Winter Food

September 29, 2009 at 1:08 am Leave a comment

The weather is officially blech today, so I started thinking about fixing some ‘winter food’ for dinner this week…things I haven’t made since last winter.

First up this week: Chicken & Wild Rice Chowder

2 C. sliced carrots

½ C. chopped onion

½ C. chopped celery

2 T. butter

3 T. all-purpose flour

2 cans (14 ½ oz. each) chicken broth

2 2/3 C. cubed cooked chicken breast

1 pkg.  long grain and wild rice (I use Uncle Ben’s)

¼ C. half and half (can use fat-free)

1/8 t. pepper

Prepare the rice according to package directions.

In a large saucepan, sauté the carrots, onion, and celery in butter until tender. Stir in flour until blended; gradually add broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the cooked chicken, rice, half and half, and pepper; heat through.

Yield: 4 servings

I’ve been known to bake fresh bread, but this week I’ll be serving it with biscuits. I got a bag of those Pillsbury Grands in the freezer section…that way I don’t have to make an entire container of them.
