CREAMY CHICKEN WILD RICE SOUP

Creamy Chicken Wild Rice Soup is a simple broth based soup recipe full of chicken, wild rice, vegetables and cream. This hearty and delicious soup is a family favorite! 
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 carrots chopped small
  • 2 celery stalks diced small
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 cup flour-salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup diced/shredded chicken
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 3 cups cooked wild rice about 1 cup uncooked

Instructions

  • Start cooking the rice before you begin working on the rest of the soup.
  • Chop up carrots, onions and celery.
  • In a medium saucepan, saute carrots, celery and onion in butter over medium heat until tender.  Add flour and mix.
  • Add broth, salt and pepper (I just put a pinch of each in - you probably don't even really need salt). ¬†Bring to a boil and then turn heat down to low.
  • Add chicken and half and half and reheat, but don't boil again. ¬†Add rice right before serving (if you put it in a long time before serving, the rice will keep cooking and get mushy).
