Creamy Turkey with Wild Rice Soup

3 cans chicken broth
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups uncooked wild rice
1/2 cup green onions finely chopped
bring to boil and simmer 30-35 minutes

seperate pan- melt 1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
1/8 tsp pepper
gradually stir in 2 cups half & half until slightly thickened (I use fat free)
Mix with broth

1/2 cup cubed turkey or chicken (I like to brown chicken with chicken broth for flavor)
8 slices crumbled bacon

This soup thickens the longer it sits. When reheating leftovers I like to add chicken broth to make it last longer.
