  • 3 (10.5 ounce) cans condensed chicken broth

  • 2 cups water

  • ½ cup finely chopped green onions

  • ½ cup uncooked wild rice

  • 8 slices bacon

  • ½ cup margarine

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon poultry seasoning

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 cups half-and-half cream

  • 1 ½ cups cooked, diced turkey meat

  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry


  1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine chicken broth, water, green onions and wild rice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer until rice is tender, 35 to 40 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Allow to cool and then crumble. Set aside.

  3. When rice is tender, melt the margarine in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in flour, salt, poultry seasoning and pepper all at once. Cook, stirring, until smooth and bubbly. Stir in half-and-half and cook until thickened, 2 minutes. Stir half-and-half mixture into rice mixture. Stir in bacon, turkey and sherry. Heat through and serve.
