Diet Breaking Recipe Sunday 10

4 years ago

*I try to eat healthy through out the week, but every Sunday my boyfriend and I consider it to be our cheat day. We dont over indulge on sweets and unhealthy things, but I do make us an amazing dinner that I know will satisfy us for the entire week. Im always searching blogs, pinterest, and cooking websites. I thought I would post 10 recipes on Sundays that Im considering on cooking for dinner and the most liked would be cooked! Haha. Just thought it would be fun and keep my boyfriend and me from arguing about which one would be better! :)

Chicken Bacon Wild Rice Soup

3 (10 3/4 oz) cans condensed chicken broth
2 cups water
1/2 cup uncooked wild rice, rinsed
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup margarine or butter
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups half and half
1 1/2 cup cubed or shredded cooked chicken or turkey
8 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
1 tablespoon chopped pimiento
2-3 tablespoons dry sherry, if desired


1.In a large saucepan, combine chicken broth and water. Add wild rice and onions. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 30-45 minutes (or until rice is tender). Once the rice is cooked, there will be some additional broth do not drain.
2.In a medium saucepan, melt margarine, stir in flour, salt, seasoning, and pepper. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly.
3.Gradually stir in half and half with the butter/flour mixture and cook until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Add this creamy mixture back into the saucepan with the rice/broth. Add remaining ingredients (chicken, bacon, pimiento, and sherry). Heat on low, stirring every once in a while, for at least a half an hour. Do not boil. The mixture will look thin, but the longer you heat the soup, the more the flavors merry and the more it will thicken. This soup is best served after gently heating for an extended period of time (even a few hours) or the next day! For extra flavor, add more poultry seasoning and/or bacon.
