This is a wonderful soup the is easy to make and easy on the waist line. Maybe this will help with some New Years Resolutions.

Wild Thing Soup
2 Chicken Breasts, grilled and cut into chunks
3 T instant chicken bouillon
8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 cups carrots diced
1 Box Uncle Ben's Long Grain & Wild Rice
1 bunch green onions
2 T margarine
2 cups celery diced
Pepper to taste

8 servings

Bring about 8 cups of water to a boil. Add bouillon, carrots and celery. Cook vegetables until tender, about 15 minutes. Add rice (Do not use the seasoning packet n the Uncle Ben's Box) and simmer about 20 minutes. Saut mushrooms and onions in margarine. Add to broth. Cut chicken to bite-sized pieces and add to the broth. Heat back to a simmer and serve.

My notes: I add 2 Tbls chicken base to water and cook the chicken breast to make a rich stock

Sally, this sounds good. I have a question that may seem a bit daft...did your final note mean that you cook the two chicken breasts in the 8 cups of water (and not use grilled chicken)? Ann

RE: RECIPE: Wild Thing Soup

Ann, Sorry for the confusion. Yes, that's what I meant, you can either use left over chicken or cook the raw chicken in the water. It makes a richer soup if you start with the raw chicken, but it's really quick to make the soup with already cooked.
