World’s Best Chicken Wild Rice Soup

I received this favorite recipe many years ago from a co-worker. It is absolutely the best chicken wild rice soup I have eaten. My family loves it and has passed it on to many of their friends. The recipe calls for a pound of bacon, I often make it without bacon and think it is just as good. Some family members disagree with me on that!


  • 2-3 cups chicken, cooked
  • 4 cups wild rice, cooked
  • 1 lb well cooked and drained bacon
  • 1 onion, sauteed in butter
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup (or cream of chicken)
  • 1 can cream of potato soup
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 1 large jar old english cheese (or 2 small jars)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 8 oz carton 1/2 & 1/2
  • 1 can french style green beans, drained
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Put all ingredients in crock pot for 6 to 8 hours. Also you can simmer for a couple of hours on stovetop.
