Looking for a creamy, steamy bowl of comfort that will fill you up and warm you from the inside out? Look no further than this Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice Soup. Now that it’s really cold out and everything is covered in snow, all I want to do is stay in, snuggle up in cozy slippers and a fluffy blanket, read a good book and eat this soup. My mom has been making this recipe for a while (she adapted it from another blog) and it reminds me of my favorite soup from Panera (of the same name). I’ve tried a few other similar recipes but none have held a candle to this one. Definitely one of my favorite soups.
This recipe freezes well, so it’s perfect to make a big batch and then freeze individual servings. Then a hot, comforting, satisfying bowl of soup is only a microwave or stovetop warming away!
On a soup kick? Try Cheeseburger Soup, Spaghetti & Meatball Soup, Butternut Squash Soup, Chicken Tortilla Soup, White Chicken Chili, Herbed Chicken & Dumplings, Buffalo Chicken Chili or Roasted Tomato Basil Soup.
