Description

Indulge in a warm and comforting bowl of this Savory Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Elixir. This dish combines tender chunks of chicken, aromatic wild rice, and a rich, creamy broth that’s perfect for chilly evenings or whenever you crave a touch of home-cooked goodness.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a sizable pot, place the shredded chicken, chicken broth, and water, and set it to warm over a medium flame. Allow the mixture to reach a rolling boil, then add the uncooked wild rice, setting aside the accompanying seasoning for later use. Secure the lid on the pot and take it off the heat.
  2. In a separate, small dish, whisk together the all-purpose flour with a pinch of salt and pepper to blend.
  3. Next, take a medium-sized saucepan and melt the butter over a medium setting. Sprinkle in the reserved seasoning from the rice packet and continue to stir until the mixture starts to sizzle. Turn down the heat to a gentle simmer before gradually incorporating the seasoned flour mix, spoon by spoon, into the buttery base, stirring constantly to create a smooth roux.
  4. Gradually pour in the heavy cream to the roux, whisking continuously to ensure a lump-free and velvety texture. Allow the mixture to simmer gently until it thickens, which should take around 5 minutes.
  5. Finally, combine the thickened cream sauce with the broth and rice mixture. Place the pot back on a medium burner and let the soup warm through until it reaches your preferred consistency, stirring occasionally, for about 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Ladle the hot soup into bowls to serve and savor the creamy delight.

Notes

  • Feel free to adjust the seasoning according to your taste preferences. For a lighter version, substitute the heavy cream with half-and-half or whole milk.
