Tried another new recipe....

So with the weather being colder, rainier and typical crappy weather in Ohio in late October/ early November I have been looking for new soup/stew recipes to try that would be easy for those crazy busy nights. Well last week, I stumbled across a recipe for "Copycat Panera Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice Soup" from Mavis Butterfield's One Hundred Dollars A Month blog. It looked delicious (even though I have never had Panera soup and was also something that I thought Bill and the kids might even like. The reviews on the soup were all very positive so I thought I would give it a try. I originally had planned to make it Sunday night for dinner, but my plans for the day had changed and so it got bumped to Monday night. 

My verdict:: the soup is DELICIOUS!!!! Creamy, yummy and not overpowering in any of the flavors. SO GOOD!!! And everyone in my family loved it! (Bill even requested that I put the leftover soup in his luch for work.) (It should be noted that up until recently my kids have complained on nights that I have tried making soups for dinner...) I served it with warmed up "snowflake" rolls that I had bought on clearance from Kroger. So good! 

So if you are looking for a creamy, hearty, yummy soup perfect for fall and winter make sure you check out Mavis' recipe for "Copycat Panera Cream of Chicken and Wildrice Soup." You won't be disappointed. 


  1. I saw Mavis' recipe and thought it sounded just like the soup I eat from Publix which is delicious. Your pot of soup looks just like their pot of soup.

  2. The soup looks delicious and I have had the Panaera soup. I may have to try it and see if my hubs likes it.
