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.
