Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

We love creamy soups at our house.  We loved this creamy chicken and wild rice soup so much we made it for our whole family at a family reunion.  Now, several of us make it often.

4 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
2 cups cooked and cubed chicken (we love to use a rotisserie chicken!)
1 (4.5 oz) package quick cooking long grain and wild rice with seasoning packet. (I use Rice a Roni)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
2 cups heavy cream

In a large pot on medium heat, combine broth and water.  Bring to boiling and stir in rice (reserving the seasoning packet).  Cover and reduce heat.  Let cook 15 minutes.

In a saucepan on medium heat, melt butter.  Stir in seasoning packet, flour, salt, and pepper.  Whisk in cream, a little at a time, until smooth. Cook until thick.

Stir cream mixture into broth and rice.  Add chicken.  Cook over medium heat until heated through.
