Cream of Wild Rice Soup

Tender cubes of chicken, fresh vegetables, and wild rice make this soup hearty enough for a meal.

In a large saucepan, saute 1 large chopped onion, 1 large shredded carrot, and one large chopped celery rib
In 1/4 cup butter until tender.

Stir in 1/2 cup flour until blended. Gradually stir in 8 cups
chicken broth.

Stir in 2 cups wild rice ( Uncle Ben's wild rice mix does well)

Stir in one cup COOKED cubed chicken, 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

Bring to a boil over medium heat: cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in 1 cup evaporated milk, cook 3 minutes longer. Garnish with Chives.
