Curl up with a big bowl of this comforting Gluten-Free Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup on a cold winter night.
When it is too cold to go outside, serve this Gluten Free Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup. It is a great way to use leftover chicken and rice, and in this version there are no canned soups, which means no artificial flavors or preservatives or chemicals whose names we can’t pronounce.
To make this gluten free be sure that your ingredients are gluten free including gluten free flour, chicken broth, and poultry seasoning. I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking flour, Pacific Foods Organic Low Sodium Chicken Broth, and McCormick poultry seasoning. However, I am a newbie to eating gluten-free and I recommend that you research and try the brands that work best for you.
Even if you are not looking for a gluten free recipe you will love this will love this soup. What is not to love with the creamy, savory, chicken-y flavor.
Serve it with crusty french bread or cornbread and you have a meal.
