Weekend Kitchen: Chicken soup season


By Julia Westhoff

I’m not sure if it’s all the partying from the Royals win, the cooler weather, or just your standard entry into cold and flu season, but it seems like everyone I know is getting sick. My husband, who is one of the healthiest people on the planet, has come down with a major bummer of a bug that he can’t seem to shake. My brother was sick for so long he started becoming seriously depressed. And of course the kids’ noses have started their traditional fall/winter run…

Luckily, I have been looking for an excuse to make my favorite chicken soup – one that every Minnesotan grows up on. That’s right, Wild Rice Chicken Soup. You will see it on every menu in Northern Minnesota, and for good reason – it’s delicious, filling, and nutritious. This one, made in a crock pot, is laughably easy and wonderfully comforting.

Stay well, my friends!
