Chicken Noodle and Wild Rice Soup

While looking for a quick and easy dinner for this evening I came across this recipe!! Today has been overcast and it seemed like the perfect day to make some soup. This soup comes out pretty thick so I would probably refer to it more as “glop” but it turned out delicious!! I only modified it a bit by shredding  a rotisserie chicken from the deli rather than cooking chicken breasts (for times sake tonight), adding in a can of drained corn, and adding in a few other seasonings of choice such as garlic powder!! Here’s the recipe…Enjoy!! 🙂
