Creamy Chicken Soup with Groats and Wild Rice

Fall is a super busy time for us here on the Gluten-Free Prairie. The Bakery is hopping as we prepare for the Resort Season. And of course, we’re gearing up for Winter. We’ve already had 20 inches of snow and more is on the way. The days are shorter and, like all of us, my challenge is how to fit it all in. And the horses help me keep my sanity when things get crazy.

Oh MY! This delicious hearty soup comes together very quickly and (like so many things…) gets better with age.
