Chicken and Wild Rice Soup with Leeks

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup with Leeks

I wanted a warm, silky soup that contained leeks but different than the standard leek soup recipes I kept seeing. So with the help of wild rice and rotisserie chicken, I came up with a delicious soup that can be changed up to a cook's preferences.

  1. Step 1

    Heat olive oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add leeks, onion, and garlic. Saute until fragrant, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  2. Step 2

    Add chicken bouillon to hot water to dissolve. Add to the onion-leek mixture. Add rice and poultry seasoning. Stir well, cover, and reduce heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes.
  3. Step 3

    Add chicken, carrots, and bell pepper to the soup. Cover and continue simmering until vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. Uncover and add heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with thyme.
