Here ya go.... I've never really shared a recipe with other than family and friends, I'm always afraid someone won't like it. That's why I never became a chef like I wanted to..... I can't take critisizm too well. If you don't like it just don't tell me please!!!!!
Maybe I should make this a new thread, but if they want it that way it will go that way.
Here goes nuthin!!!
Suzi's Minnesota Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice Soup
1/2 lb bacon, chopped
1 1/2 cup diced carrot
1 1/2 cup diced celery
1 1/2 cup chopped onion
4 cloves minced garlic (or to taste, as is everything)
3-4 cups diced cooked chicken
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
8 cups chicken broth
3-4 cups cooked wild rice (I make rice 1 cup rice, 3 cups water, use it all)
2 cups 1/2 and 1/2
salt and pepper to taste
Will need a large soup pot, dutch oven is too small.
Render bacon til crisp, remove from pot, leave drippings.
Cook carrot, celey, onion til just soft, add garlic, cook 1-2 more min.
Add butter and melt, add flour and cook 2-3 min.
Add broth, bacon and chicken, simmer 5 min.
Add cream and rice, heat thru, add salt and pepper to taste.
