Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

A neighbor brought this soup to me a while ago and it has quickly become a family favorite. In fact I made it last night so I could post a picture - unfortunately it was eaten before I got my camera out. I guess that isn't really a bad thing - family loving your dinner so much they eat it all. That doesn't happen around our house very often - very picky kids!!

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
2 boxes Uncle Bens original Long Grain and Wild Rice
cook this following directions on box except use only 3 cups water total and shorten time to about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile:
In pot saute -
2 T butter
4 carrots sliced
4 celery stalks chopped
1 onion diced
(cook until onions are translucent)
now add:
6 cups chicken stock ( this is more rich than chicken broth)
2-3 chicken breast cooked and cubed
(I bottled chicken and just use one bottle shredding the chicken as I add it - this is the easiest way to make this soup)
cooked Rice with any remaining liquid
1 pint whipping cream - you didn't think it was all going to be good for you did you?
I sometimes end up adding more chicken stock because the rice takes alot of the liquid - just do what you like.
Simmer and serve. YUM!!!
Hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
