Quick Chicken and Rice Soup
Quick Chicken and Rice Soup is a snap to pull together when it’s cold … and it is just that today here in Atlanta. We usually have some staples either in the freezer (like home made chicken stock) or the pantry (bone broth or organic broths) to use along with the easy to pick up rotisserie chicken! We are a two person household most of the time, but most often prepare extra’s on most things for either planned re-purposed meals or things like this. Soup.
Cooking rice isn’t something I do that often, but I just received a very unique gift of heirloom rice from all over the globe! We had some over new years with scallops and fresh tuna and of course I planned for extra. Having extra of something like cooked rice , or pasta, can make a last minute meal easy. If I roast a whole chicken or pick up a rotisserie chicken, I always have it in mind to prepare broth or eventually make soup because we don’t eat the whole chicken in one meal. Larger families may need two chickens just for dinner. I understand as I am the youngest of seven siblings.
So look into the fridge, freezer or pantry and grab the basics and make some soup on the fly. Here’s a quick recipe with things that are easily picked up or may be on hand even … the drizzle of quality Herbes De Provence Infused Olive Oil brings it to life.
