This winter feels like it’s never going to end. I can’t wait until spring produce and recipes, but for now another freezing day…. Another pot of soup! This one is a super easy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup. I started with an already cooked rotisserie chicken. I love to pick up a rotisserie chicken when I’m at the grocery store to use when Im short on time for things like soups, salads, and wraps. This whole soup cooked in under an hour-just the amount of time the rice takes to cook.

If you aren’t eating wild rice you should be! It’s Ah-mazing with a great almost nutty flavor. Wild rice is also a great source of protein, minerals, B Vitamins, and Folic Acid. This recipe for Rotisserie Chicken and WIld Rice Soup is not only delicious, but is packed with nutrition.
For making soup, I typically use a ceramic large Dutch Oven. I have a Le Creuset, but there are less expensive options that also work well :
