 378 Cal | 11g Fats | 29g Carbs | 37g Protein



• 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
• 2 cups sliced mushrooms, (about 4 ounces)
• ¾ cup chopped celery
• ¾ cup chopped carrots
• ¼ cup chopped shallots
• ¼ cup all-purpose flour
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
• 4 cup of reduced-sodium chicken broth
• 1 cup quick-cooking or instant wild rice,
• 3 cups shredded cooked chicken, or turkey (See notes)
• ½ cup reduced-fat sour cream
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley



1) Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add mushrooms, celery, carrots and shallots; cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add flour, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes more.

2) Add broth and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Add rice and reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook until the rice is tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in turkey (or chicken), sour cream and parsley; cook until heated through, about 2 minutes more.

Notes: To poach chicken breasts, place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan. Add lightly salted water to cover and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes.
