This soup is for real -- creamy, earthy, chickeny and filling. Get your simmer on!

Ingredients

1
carton (32 oz) Progresso™ chicken stock
1
cup uncooked wild rice
3/4
teaspoon salt
2
tablespoons butter
2
cups finely diced onion
1
medium carrot, peeled and finely diced (1/2 cup)
1
stalk celery, finely diced (1/3 cup)
1/2
lb fresh mushrooms, finely diced
2
tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
1/4
cup all-purpose flour
2
cups water
2
cups chopped deli rotisserie chicken
1
cup heavy whipping cream

Directions

  • 1 In 4-quart saucepan, heat stock, wild rice and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt to boiling over high heat. Stir; cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook about 45 minutes, without lifting cover, until rice is tender but still firm.
  • 2 Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot, celery and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables begin to brown. Add mushrooms; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until mushrooms brown and soften. Add thyme and flour. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until flour begins to brown and smells nutty. Add water; simmer 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • 3 Stir vegetable mixture into wild rice mixture. Stir in chicken and cream; heat to a simmer over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes to heat through and combine flavors. Divide among 6 bowls, and top with more fresh thyme, if desired.
Tips  

Make sure those mushrooms really start to brown before adding the flour. Color equals flavor.

Prefer pork instead of chicken? Ham makes a great substitute in this soup.
