“Since winters here are damp and cold, I make chicken rice soup,” remarks Marilyn W. of Sparks, Maryland. “For a change, I add a package of long grain and wild rice mix. The aroma and flavor perk up a dull winter day.”
“I came up with this thick flavorful soup while making
some adjustments to a favorite stovetop chicken casserole,” relates Janice Mitchell of Aurora, Colorado. It goes together in short order using precooked chicken chunks and a couple of pulses in a mini-processor to chop the veggies, she adds. “We like this soup for lunch with a crisp roll and fresh fruit.” TIP: “Using some of the broth to saute the vegetables keeps the fat content down,” Janice notes.
