Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

This is my favorite soup. It's healthy, filling, and quite elegant for being a soup. Don't be afraid to serve this for entertaining. Also, Costco's rotisserie chicken tastes great in this soup!

1 (6-oz) Long Grain and Wild Rice Mix (Uncle Ben's or Rice a Roni)
1 T. Olive Oil
1 1/2 c. red onion, chopped
1 c. celery, chopped
1 c. carrot, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pkg. mushrooms, quartered
1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. tarragon
1/4 tsp. thyme
2 c. water
2 T. cooking sherry (or red wine vinegar)
2 (15-oz) cans chicken broth
1 (12-oz) can evaporated milk
3 c. chicken, cooked & shredded

Prepare rice according to package direction; set aside. Sauté onion, celery, carrot, garlic, and mushrooms in olive oil for 6 minutes. Add flour, tarragon, and thyme, cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add water, sherry, broth, and milk. Return to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in cooked rice and chicken. Cook until heated through.

You made this soup for us after Susan was born! So delicious. It went so well with that bread--I know it's in the family cookbook but you should post the recipe on here for others. I'm liking this food blog of yours. YUM!
