Mel's Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
45 mins (prep 15, cooking 30)
16 ingredients

I could not find exactly what I was looking for so I created this recipe from combining a couple of others. My family loves this served with a really crusty bread. Updated Jan 2013 - I am still tweaking and think I have the perfect soup now. I've made all the adjustments below in the recipe. For reheating the soup you may need to add a couple of tablespoons of milk or half & half to the soup and stir before heating to help with the thickness.
