Ingredients

    3 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Thighs Cooked
    2 cups Uncle Ben's Long Grain & Wild Rice
    1 cup chopped carrot
    2 large celery stalks chopped
    8 cups Chicken broth
    1 medium onion chopped
    1/4 cup unsalted butter
    1/2 cup flour
    1 cup fat free evaporated milk
    Parsley, 2 tbsp
    Garlic, 2 cloves (optional)
    Basil, 2 tbsp
    Celery seed, 1 tsp
    Thyme, ground, 2 tsp
    Pepper, black, 1/2 tbsp
    Salt, 2 tsp

Directions

Cook wild rice according to directions and cook chicken according to your preference. Meanwhile, saute Onion, Garlic, Celery & Carrot in 1/4 cup butter until soft. Add 1/2 cup flour and mix well. Slowly add chicken stock. Add cooked wild rice and cooked chicken. Stir and boil for approximately 2 minutes. Add all seasonings* and milk. Boil additional 5 minutes** on LOW HEAT stirring occasionally until thickened.

Serves 10. (1 cup per person serving size)

*Feel free to adjust herbs and seasonings to your liking. The original recipe didn't call for any of those herbs, I just added them and made adjustments to my own preference.

** You don't have to cook this soup for a long time as the ingredients are pre-cooked but I like to slowly simmer my soups to ensure proper flavor infusion.

  • Holy smokes, this is yummy. I swapped leftover chicken breast for the thighs, and used a little less salt, but it was delicious, easy and came together in no time. Great for a cold winter day! Thanks for sharing. - 11/14/13

  • I cooked the chicken separate, sauteed the chopped onion, but cooked the carrots, chopped chicken, celery, rice, and seasonings in the broth until rice was cooked and carrots were tender. I also used homemade broth to reduce the sodium. I added the dairy and peas in the end. YUMMO! - 12/5/11
