Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

I had to share this recipe,
it is soooooo yummy!!
At our Primary workers appreciation dinner one of my counselors and really good friend made this soup.
Everyone LOVED it!
From start to finish it took me 4o minutes to make, so it really didn't take as long as I thought it would. Well worth the effort.
You have got to try this one :-)

Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
Amie's recipe

- 1 onion
- 2 carrots
- 3 celery sticks
- 1/2 c. butter
- 2/3 c. flour
- 6 c. water
- 1 Tbsp. McCormick chicken base or 4 bouillon cubes
- 2 pkg. Rice-A-Roni long grain and wild rice
- 2 to 4 chicken breasts
- 2 c. half & half
- 1 tsp. salt

**Chop vegetables and place in large soup pot. Melt butter and saute vegetables until tender. Add flour and stir until vegetables are coated. Slowly add water; stir vigorously until flour dissolves.
