Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Posted By Helen Jackson On January 25, 2010 @ 11:50 pm In Chicken Recipes,Dish Type,Recipes,Soup Recipes | No Comments

This soup thickens on standing as the rice absorbs the liquid. Wild rice is really not rice but a grain and has a lovely nutty flavour.


  • 4 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup uncooked wild rice (you can find this in the rice aisle at the supermarket)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped spring onions
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans (make sure they are fresh!)
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • Approx 4 cups good chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup diced fully cooked chicken (or ham )
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup milk (or 1/2 cup cream 1/2 cup milk)


In large saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil and add the rice.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 50-55 minutes or until tender.
Remove from the heat and let stand for 10 minutes, drain and set aside.

In a large saucepan, saute the onions, carrot and pecans in butter for 1 to 2 minutes.
Stir in flour until blended.
Gradually add stock.
Bring to a boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
Reduce heat and add the diced meat, pepper and wild rice.
Cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until the carrots are tender.
Reduce heat. Add milk and heat through (do not boil).
