  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 3 Tablespoons toasted pine nuts, chopped

In a medium bowl, combine chicken, pine nuts and basil. Set aside until ready to serve. Spray bottom of a large soup pot with cooking spray and preheat over medium heat. Add onions and sauté, stirring regularly for 4-6 minutes until softened. Add chicken broth; bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; whisk in spreadable cheese until well combined. Add cooked wild rice blend, stir well, and simmer over medium-low heat for 10-12 minutes to combine flavors. To serve: ladle bisque into individual shallow serving bowls. Mound an equal amount of the chicken mixture into the center of each serving. Serve immediately.
