chicken and wild rice soup …

May 7, 2010

As you can tell, I love to make soup.  With the weather still deciding if it is spring or not, this soup has been keeping me warm on some cold spring days.
It is not only healthy, but it also is a quick to throw together when you are wondering what is for dinner last minute.  That is why I love this quick and easy chicken and wild rice soup.  You just have to throw all of the ingredients in a pot and simmer away and it’s done in no time.  And, it’s even faster for dinner if you chop all the ingredients the night before.
