Chicken and Wild Rice Soup


  • Author: 5boysbaker.com

Ingredients

Scale
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ onion (, chopped)
  • 2 carrots (, sliced)
  • 2 stalks of celery (, sliced)
  • ½ cup flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups cooked wild rice ((I use Uncle Bens))
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 2 cups shredded chicken ((rotisserie chicken works great))
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  1. Melt butter in large saucepan. Add onion, carrots and celery and saute for about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in 1/2 cup flour and cook until bubbly.
  3. Add chicken broth and boil until it thickens (just a couple minutes)
  4. Add wild rice, half and half, chicken, parsley, salt and pepper.
  5. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Notes

As this soup simmered it got thicker so I ended up adding more chicken broth to thin it down a little. You can leave it thick or add more broth or half-n-half, feel free to do whatever.
