Chicken Wild Rice Soup

chicken wild rice soup

Chicken Wild Rice Soup is one of the first things I started making regularly when I was first married nearly 20 years ago.  It’s a Minnesota classic. I got this recipe from a Byerly’s cookbook that I got as a newlywed.  I adapted it slightly, mainly by adding chicken instead of ham (both taste good, however).

Frugal Tips:  This is a freezer-friendly meal.  Make a double batch and freeze it before you add the half and half.
