Chicken & Wild Rice Soup


A deliciously savory homemade chicken & wild rice soup with lots of flavorful veggies!

8 Tbsp. butter
1 medium yellow sweet onion, diced
1 1/2 Tbsp. jarred diced garlic
1/2 lb. fresh raw baby carrots, sliced
1/2 lb. fresh raw celery, ribs split & sliced
1 tsp. parsley
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. celery salt
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp. rosemary, crushed
1 tsp. thyme, crushed
2 bay leaves
1 cup dry white wine
80 oz. (2 1/2 quarts) reduced sodium chicken broth
2 boxes (6 oz. each) Uncle Ben's Original Recipe Long Grain & Wild Rice
8 oz. fresh raw sliced mushrooms, chopped
1 rotisserie cooked whole chicken, deboned & diced
1 (10.5 oz.) can cream of chicken
Slice up the fresh, raw onion, carrots, celery & mushrooms, keeping mushrooms seperate. Debone rotisserie cooked whole chicken & dice the meat. In a large stock pot over medium-high heat, melt butter. When bubbling, add the onion, garlic, carrots, & celery. Also add in the parsley, ground ginger, celery salt, Italian seasoning, along with the crushed thyme & crushed rosemary. **TIP: I crush these 2 herbs by placing them inside a coffee filter folded in two and press hard with the back of a metal spoon, working all the herbs.** Stir all these veggies, seasonings & herbs into the butter, & saute for 4 - 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the reduced sodium chicken broth, white wine, & bay leaves. Add in both boxes of Uncle Ben's Original Recipe Long Grain & Wild Rice, But ONLY 1 of the packets of rice seasoning! (The instant rice version will not work in this recipe; & if you use both of the seasoning packets, it will be too salty) Stir well & bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover & simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in the diced fresh mushrooms & diced, cooked chicken. Stir to combine. Replace lid & continue to simmer an additional 15 minutes. Add in the cream of chicken, blending well. Remove from heat, fish out the bay leaves (discard them) & serve immediately. This soup can be frozen.
