Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Instructions
  1. In a large soup pot or stock pot, combine the chicken broth, water, and shredded chicken. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Stir in the rice, reserving the seasoning packet for later. Cover pot and remove from heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the salt, black pepper, and flour. In a skillet, melt 1 Tbsp of the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and carrots, saute just until onion is translucent and carrots are barely tender. Add to the rice mixture.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt the remaining 7 Tbsp of butter over medium heat. Stir in the contents of the rice seasoning packet and cook until the mixture is bubbly. Reduce the heat to low; slowly whisk in the flour mixture to form a roux. Add the half-and-half and whisk until it is fully incorporated and the mixture is smooth. Cook for 5 minutes, whisking frequently.
  4. Stir the cream mixture into the rice mixture. Cook soup over medium heat until it is heated through and has thickened, about 10 to 15 minutes.
