Another New Recipe

sooo with The Husband working as much as he has been, I have been morphing into a real Suzie-Homemaker! I'm working very hard to come up with new recipes. I am SO tired of eating the same stuff all. the. TIME! I am constantly looking for different things to cook - allrecipes.com is my new best friend. of course you can always find some pretty yummy ideas on Pinterest - but I reserve my pinterest recipe finding for drinks and desserts =)

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

·   2 cups chicken broth
·  1 cup water
·  1 cooked, boneless chicken breast halves, shredded
   1/2 (4.5 ounce) package quick cooking long grain and wild rice with seasoning packet
·  1/4 teaspoon salt
   1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
·  1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
   1/4 cup butter

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine broth, water and chicken. Bring just to boiling, then stir in rice, reserving seasoning packet. Cover and remove from heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper and flour. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in contents of seasoning packet until mixture is bubbly. Reduce heat to low, then stir in flour mixture by tablespoons, to form a roux. Whisk in cream, a little at a time, until fully incorporated and smooth. Cook until thickened, 5 minutes.
  3. Stir cream mixture into broth and rice. Cook over medium heat until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes.
