Ingredients


    4 cups chicken broth

    3 cups water

    3 boneless chicken breast halves

    1 (4.5 ounce) package long grain and wild rice with seasoning packet

    1 10 oz. bag frozen veggies

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

    3/4 cup all-purpose flour

    1/2 cup butter

    2 cups half and half cream

Directions

1.In a large pot over high heat, add 8 cups of water and boil your chicken. After boiling for 2 hours turn off the heat and let it cool so you can shred the chicken. Add water and shredded chicken back to the broth. Bring just to boiling, then stir in rice and frozen veggies, reserving seasoning packet. Cover and remove from heat.
2.In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper and flour. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in contents of seasoning packet until mixture is bubbly. Reduce heat to low, then stir in flour mixture by tablespoons, to form a roux. Whisk in cream, a little at a time, until fully incorporated and smooth. Cook until thickened, 5 minutes.
3.Stir cream mixture into broth and rice. Cook over medium heat until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes.
Season to taste with Seasoned Salt (optional)
