Absolutely delicious! I simmered my chicken pieces in broth & water til cooked, then cooled & shredded them. Added 1 can water, then 1/2 c.wild rice + 1/4 c.pearl barley & simmered 30 min, then added 3 thickly sliced carrots & simmered 15 min more. Then I added the roux - used 1 large chopped yellow onion in a combo of butter,butter substitute (ICBINB),&EVOO to reduce fat. Used only 1/2 c flour, then 2 c.skim milk. After adding that to soup & stirring to dissolve any clumps, I added chicken, 1 can mushroom drained (instead of pimentos) & 10-oz bag spinach - cook until spinach is wilted. We had it for dinner along with oven-roasted sweet potatoes and it was awesome. Made a big pot, which will let us enjoy lunch, dinner and lunch! My husband rated this 4-star but enjoyed it a lot.
