DIRECTIONS

  • *I used Superior Touch Chicken Base and it was heavenly.
  • Cook wild rice according to package directions for 30 minutes; drain off liquid and rinse thoroughly.
  • Set partially cooked rice aside. In a large saucepan, combine the chicken and water.
  • Bring to boiling, reduce heat, and simmer for 40 minutes or until the chicken is tender.
  • Remove chicken from broth and let stand until cook enough to handle. Skim fat from broth.
  • Strain and reserve broth.
  • Remove chicken meat from bones.
  • Cut into bite-size pieces.
  • In the same saucepan, cook celery and onion in hot oil for 4-5 minutes; add mushrooms and cover and cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until everything is tender, stirring now and then.
  • Remove from heat. Return broth to the saucepan.
  • Add the partially cooked wild rice to the chicken broth mixture. Stir in the bouillon granules and white pepper.
  • Bring to boiling.
  • Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
  • In a large separate saucepan, melt the butter.
  • Stir in flour until it all clings together and is smooth.
  • Add the milk all at once and stir and cook until it's bubbly and thick.
  • Add some hot broth mixture to the white sauce mixture and stir until smooth; return all to the broth mixture. Stir in the chicken pieces and the Sherry.
  • Heat through.
