Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: enough for 4 people 1x


Easy creamy wild rice soup that is comforting, hearty, and fast to make.


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery (optional)
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup cream or half and half (or use evaporated milk in a pinch)
  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
  • 1 package Uncle Bens Wild Rice Soup
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube


  1. Cook wild rice according to package directions with bouillon cube. You can throw it in a rice cooker to make it easy!
  2. Saute carrots, onions, and celery in butter until tender. Add flour slowly and stir until thickened. Add broth and stir until well combined.
  3. Add chicken, cooked rice, and cream. Warm thoroughly for at least 5 minutes. Turn to low until ready to serve. The soup will thicken up. Make sure not to boil it.
  4. This soup freezes well, so you can make it ahead of time and pull out just in time for your party.


This soup freezes well, so make a double batch and freeze half for another meal.
