Nailed It!

Ok, last night I made the best tasting soup ever! Anthony said it's his favorite he's ever had, so I'm gonna go with a WIN on that one! Plus, it made a TON! I froze half of it for a rainy day and we ate a ton and have leftovers for lunch today! Yes!

Here is the original recipe I went from. I changed a few things, so I will post my recipe below... Enjoy (and you will!)!

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup


7 C chicken broth (7 is the number because that's all I had! It calls for 9- oops!)
2 C water
1/2 C diced onion
1 C diced carrots
1 C diced celery
3 C cooked wild rice
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1/3 C flour (I used gluten free)
2 C half and half (I used about 1 1/2 C fat free half and half and 1/2 C 1% milk and it was great)
salt/pepper/garlic powder to taste
Rotisserie chicken shredded (I only used 1 1/2 breasts)

Combine broth and water and bring to boil. Add onion, celery, and carrots and reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Add rice and cook for 5 more minutes. In a small bowl, stir together flour and 1 cup water with garlic, salt, pepper, and any other additional seasonings you might like. Stir until smooth, then slowly add to big pot- stirring constantly. Bring to a boil for about a minute. Slowly add half and half, stirring constantly. Add chicken. Mix well. Heat through and serve.

**I made this while my kids were napping and let it sit and absorb all the flavors until dinner time. I just turned the stove to simmer about thirty minutes before dinner and it was delicious (much better that way then when I tasted it right after combining everything).

Here is my very non-professional, putting it into freezer container, picture. I realized after we served it that I needed to share the recipe on the blog and thought any picture is better than no picture. Delicious y'all!

Printing this out to make next week!!!! Nick seems to think soup does not qualify as a meal but I showed him the picture and told him Anthony loved it so he's willing to try it =)
