I love Chicken and Wild Rice Soup!  It is delicious and filling!  Plus it is a one pot get it done kinda dish!  It is perfect for lunch the next day and dinner leftovers.  You can also easily freeze this soup for another day!  My version is quite creamy so if you like your chicken and wild rice soup thinner, just add water and it will do the trick!  I used low-fat sodium chicken broth and didn’t have to use much seasoning.  I decided to use the meat (white and dark) from a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, this saved me loads of time plus the flavor was rotisserie heaven!  Of course you can always bake your own chicken to use like I did for my Chicken Pita with Creamy Tomato and Cucumber Pita recipe or cook it in the same pot as your soup but the pre-cooked option worked perfectly for this busy mom!  I hope you enjoy this recipe, my kids had two bowls the night I cooked this so to say the least they gave it two thumbs up!  My husband well he was like ummm post this baby!  Don’t forget to request more recipe love!
