Introduction

This soup is sooooooo good you won't believe the calorie counts!! I got this recipe from a co-worker, but changed the ingredients a bit (originally called for 2 cups of heavy cream-yikes!) I don't think that you will miss any of it in this version. My kids even ate it! This soup is sooooooo good you won't believe the calorie counts!!

Ingredients

    4 cups chicken broth
    2 cups water
    8 oz chicken breasts cooked and chopped (I used about three quarters of a package of chicken tenderloins)
    1 box quick cooking long grain and wild rice with seasoning (Uncle Ben Original)
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/2 cup flour
    1/4 cup butter
    1 cup low fat half and half
    1 cup skim milk

Directions

Cook chicken breast via oven or boil until cooked….chop into bite size pieces.
In large pot over medium heat combine broth, water, and cooked chicken. Bring just to boiling, then stir in rice, reserving seasoning packet. Cover and continue to let cook on medium while performing next steps.
In small bowl combine salt, pepper and flour. In 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 a tablespoon at a time, to form a roux. Whisk in cream a little at a time until fully incorporated and smooth. Cook until thickened, about 5 minutes.
Stir cream mixture into broth and rice. Cook over medium heat until heated through….approximately 30 minutes for rice to fully cook.
** Makes 10 one cup servings!

  • This soup lives up to its title! I have made it twice and have loved it each time! I do wish Uncle Ben would reduce the sodium in the "packet"--I did use reduced sodium broth and unsalted butter. I highly recommend this soup! - 2/3/13

  • Outstanding! To help with sodium, I used reduced-sodium chicken broth. Definitely going to be a delicious, winter "comfort food". - 10/19/12
