Wild Rice Chicken Artichoke Soup

Last night was a very fun Halloween. Lots of friends and neighbors and some really darling costumes and scary costumes.

Since we were about to eat lots of sugary snacks I prepared a really good soup that was a perfect dinner for Halloween night. This recipe is adapted from my friend Eileen's recipe.

Wild Rice Chicken Artichoke Soup

1 lg. onion chopped
3 lg. carrots chopped
2 celery ribs chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 stick of butter or 1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup all purpose flour
8 cups chicken broth
3 cups cooked wild rice
1 cup cubed or shredded cooked chicken
1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper
1 can fat-free or lowfat evaporated milk
1 jar of marinated artichokes, drained
1/4 cup snipped chives

In a large pot saute the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic in butter or oil until tender. Stir in flour until blended. Gradually add broth. Stir in the cooked rice, chicken, artichokes, add salt and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in milk; cook 3-5 minutes longer. Add chives.
