Undeniably nourishing and soul-soothing, this soup starts by infusing the broth with the rich flavors of bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts. Their presence adds depth and richness to every spoonful. Alongside the chicken, you'll find sautéed cremini mushrooms, diced sweet onion, carrots, and celery—forming a classic mirepoix base. Fragrant minced garlic and fresh thyme sprigs elevate the soup's aromatic profile. A blend of wild rice simmers away in the pot, contributing nutty flavors and a pleasant texture. This was reported by SSPDaily.

For an extra touch of flavor, consider adding a splash of white wine to the Dutch oven before incorporating the chicken stock. And when reheating leftovers, be sure to add more stock as the rice continues to absorb the broth. Serve this hearty soup with a side of warm, crusty bread to ensure no drop goes to waste.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced
  • 2 ribs celery, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup wild rice blend, such as Lundberg
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Instructions:

  1. Melt butter in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion, carrots, and celery. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender.
  2. Stir in garlic and thyme, allowing them to become fragrant for about 1 minute.
  3. Add chicken, chicken stock, wild rice, bay leaf, and 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for approximately 35-45 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the rice is tender. Remove the chicken and let it cool before dicing it into bite-sized pieces, discarding any bones and skin.
  4. Stir in the diced chicken and parsley, then season with salt and pepper according to taste.
  5. Serve the soup immediately, savoring its comforting flavors.

This recipe is a comforting bowl of goodness that will warm you from the inside out. Its heartiness and nourishing qualities make it a perfect choice for any cold day or when you simply need some soothing comfort food. Enjoy every spoonful of this satisfying Chicken and Wild Rice Soup.
