Chicken, Mushroom, and Wild Rice Soup
2 boxes Rice a Roni Wild rice mix
10 cups of chicken broth, divided
3 Tbs. butter
1 cup baby Bella mushrooms, sliced (I use the whole carton)
1 cup chopped sweet onion
1 cup chopped celery (about 3 stalks)
½ cup butter
½ cup flour
½ cup half and half
2 cups cooked, shredded chicken breast (1 breast is plenty)
1. Bring rice, 4 cups chicken broth, and one seasoning packet from rice mix to a boil in a sauce pan over medium-high heat. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer 20 minutes
2. Meanwhile, melt 3 Tbs. butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion, and celery. Cook, stirring often 10-12 minutes or until tender.
3. Melt ½ cup butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat; whisk in flour and cook whisking constantly until thickened and bubbly. Gradually whisk in 6 cups chicken broth and cook, stirring often, 8-10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Whisk in half and half. Stir in mushroom mixture, chicken, and rice. Cook 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until heated through. Do not boil!
Delicious with fresh baked bread for dipping
