em) and roasted my chicken — the flavor was fantastic!  At first I doubted whether the soup would thicken nicely since I used 1% milk, but I was pleasantly surprised at the result.  Nice.  Thick.  Creamy.  Warmed me from my toes to my nose!

This is definitely a keeper in my book!  I’ll be making it again.  Very soon.

Here’s a look at our weather forecast this week….and, you thought I was exaggerating about the temperatures!

What’s your go-to dish on those bone chilling days?

  6. I still can not get the print option to work. I had to copy and past the chicken soup recipe. Just wondering if anyone else has the same problem. When I hit “Print” it prints out several pages. Thanks for you help.
