Author: Pinch of Yum, from Cambridge Medical Center Cookbook
Prep time: 30 mins
Cook time: 1 hour
Total time: 1 hour 30 mins
Serves: 6

3 (10 3/4 oz) cans chicken broth (I make my own broth from Chicken bones)
2 cups water
1/2 cup uncooked wild rice, rinsed
1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
1/2 cup margarine or butter (I use Olive oil or butter)
3/4 cup all-purpose flour (I use Gluten Free flour)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups half and half (I use rice milk)
1 1/2 cup cubed cooked chicken or turkey
8 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
1 tablespoon chopped pimiento
2-3 tablespoons dry sherry, if desired

In a large saucepan, combine chicken broth and water. Add wild rice and onions. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 30-45 minutes (or until rice is tender).
In a medium saucepan, melt margarine, stir in flour, salt, seasoning, and pepper. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly.
Gradually stir in half and half, cook until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Add remaining ingredients. Heat gently, stirring frequently. Do not boil.
