Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 1 medium onion finely diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 carrot finely diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 celery rib finely diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Morton Nature’s Season seasoning blend
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons chicken base
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet seasoning
  • 2 cups cooked chicken diced or shredded
  • 2 cups cooked wild rice
  • 2 cups half and half or heavy cream
  • minced fresh parsley for garnish, optional

Instructions

  • In a Dutch oven or stock pot, melt butter over medium-high heat until foaming. Add mushrooms, onion, carrots, celery, Morton's Nature Seasoning, and poultry seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables have softened and released most of their liquid, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Stir in flour and cook until heated through, about 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in one cup of broth until no lumps of flour remain.
  • Stir in remaining broth, chicken base, Kitchen Bouquet seasoning, chicken, and cooked wild rice. Heat until barely simmering, about 180 degrees.
  • Stir in half and half and return to 180 degrees (do not boil). Season to taste with salt and pepper (I like 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper) and garnish with fresh parsley. Or, transfer to a slow cooker and keep warm.
