    1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine chicken stock, water, spring onions and wild rice. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer until rice is tender, 35 to 40 minutes.
    2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large frying pan over medium heat until crisp. Allow to cool and then crumble. Set aside.
    3. When rice is tender, melt the margarine in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in flour, salt, chicken seasoning and pepper all at once. Cook, stirring, until smooth and bubbly. Stir in single cream and cook until thickened, 2 minutes. Stir creamy mixture into rice mixture. Stir in bacon, turkey and sherry. Heat through and serve.
