I hope you love this Easy Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup as much as my family does!
This is one of the first recipes I shared with you here, and it’s still a family favorite! I have been making it for years, long before I had a blog. If anyone is sick at my house, this chicken soup is always the perfect remedy. Even if I’m the sick one, I still have enough energy to make this recipe because it’s so easy!
While this recipe is easy to make, it isn’t exactly a quick dinner. It only takes about 15 minutes of active prep/cooking, but then it has to simmer a while to give the wild rice and carrots time to cook. If you’re in a hurry, you could use shredded carrots and instant rice to speed up the process, but I usually don’t mind making a recipe that takes a while to cook as long as I don’t have to be standing over the stove the whole time. This soup also reheats VERY well, so you can make it ahead of time and then just heat it up when you’re ready to eat.
The way I know this soup is good is it’s on the (very) short list of non-cheeseburger dinners that both my kids like. My youngest tells me all the time that he doesn’t like soup (weirdo), but he somewhat regularly asks me to make “that soup with the carrots.” This soup is hearty, creamy, mild, and just plain comforting. Everyone loves it!
