This is one of our family favorites. My son always reminds wursts it when he comes home for a visit.
Skipped the canned soup and wine and added heavy cream instead.
I am from Minnesota, and I continue coming back to this recipe again and again. It is perfect as written but allows you to adjust if you don't have everything on hand. We often add more mushrooms and skip the chicken altogether. This is the best recipe!
Question: if I leave out the chopped mushrooms, should I use 2 cans of cream of mushroom?
Made a couple of improvisions and It was awesome!. I did cut rice quantity in half and think actually 1 cup would be sufficient. Didn't have celery but had celery salt, so I used the bottom heart of romaine lettuce and doused it with celery salt. Preferred chopped carrots, so chopped carrots instead. I didn't use wine in the recipe but used additional broth.
I made this during Corona virus shut down so I made adjustments to what I had. I used cream of bacon soup instead of the cream of mushroom as I couldn't find any at the store and I was out, I halved the recipe and didn't have the dried parsley but I did everything else pretty much as the recipe called for. I used canned wild rice because I always have that on hand. It was delicious. My husband loved it and told me he'd be glad to have that again, so It will go into my soup collection but I think I'll stick with the cream of bacon soup because we really liked the subtle depth it gave the soup.
I substituted cream of chicken because I bought the wrong thing and skipped the wine. The other ingredients came from a leftover veggie platter and a chicken and rice dinner. It was DELICIOUS.
Great recipe and added to favorites. I left out wine and substituted canned chicken. Tasted delicious!
This is a wonderful soup.. I highly recommend it! I made an easy chicken stock from a rotisserie chicken and then followed the rest of the instructions. Didn't have the wine so I skipped it. This turned out delicious!!
This soup is quite good, but time consuming for preparation. I followed the recipe to a "T"..with the exception of slicing the carrots. I gave it a 4 star rating as the amount of flour/butter did not thicken the soup. 1/3 cup flour 6 T butter would probably be much better. Unfortunately the soup was watery
