Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

I have been craving this soup for weeks since I brought home my Zaycon Foods Chicken Breasts (they went out of business). It’s so rich and creamy I know you’ll love it too. It makes a huge batch but I put it in the refrigerator and eat it for lunch every day afterward. When it gets cold it is really thick so make sure you heat it up good for your leftovers.Chicken wild rice soup

This is one of my favorite creamy soups. It’s the perfect soup to fill you up. It’s the first creamy based soup that I’ve made. The roux is what makes the soup. So make sure you do it right in anything you make.
