Chicken Wild Rice Soup

Jeffree had class on Valentine's day until 7:30 p.m., so I offered to babysit for a family in the ward.  If I can't get my romance on, I might as well let someone else, right?

The mom already had dinner ready for her boys when I got there, but she pointed out some leftovers in the fridge for me to eat.  Oh my heavens!  It was sooooooooooo good!  Hands down the best chicken wild rice soup I've ever had.  I borrowed the recipe, typed it up, and thought I'd share it with you. 

Chicken (or turkey) Wild Rice Soup

1 Med onion diced
5 celery stalks diced
½ cup flour
1 pkg Uncle Bens Long Grain Wild Rice
2 cups diced cooked chicken or turkey
½ tsp salt
2 carrots diced
½ cup butter or margarine
6 cups of broth (chicken or turkey)
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
¼ tsp pepper

In large pot, saut√© onion, celery and carrots in butter until onion is transparent.  Reduce heat.  Blend in flour and cook until bubbly.  Gradually add broth, stirring constantly.  Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute.  Reduce heat, add wild rice (pre cooked), cream, meat, parsley, salt and pepper.  Simmer for 20 minutes.  Yield: 10-12 servings.

Try it.  You just might love it.
