Quick Chicken Rice Soup

RECIPE

Ingredients:

2 Boxes 32 ounce chicken broth

1 Chicken breast

3 Small carrots (1/2 cup diced)

2 Celery stalks (1/2 cup diced)

1 Small zucchini (1/2 cup diced)

1 Small onion (1/4 cup minced)

1 Bunch parsley (1/4-1/2 cup chopped fine)

4 Green onions

 

2 Garlic cloves

1 Cup pre-cooked rice

Directions:

Prepare 1 cup cooked white or brown rice according to directions. Allow to cook while you are preparing other ingredients.

Pour broth into soup pot and place covered over 3/4 heat.

Cut the chicken into small cubes.

Cut carrots and celery stalks into 1/8 thick slices. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise then cut into 1/8 thick slices.

Finely mince the onion until you have 1/4 cup. Finely chop the parsley until you have 1/4 to 1/2 cup. Slice the green onion into 1/8 inch length pieces. Crush or mince the garlic cloves.

Add chicken and vegetables to boiling pot of broth. Cover. Bring back to a boil then lower the heat to bring to a high simmer. Cook for 15 minutes — keeping an eye on the soup to make sure it doesn’t boil over.

After 15 minutes, add a 1/2 cup to 1 cup of rice and cover and bring back to a high simmer. Then cook for another five minutes.
