Chicken Wild Rice Soup


Chicken wild rice soup

Yesterday was such a cold and rainy day that I wanted something warm and satisfying for dinner. Surprisingly I had all the ingredients for this dish on hand! This creamy soup hit the spot not only for me but the whole fam too! Enjoy!

1 stick butter

1 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 large celery stalk, chopped

1 large carrot stick, chopped

1 c frozen corn

3/4 c whole wheat flour

6 c chicken broth

2 c cooked wild rice

2 c cooked diced chicken breasts

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp curry powder

1/2 tsp mustard powder

1/2 tsp dried parsley

2 c milk, half n half, or cream (whichever you prefer, I used milk this time, it’s what I had on hand)

Melt butter in large dutch oven. Add onion, garlic, celery and carrots. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Add corn. Corn for another minute. Add flour and mix well. Slowly pour in chicken broth, stirring until all is added and there is no clumps of flour. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer. Add rice, chicken and seasonings. Heat through and add milk. Simmer for 1-2 hours. Enjoy!!!

P.S. My daughter loved it so much she had 3 bowls for dinner and asked to have it for lunch today. So I packed it up for her to bring to school along with some crackers, cuties and a homemade chocolate chip cookie!
