I’ll be honest, I’m not much of a soup eater. It may be the same reason I don’t really like hot coffee. I have however committed to live off my pantry and freezer contents for the month. If you want the whole story, check out my post “Living On a Pantry, a Freezer and Prayer.” This week I started with a package of wild rice I had purchased several months ago on clearance at Target and tried to come up with a meal that would use basic ingredients but taste hearty and delicious. According to my husband’s review, I did it! Here’s how I made this easy wild rice chicken stew.
- 1 Cup Wild Rice
- 6 Frozen Chicken Tenderloins (You could use canned chicken as well).
- 2 Cups of Chicken Broth
- 1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
- 1/2 Cup Water or Milk
- Frozen Onions
- Optional Garnish: Cheese or Sour Cream
Step 1: I cooked the rice following the directions on the package using chicken broth instead of water.
Step 2: In a separate pot cooked the chicken until thoroughly done.
Step 3: Saute frozen onions in small pan on stove.
Step 4: Once chicken is thoroughly cooked, shred with a fork.
Step 5: Combine the rice, onions and chicken.
Step 6: Add 1 can of cream of chicken soup to the chicken, rice and onion mixture.
Step 7: Add 1/2 cup of water or milk and stir. Heat this combination on Medium-Low on the stove for about 10-15 minutes until thoroughly heated.
Step 8: You can garnish this dish with a sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese or sour cream.
