Chicken Wild Rice Soup

Excellent soup! I made the soup with everything but the rice. I prepared two kinds of rice so each family member could choose. This kept my kidney kid eating what was healthy for her, as well as those of us who are trying to eat more whole grains and brown rice. We ladled soup over the rice in our soup bowl. It was delicious! The almonds were a great touch!

Is there anyone who knows of a recipe for chicken broth that is VERY low in salt, pottasium and phos ? I have a crock pot and could use it. I want to use the broth for cooking other foods or as in a sauce with a drop of flour.
