I’m sitting here wearing my new fleece onesie (thanks hubby for the early xmas present), binge watching Netflix, with a box of kleenex at my side. Yup, I’m home sick today. Luckily, I made this soup this past weekend while I still had energy. Everything cooks together in one pot and blends the flavours of chicken stew with the earthiness of mushrooms and wild rice. You can easily make this soup vegetarian by omitting the chicken, which I accidentally did once and only realized when I sat down to dinner and there was no chicken! It was still delicious. I’ve also made this soup using cooked chicken or turkey, so a great recipe to keep on hand for using up leftovers post thanksgiving or christmas dinner.
