Chicken and Ham Wild Rice Soup

Chicken and Ham Wild Rice Soup



  • Melt butter in a 6 quart pot over medium-high heat.
  • Add celery, carrots, and onions. Saute until tender crisp.
  • Stir in flour and mixture will become lumpy.
  • Add chicken broth and milk. Stir until the lumps are gone.
  • Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until it starts to thicken.
  • Add chicken, ham and cooked wild rice.
  • Continue heating, stirring often as the soup thickens, until it starts to boil and the chicken, ham and wild rice are hot.
  • Taste to see if you need to add salt and more pepper. (I added 1 tsp of salt and another 1/2 tsp of pepper.)
