Sunday nights are always very bittersweet for me. I love how relaxing and low key they are, but at the same time, I’m usually pretty bummed that the weekend is over. Weekends always seem to go so fast!!!! Add a storm that’s brewing with thunder and lightening and you have the perfect recipe for comfort soup. This recipe is a real winner. I cannot say enough about it. Bf even said “this is my new favorite”. While we frequently joke that he says that all the time, this time it was with complete seriousness! So you should definitely give it a try!
Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup
Adapted from Delightful Country Cookin’
1/2 large onion or 1 small onion, chopped
1 large carrot, sliced
1-2 celery rib (depending on size), chopped
2 T. margarine
1/2 cup flour
8 cups chicken broth
3 cups cooked brown rice
1 cup or a little more chopped cooked chicken breast
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 t. poultry seasoning
1 cup evaporated milk
To begin the preparations, I started by cooking the rice. Now I must confess. I made a really silly mistake. I read the recipe as 3 cups rice rather than cooked rice. Which really doesn’t make much sense now that I think about it. But anyway, I have lots of extra rice. Stayed tuned to see what I do with it.
