Why I Love This Recipe

A hearty soup that warms you up on a cold winter night.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 Tbsp butter or olive oil
1 still white or yellow onion, peeled and diced
2 medium carrots, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
6 cloves garlic, diced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
6 cups chicken stock (or veggie stock)
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
8 oz baby Bella mushrooms, diced
1 cup uncooked wild rice, rinsed and drained
1 Tbsp finely-chopped fresh rosemary
2 bay leaves
2 cups plain milk
2 large handfuls fresh baby spinach, roughly chopped
fine sea salt and freshly-cracked black pepper


Saute the veggies. Melt butter or oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute for 4 mins, stirring occasionally. Add carrots, celery and garlic and saute for 3 more mins, stirring occasionally. Add in the flour and saute for 1 more min, stirring occasionally

Add in the next round of ingredients. Gradually pour in the chicken stock, stirring the soup frequently as you pour so that the clumps of flour can melt into the broth. Add the chicken breasts, mushrooms, wild rice, rosemary, bay leaves and stir to combine

Simmer. Let the soup continue cooking until it reaches a simmer. Then reduce heat to medium-low to maintain the simmer, cover, and cook for 40-45 mins or until the wild rice is tender - being sure to stir the soup every 5-7 mins so that the bottom of the pot does not burn

Shred or dice the chicken. Use tongs to carefully transfer the chicken breasts to a clean plate. Then you can either dice or use two forks to shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces, and stir it back into the soup

Add the remaining ingredients. Stir in the milk and baby spinach until combined

Season. Remove and discard the bay leaves. Taste and season the soup with however much salt and black pepper you think it needs

Serve warm and enjoy
