Other recipes I’ve seen that claim to duplicate the fabulous flavor of this popular soup do not make good clones, yet the long grain and wild rice mix that many of these recipes call for is a great way to get the exact amount of rice you need in a perfect blend. Just be sure not to use the flavor packet that comes with those rice kits, or you won’t get a good clone of the Panera original. Toss out that blend (or you can use it elsewhere; see Tidbits) and use the recipe below to make a better flavoring for your copycat Panera Bread Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice Soup.

Thanks to Panera Bread's policy of completely transparent ingredients, I discovered a surprising ingredient or two (wow, cabbage!), and was able to craft the best clone you’ll find for this top secret signature soup.

This is the first recipe I've tried from TopSecretRecipes and WOW, what a great soup and spot on to the Panera Bread version! My husband and I love this soup and get it often from Panera. Too expensive to buy for a larger group so I tried this version and it really is fantastic. Hubby agreed that it's a perfect match to the original. I love the ease of the recipe and directions and look forward to making another batch. Just down right yummy!
