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!
- 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
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).
