Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup



In all of my travels the last couple of weeks I managed to get a cold.  The true sign that I am starting to get sick is sneezes. I never sneeze.  When I start sneezing, I am on the brink a cold or some other nasty nasally condition.




Sneezing is my warning; I immediately get on the defense. Lots and lots of OJ, more liquids than normal, vitamins, and more sleep.  This method tends to let me keep sneezing and sniffling for a few days but never really leads to anything else. 




We happened to have leftovers from a roasted chicken in the fridge and I decided to make some chicken soup for an extra cold battle initiative.  Even if I wasn't trying to fight a cold this soup would have hit the spot.  Veggies, chicken, broth, and a bit of milk for texture and flavor (you can more it more creamy by using whole milk or half and half).
