One Pot Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Fall is quickly approaching and I have an easy soup recipe to share with you that I have been making for many years! You can make this chicken and wild rice soup in one pot with very few ingredients! My family requests this soup all the time (even in the summer)!

The full recipe is below, but I always omit the celery because my family doesn't like it. I also add the optional mushrooms but chop them into very small pieces so my kids don't even know they are eating them! The mushrooms add so much flavor! Always salt and pepper before serving too. It just gives it that little something extra!

1/2 cup onion
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups half & half
2 cups cooked wild rice (I buy the steamable microwave kind)
2 cups cooked chicken (I always use rotisserie for convenience)
1 cup shredded carrots (I always buy a pre-shredded package)
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup fresh mushrooms
Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Saute onions in butter until soft. And flour and cook for several minutes.
2. Using a whisk, slowly add broth and half & half and stir. Cook over medium heat.
3. Add wild rice, chicken, carrots, celery, mushrooms and simmer until veggies are cooked through and soup is hot and bubbling.
As you can see this is such an easy one pot recipe with very few ingredients! I even use some shortcuts mentioned in the recipe. This feeds our family of four and we always have plenty of leftovers! Serve with crusty baguette! Enjoy!
