This winter has been insane. We received several feet of snowfall in a short amount of time and then rain and warmer temperatures came. It is cold and wet and all I like to do on rainy and/0r snowy days is stay inside and watch it from my windows. These days I crave nothing but soup!

This Chicken and Wild Rice Soup recipe comes from my Aunt. Over Christmas Break my entire extended family got together and we had a soup and salad bar. My aunt made this soup and everyone went crazy over it! It was one of the most popular ones there. She so kindly gave me the recipe to share with all of you. Trust me, you are going to want to make this one ASAP!

This soup is loaded with such yummy ingredients and has a fantastic flavor. People won’t be able to stop coming back for second helpings :)

    I'd have to say winter has been pretty tame for us in Atlanta compared to winter where you are, BUT that hasn't stopped me for reaching toward hearty soups lol. This sounds absolutely perfect and absolutely delicious. Bookmarking ASAP!

    Recipe is great but I did change the cooking part it to a crock pot recipe and it turned out fabulous!
