Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook wild rice until tender, 35 to 60 minutes, depending on how fresh it is and whether you like it soft or chewy. Drain.
Heat oil in a soup pot over medium-high heat. Cook onions, celery, carrots, garlic, herbs and spices until soft, about 5 minutes. Add stock and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 hour. Stir in cooked rice, cooked chicken and peas. Heat through and adjust seasonings.
