‘Soup’er Recipe: Chicken Rice Soup

posted in: 'Soup'er Recipes, Gluten Free | 6

Who can resist a tasty bowl of soup on a chilly or not so chilly day.

I made some chicken rice soup out of an extra cooked chicken breast, some fresh veggies and some veggies from my frozen stash.

My favourite chicken bouillon to add to the boiling water – 1 tsp per cup of water. I like Better Than Bouillon stock but it isn’t make in a gluten free environment. So you need to assess whether it is a good option for you.

my favourite chopping tool and bouillon
  • Bring water to boil
  • add 1 tsp bouillon to 1 cup of water
  • add all chopped veggies, frozen veggies, rice and chicken
  • bring to a boil, then simmer till potatoes and carrots are soft

Soup for two. This soup freezes well so you could double or triple the amounts to have some for the freezer to enjoy later. To save space in the freezer I freeze my soups flat in freezer bags.

storage jars for the fridge

For storing in the fridge I use jars, that way I can easily see what is inside them and they pop into the dish washer so are clean for the next time.

I’m sharing with Souper Sunday, where you can link up your soup, stew, chili, soupy curries, salad, or sandwich dish.

    Your chicken rice soup looks good but I am not a rice eater but do fried rice. It is good I can check in on your soups recipes from time to time. dana & Al like plain rice . Dana always has plum sauce so butter & plum sauce I can eat some.

      Interesting Myrt, I don’t eat fried rice as it involves adding extra ingredients with extra additives that don’t agree with me. It’s a good thing we all know what works for us and what doesn’t. Have a good day.

    Chicken rice soup is such a great classic. Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays at Kahakai Kitchen this week. 😉

      Soup season is coming to an end here in my part of Ontario as it heats up. I do love soup at any time of the year but just don’t make as much of it in the summer. I’ll be joining in with Souper Sundays whenever I can over the next couple of month.
