Easy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

This happens to be one of my favorite recipes. Soup is the original one-dish meal. Stock up on supplies on your next trip to the grocery store, and you'll have everything you need to take the chill off. Makes about 12 cups.

Source: I originally found this recipe a long time ago in a Southern Living Magazine (Carol Michael Hewitt, TX) and changed it a bit to suit my own taste. I have been doubling and freezing the recipe for years. I like to add more chicken broth to make it soupier. Everyone I serve it to enjoys it.
