1 teaspoon of coconut oil
1/4 cup of diced red onion
1/2 cup of diced carrots
1 teaspoon of dried marjoram
2 tablespoons of flour
1 package of Near East Long Grain & Wild Rice with Flavor Packet
4 cups of low sodium chicken broth

1/4 cup of milk
1 cup of already cooked and shredded chicken
salt, per yours taste
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
In a large pan over medium heat, melt the coconut oil. Next, add the onions and carrots and cook them until they begin to soften. Add the dried marjoram, flour, and seasoning packet from the rice. Stir everything together and then add the rice, chicken broth, and water. Bring it to a boil. Then, put a lid on top and simmer the ingredients for approximately 15 minutes. In a small pan, mix the heavy cream with the milk and heat it over low heat. Next, stir it into the main soup pot and add in the shredded chicken. Continue cooking until the rice is finished cooking (approximately 3o minutes). Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
