It has been really cold lately, here in Washington. All this cold weather makes me want to crave a hot bowl of a cream soup. Here is a new recipe I discovered today. It's called Creamy Chicken and Rice soup. It's a copycat recipe from Panera Bread Restaurant. I haven't tried it at the restaurant yet, but I will try it next time I go there, because it is sooooo Delicious!!! Perfect soup for a cold day!!!
6 cups chicken broth
2 boneless chicken breast halves (fried and cubed)
1/2 cup of rice
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup butter (12 tbsp. or a stick and a half)
1 cup carrot, diced
1 cup celery, diced
1 cup onion, diced
3 cups light cream (I used 1 cup of heavy whipping cream mixed with 2 cups of water)
Mrs. Dash seasoning (optional)
salt to taste
Ham for topping
