  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 stalks chopped celery
  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 medium chopped yellow onion
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • 1 tsp salt (more or less to taste)
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper (more or less to taste)
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 5 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups whole milk (divided)
  • 1 cup heavy cream (divided)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 oz long grain & wild rice with seasoning packet
  • Drizzle olive oil in a deep dish pot or dutch oven. Place the pot on medium high heat. Add the celery, carrots, onions and garlic. Sauté the ingredients until everything starts to soften and brown a little bit. This should take about 10 minutes.
  • Add the chicken breast to the pan on top of the cooked veggies. Season the chicken with salt, pepper oregano and two bay leaves. Pour the broth 1 cup milk and 1/2 cup heavy cream into the pot, followed by the wild rice. Lastly, add the contents of the seasoning packet.
  • Give everything a quick mix. Bring the pot up to a boil over high heat, then lower it to a simmer. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes.
  • While the rice and chicken are cooking, make a thickening mixture. Combine flour, remaining milk and heavy cream using a whisk. Set aside.
  • Remove the bay leaves from the soup and discard. Next, remove the chicken from the soup and shred with a fork. Add the shredded chicken back into the soup, followed by the thickener, let simmer for 5 minutes until it thickens. Mix everything together. Serve hot and enjoy!
