Mr. Food: Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

What You’ll Need

  • 1 (3- to 4-pound) chicken, cut into quarters
  • 4 quarts water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken base
  • 3 carrots, cut into chunks
  • 3 celery stalks, cut into chunks
  • 2 onions, cut into chunks
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (8-1/2-ounce) package cooked wild rice

What to Do

  1. Rinse chicken under cold running water. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, combine all ingredients except wild rice; bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 1-1/2 hours, or until chicken falls off bones. Cool slightly, then separate chicken from bones, discarding bones. Add chicken pieces and rice to soup, heat for 5 minutes and serve.
