Wild Rice and Chicken Vegetable Soup was created to use up the remainder or leftover meat from my Tuscan Lemon Chicken recipe. Checking through the pantry and the freezer, I pulled out a package of Wild Rice Blend, a bag of frozen fava beans, and some frozen butternut squash cubes. I also found an unopened spice called Peri Peri Seasoning. The ingredients sounded good to me, so this soup was created. Be sure to add any resulting juices from the roasting pan you used to roast your chicken in.
This delicious chicken soup is not only healthy and hearty, but surprisingly delicious and just perfect for our rainy nights. This hearty chicken soup filled with vegetables and wild rice is guaranteed to hit the spot.
When I am in a hurry, I purchase an already roasted chicken from Costco and use it in the recipe. Saves a lot of time and hassle. You could also easily cook this soup in your slow cooker.
