Prep Time :15 mins
Cook Time :1 hr
Total Time :1 hr 15 mins
Servings :8 servings


  • ½ cup 8 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 large carrots peeled and diced
  • 23 celery stalks diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 23 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 ½ cups wild rice well rinsed and drained
  •  cup all-purpose flour
  • 8 cups 2 quarts chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 rotisserie chicken shredded (about 3-4 cups shredded chicken)
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large dutch oven, melt the butter over low heat. Once the butter has melted, add the carrots, celery, and onion. Season with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper and cook over medium heat until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, wild rice, and the flour. Stir to combine and cook for 1-2 minutes to lightly toast the rice and cook the flour.
  • Slowly add the chicken stock, stirring constantly. Add the herbs and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer for 40-45 minutes, until the rice is very nearly cooked through.
  • Stir in the shredded chicken and the heavy cream; continue cooking until the chicken is warmed through and the rice is tender, another 5-10 minutes.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.
