I’m not huge on creamy soups, so I wanted to share a Chicken and Wild Recipe soup recipe without:

  1. Cream
  2. Flour
  3. Mushrooms

Between preferences and intolerances, we can be a little boring here in the Derkson house but it’s the way it is.

Bring on the comfort food!

For me, soup hits me right in the heart. There is something about watching the leaves fall outside my kitchen window while simmering a pot of soup.

It’s oh so cozy.

So bring on the Hunter boots, fuzzy socks, and blanket scarves. We’re cooking up some chicken and wild rice soup today with my friends at Chicken Farmers of Canada.

Made by a chicken farmer

So why should you support local Canadian Farmers? Let me share a few reasons:

  • Canadian chicken is grain-fed, free of hormones and steroids.
  • Canadian chicken is raised here in Canada according to nationally-set, mandatory food safety, and animal care standards.
  • You’re supporting family farms that (in turn) give back to your community.

This chicken and wild rice soup recipe isn’t Whole30 compliant (because of the wild rice) but it is a clean eating recipe that will make you feel good both inside and out. The aroma that wafts throughout the house as the soup simmers is heaven, oh how I love sage.

To mince the sage, roll the herbs together and slice through with your knife. Do this a few times.

What’s your favorite herb/spice? Tell me in the comments.

TBK’s Pro Tip: Can’t find fresh sage? Use poultry spice instead. It’s not the same, but it will be similar as it contains ground sage.

This soup is perfect for picky eaters, I don’t want to say it’s bland (total wrong choice of words) but it’s great for young kids who don’t like “too much” going on. You know? My sick husband said it hit the spot and me? I added a little extra S&P to mine and a dash of hot sauce because I love hot sauce in soup.

  1. This sounds divine! I am saving it – can’t wait to make it!

  2. You totally had me at wild rice. I am a sucker for wild rice as a side dish – truthfully, never imagined it in a soup but what a fantastic idea! This is definitely a dish for the colder weather!

  3. Yummo!! Your Chicken and Wild Rice soup is going on our menu for next week, it looks like a hearty soup that is filling too. It will be perfect for the winter nights coming up soon here in Missouri. Keep up the great work and I’ll be sure and share with you how the family likes it, but I’m sure they will love it.

  4. We are looking for some new recipies for the cold weather moving in. We all love chicken and wild rice all the time. Thank you so much for the nutritinal values.

  5. YUM! Great recipe for this time of the year. WE love cooking soups during the fall and winter months. Great dinner to come home to when it is chilly out! I will be adding this recipe to my meal plan next week.

  6. One of my favorite comfort dishes! Since i became vegan i haven’t made any yet. I’m sure i can substitute the chicken for a vegan alternative.

  7. I’m surprised to see that there are no mushrooms in here! I’m also not a fan of creamy soups – because I can’t eat flour and cream. I’ve also just learned I’m allergic to mushrooms so this just happens to be the perfect soup for me!
