    HokiesMom's Note:

    I could not find exactly what I was looking for so I created this recipe from combining a couple of others. My family loves this served with a really crusty bread. Updated Jan 2013 - I am still tweaking and think I have the perfect soup now. I've made all the adjustments below in the recipe. For reheating the soup you may need to add a couple of tablespoons of milk or half & half to the soup and stir before heating to help with the thickness.

    2. 2
      Add broth and chicken to the pot and increase heat to bring the mixture just to boiling then stir in rice but NOT the seasoning packet - keep that aside. Cover and reduce heat to low and continue to cook and stir occasionally.

      In a measure cup, combine pepper and flour.
    4. 4
      In a medium sized saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the contents of the seasoning packet until mixture is bubbly. Reduce heat to low, then stir in flour mixture to form a roux. Whisk constantly.
    5. 5
      Whisk in the half and half and the milk a little at a time until fully incorporated and smooth and continue cooking and whisking for 5 minutes until mixture is thickened.
    6. 6
      Stir cream mixture into broth and rice. Cover and cook over a medium low heat until heated through and broth is thickened, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    7. 7
