Homemade Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

3 years ago our family did a 3-month Candida Cleanse Diet, eliminating things like gluten, dairy, sugars, potatoes, most fruits, etc.. It’s hard to eat a diet consisting mainly of rice, meat, and vegetables … and even harder when you’re a few weeks into it and getting tired of the same few combinations!

I took advantage of those 3 months to come up with some new tasty recipes. And this is one of them! It turned out to be quite a favorite. ❤


Chicken & Wild Rice Soup


1 large Onion

2 cloves of Garlic

Olive Oil

3 cups Water

16 cups Chicken Broth

3 cups Wild Rice

3 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts

10 large Carrots, thinly sliced

2 cups cooked Black Beans, drained

Frozen Baby Broccoli Florets, thawed

Frozen cut Green Beans, thawed

Frozen Sweet Peas, thawed


In a large pot, sauté the onion and garlic in olive oil over med-high heat. The onion should be translucent when you are finished. Add the water, chicken broth, wild rice, and some salt to taste. Bring to a boil. Add the chicken breasts, and carrots, and bring back to a boil again. Lower the temperature and simmer until the chicken is no longer pink inside. Cut the chicken breasts into small bite size pieces and return to the pot. Stir in the black beans, broccoli, green beans, and peas. Simmer until the rice is cooked, and the carrots are soft.
