Chicken Rice Soup
Chicken and rice soup is nutritious, affordable, and easy to make. As an extra incentive, it also nourishes the soul and seems to please everyone: who wouldn’t want to sit down to a steamy bowl of homemade, fresh soup with tender, hearty chunks of white chicken, a flavorful broth, your favorite vegetables, and soft pillows of rice?
The ingredients for chicken rice soup are readily available at your local grocery store, and are all budget-friendly. Along with succulent but lean chunks of chicken breast, puffy grains of white rice help fill the tummy. The soup can be prepared with a variety of fresh vegetables such as carrots, peas, or celery, and can easily accommodate your creative flourishes. Try adding dry or fresh herbs such as rosemary and thyme to add a mouth-watering aroma to your soup.
Warm and inviting, chicken rice soup is especially good on chilly days. It’s also a smart choice for anyone looking for a healthy meal that’s low in calories, high in protein, and packed with flavor. It can easily be prepared ahead of time and left to simmer, which will allow the flavors to develop further. It can also be frozen for later, and easily thawed in the microwave, coming out as delicious as the day it was made.
