Muir Glen Organic chicken and wild rice soup is one of the best soups when you have the flu or a cold.
After traveling by airplane recently, I woke up the next morning with a sore throat, aching body and terrible cough. I stocked up on a few Muir Glen organic soups. The chicken and wild rice has chicken which is raised with no added hormones or antibotics.
The soup contains little pieces of diced carrots, celery, chunks of white meat chicken and a lot of wild rice.
The wild rice is nice because it give the soup some substance. I prefer rice when I’m sick with a cold or the flu because rice is gluten free.
I loved the smell of rosemary in the soup, even though my sense of smell was somewhat compromised by the flu.
The soup pairs well with Mary’s Gone Crackers, Wheat Thins Crackers Tuscan Herb or Town House Flatbread Crisps Italian Herb.

For taste and nutrition, I give the Muir Glen Organic chicken and wild rice soup 4.5 out of 5 stars. Their chicken and rice soup recipe doesn’t taste like a gourmet dinner, but the hot soup did make me feel better.
I was excited and curious for my review of the Bistro MD chicken breast with brown and wild rice dinner. I have heard of “Ratatouille” but have never tried it. I discovered a new healthy dish in the vegetable Ratatouille that paired nicely with a grilled and oven roasted chicken breast.
I loved the way Bistro MD chefs stuffed the chicken with brown and wild rice and topped it with a roasted chicken demi-glace.
I’m always pleased with the quality of the doctor designed gourmet diet meal delivery service. The Bistro MD taste is consistenly good.
The Ratatouille on the side of the chicken was made with tomatoes, eggplant which is my favorite as well as zucchini, yellow summer squash, green peppers, red peppers and seasoning including basil, garlic, onion and garlic powders and black pepper.
The portion size of the chicken was generous, which explains why the dish had 35 grams of protein.
When dieting, it’s always wise to combine protein with fiber. The Bistro MD chicken with ratatouille has 7 grams of fiber, which keeps you full.
Although I’m at a healthy weight, I have been enjoying my Bistro MD food reviews simply because their food is tasty and nutritious. It’s also extremely convenient when you are busy with work and a family.
