Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

This soup is amazing! My kids scarf it and ask for more until it's gone.

4 c. chicken broth
2 c. water
2 cooked chicken breast halves, shredded or cubed
1 4.5 oz pkg Uncle Ben's quick cooking long grain and wild rice mix
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. butter
2 c. half & half

In a large pot combine broth and water. Bring to a boil and stir in rice (reserving the seasoning packet). Cover and remove from heat.

In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Stir in seasoning packet until bubbly and turn to low heat. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Whisk in half & half slowly. Cook until thickened, for about 5 minutes. Stir into broth and rice and heat until warmed through, adding your cooked chicken, as well.

I think it's good with a cup of frozen peas, too. I often use a rotisserie chicken and milk instead of half & half.
