Dream Dinners: Hearty Chicken and Wild Rice Soup with Breadsticks

Happy Sugar Crash Day!  Yesterday was a little bit cold and dreary here in Central Texas, so I was super glad that I had pulled my bag of Hearty Chicken and Wild Rice Soup out of the freezer for dinner.  We went on a quick walk in the rain before dinner and then we really wanted some soup.  I started by preheating the oven to 400 for the breadsticks.  Meanwhile, I heated up some olive oil in a large pot on the stovetop.  To the pot, I added the chicken, rice and veggies, stirring and cooking about 7 minutes.  Next, I added in some water and the soup base bag.  I brought it to a boil, reduced heat to low, covered and simmered about 30 minutes.  When the soup was almost done, I baked the bread sticks for about 6 minutes until they were golden.  This was an excellent dinner choice. The soup was creamy and full of delicious chicken, veggies and rice.  It definitely reminded me a bit of the chicken and wild rice soup at Bread Co(Panera).  I have a feeling this will be a leftover that we fight over in the future.
