Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

Hearty Chicken Rice Soup Stew Recipe by Ash's In The Kitchen

I woke up completely exhausted and miserable. I’m so glad I had a jar of turkey bone broth in the freezer that I could defrost and use to make some soup. This makes about 6 servings, so this is definitely lunch and dinner. It’s got another 30 minutes or so to go before I can add the rice and I can’t wait. Uuuugh!
