Chicken Wild Rice Soup with Mushrooms

Dried thyme and tarragon add much flavor to this hearty soup. Every time I make it, it receives many compliments.

    Very good soup, I made it without the mushrooms as I don't like them. This would be good with a homemade crusty bread on a cold night.

    Delicious! I did leave out the mushrooms as DH does not care for them. Great for a cold day.

    I added a few things to make it my own and it is now a family fav. I would make it over and over.
