Chicken & Wild Rice Soup
64 oz chicken broth (2 boxes or 4 cans)
1 box Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice Blend (and about 1/2 the seasoning packet)
1 onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
3 Tbs. butter
3 Tbs. flour
2 cups milk
salt & pepper
about 2 cups cooked chicken
Bring the broth to a boil in a stockpot. Add the rice, onions and celery. Simmer for 35-40 minutes or until the rice is tender.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a pan. Stir in the flour, cooking for just a minute over medium heat. Gradually whisk in the milk. Cook over medium heat until it’s bubbly and thickened. Add the poultry seasoning, salt and pepper.
When the rice is cooked, stir the white sauce into the soup. Add the chicken. Adjust the seasonings and heat through.
