Chicken Wild Rice Soup

My daughter and husband love wild rice soup! I am not a big fan of it. But I do try to make it at least once a year for them. This version that I found on Pinterest wasn't to bad.
4 TBS Butter
4 TBS Flour
1 Medium Onion, Sliced and cut into 2 inch slivers
1/4 pound Button Mushrooms, sliced
2 TBS Dried Italian Herb/Seasoning Mix
4 Cups Chicken Stock
1 Cup Wild Rice
1 Cup Heavy Cream
Fresh Ground Black pepper
Meat from 2 Breast Quarters From a Rotisserie Chicken, diced
2 TBS Fresh Herbs (I used Rosemary and Chives) to garnish
Recipes, Chicken Wild Rice Soup
Cooking Directions
Add the Chicken Stock to the crock pot.
While that is heating, in a large Saute pan, start the roux... Over medium high heat, melt the butter. Once it is melted, add the flour and stir continuously for 2 minutes.
Add the onions to the roux and stir for another 2 minutes, until the onions start to soften.
Add the Mushrooms and stir, cook for 2 more minutes...
 Add the Italian herbs and mix.

Add the Wild Rice, Heavy Cream and Pepper. Stir and lid up the cooker. 
Now the soup cooks for 4 to 5 on high, 8-10 on Low.
Add the chicken and stir to mix. 
Garnish with fresh herbs.

This version was a lot lighter then a normal wild rice soup which made it much more to my liking. Mouse and Steve thought it was pretty good, though I think Steve prefers the original style.
