This is hands down, the best chicken wild rice soup ever. My parents first tried this recipe at the Grand Casino Mille Lacs restaurant, and some time after that, the recipe was released to the public by Grand Casino. I just loved every time my Dad made this soup. The flavors are perfect and the broth has such a unique taste.
My Dad wasn't sure where his recipe was, so I searched Google and what seemed like hours later, I finally stumbled across this recipe on a post here. After all that searching, I found out both my brother and sister have a copy, and I could've easily gotten it from them. Oh well, this recipe is well worth the search. It's that good. You need to try it for yourself!
Serve this soup with some freshly baked bread and you have yourself the perfect fall or winter lunch! Enjoy!!
Marge's Chicken Wild Rice Soup
- 1 cup wild rice, cooked according to package directions
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup onion, diced
- 1/2 cup carrots, shredded
- 2 cups celery, sliced
- 1/4 teaspoon kitchen bouquet
- 1 1/2 teaspoons nature seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
- 1- 8 ounce package sliced white mushrooms
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 6 cups cold water
- 5 1/2 teaspoon chicken base or 5 chicken bouillon cubes (you can also use chicken broth instead of water and base)
- 3 cups cooked chicken breast, diced
- 2 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
In a soup pot, saute onion, carrots, celery and seasonings in butter until tender. Add mushrooms within the last 5 minutes of cooking and saute with veggies. Slowly add flour, and stir into veggie mixture until combined. About 1 minute. Add cold water and chicken base, and stir until mixture has no lumps. Add chicken and rice and heat until temperature reaches 180 degrees on a kitchen thermometer. Add whipping cream and bring temp back up to 180 degrees. (If you do not have a thermometer, just simmer the soup until heated through)
