Chicken and Rice Soup

When the weather drops and/or you’re craving soup, nothing satisfies quite like chicken and rice soup. Ready in 30 minutes (or less), you’ll definitely want to make this one again and again.

With winter in full swing and single digit temperatures on the forcast for this weekend, it is one thousand percent soup weather. Some of my favorite warming soups pre-FAILSAFE were a tomato-based vegetable minestrone and a spicy vegetarian chili. These days, my favorites involve chicken and rice or noodles.

Because, honestly, what else is there?! (Okay, there’s also Egg Pasta Soup.)

I’m not too upset, though.

Chicken soup happens to be one of my all-time favorites. There is something so comforting to me about the process of making it; a large stock pot filled with water, a whole chicken, some celery (and sometimes carrots), leeks, and garlic on the stove for a few hours. The smells that emanate from the kitchen are intoxicating and there is something really grounding for me about pulling apart the chicken once it’s cooked.

And don’t even get me started on that first warm bowl of soup. It is truly heaven on earth.

When I’m in the mood for a quicker soup (or find that I can’t tolerate the long cook time of traditional chicken soup), this chicken and rice soup made with chicken breasts is an excellent choice. It’s flavorful, warming, and best of all, it’s FAILSAFE.

So the next time the weather drops and/or you’re craving soup, reach for this one. You’ll have a satisfying bowl of soup in your hands in under 30 minutes, with plenty of leftovers to freeze or enjoy later (if you can!).
