About this recipe: This deliciously creamy soup uses a whole chicken, celery, onion, mushrooms and wild rice. The perfect all-in-one soup.
This is the most delicious soup, creamy and aromatic. I couldn't use the celery, wine or rice but I had a good rich chicken stock made only from a chicken carcass with enough meat on it. I used butter instead of oil. Excellent. - 23 Nov 2014
I didn't use wild rice (?boiled rice)so the recipe was a bit slushy and I didn't add the celery as I don't like it and when used, is all I can taste. I also didn't add the wine. I found adding the margarine made it very rich but I have a delicate stomach. It was a nice recipe though - 04 Mar 2012
This is a wonderful, thick and creamy, tummy pleasing soup, but I did make a few changes to the recipe. Too lazy to make homemade broth, I used boxed chicken broth instead of the water, and added leftover cooked chicken I had in the fridge. Not a fan of vegetable oil, I sauteed the onions and celery in butter. I didn't have any wild rice on hand, but I did have a box of Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice, and I found the accompanying seasoning packet provided a bonus of flavor. The wine is a must and should not be omitted. This is a keeper recipe, with room for personal touches and variations. - 07 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
