Chicken and Rice Soup

Ahhh...comfort food.

My tummy wasn't cooperating today. So, I decided to make a pot of soup. It was the perfect dinner; light, easy, and comforting.

I'll be freezing the rest...it made a large pot. Next time I'm not feeling so great, I'll know just what to have for dinner!

Here's the recipe...

Chicken Rice Soup
my own recipe...

10 cups chicken stock
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 small onion, chopped
1 bay leaf
1 cup uncooked rice
freshly ground pepper

Pour chicken stock into medium stockpot. Add chicken, carrots, onion and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove chicken and dice. Return chicken to pot. Add rice and simmer, covered for 15-20 minutes until rice is tender. Remove bay leaf and serve with freshly ground pepper.


  1. Sarah-

    My mother always said that she knew what gender of baby she was having by the intensity of her morning sickness.

    As you probably know, I was severly ill with Morgan. I'm pretty sure this last pregnancy was a boy b/c my morning sickness was a lot better than Morgan... definitely still sick, but less so.

    Hmmmmm... So how sick ARE you? :)

  2. VERY sick, hopefully. Hey! Can't I hope for a girl?? She needs someone pulling for her ;) haha

  3. Well, I've only been a little bit sick so far. We'll see how it goes over these next four weeks or so. And, yes, Rach...of course you can hope for a girl!
