"This hearty soup uses pre-cooked chicken. Leftover store bought rotisserie chicken works great. Change up the vegies to suit your taste. Carrots and celery work well."

You & LIG have managed to add another recipe to my growing Best of 2017 list. Made for the Best of 2016 event, I pretty much echo her praise, but did make some minor chgs. I used 3 cloves of roasted garlic since it has a more mellow flavor than raw garlic, added carrot coins & opted to use half & half vs heavy cream. This soup was great, Mike, & will be shared w/our best friends. We have game nites w/them & a menu of soup/salad/dessert has become the std. This yummy soup will "raise the bar" for game nites in the future. Thx for sharing it w/us. :-)

I LOVED this soup. The wild rice, chicken, mushrooms (and additional veggies) were the perfect complement to the creaminess of the soup. I chose to add carrots and celery in addition to the mushrooms, etc... I ended up using 2 full cartons (8 C) of chicken broth since I bumped up the veggies. I think this recipe will make it into full rotation at my house. Thank you!
