I always add garlic, salt, and pepper, but I LOVE this recipe!
This recipe produced a great soup that was enjoyed by my colleagues at our potluck lunch.
Because I was making it in advance, I pre-made several parts of the soup and combined it the morning of the event:
- Precooked the rice (a friend who is a much more experienced cook suggested this so the rice would maintain more of its flavor)
- Precooked the meat (I used ground chicken and ground turkey, seasoned while cooking)
- Pre-chopped the vegetables
I brought everything to work, combined it all onsite and heated it for about 3.5 hours prior to the meal.
I would definitely make this again.
Since the recipe doesn't specify any seasonings, I added about one teaspoon of Herbes De Provence, seasoning salt and pepper to taste. I melted two tablespoons of butter to mix with the flour to make a roux, added some hot broth from the soup to make it smooth and then added the sour cream. I also added one tablespoon of chicken broth base to intensify the chicken flavor. I think the soup is wonderful and my adult daughter who visited over the weekend agreed and took the recipe home to make for her family.
I agree with others who said it's a bit bland. Definitely needs seasoning, especially if you're using unsalted homemade broth or low-sodium broth. Also, I hated the idea of adding raw flour, so I cooked the flour by stirring it in a pan over medium heat for about 10 minutes. The flour will brown and will both taste better and blend into the sour cream better. I also agree with those who say add some of the hot broth to the blending process. I found that by doing this and using an immersion blender I got good results. It tasted better than its aroma would indicate.
this is my go-to chicken and wild rice soup recipe.
Dinner is done! With your slow cooker, it’s always ready when you are. Start with chicken and end up with Greek Chicken, African Peanut Chicken Stew or a Chicken Mole. Better than take-out on a busy night and only you will know…it was so easy.
A Minnesota staple, wild rice is a chewy, nutty-tasting grain delicious for more than just pilaf or Thanksgiving dinner. Soups, salads, and casseroles there's a recipe for everyone.
