Creamy Chicken Rice Soup Recipe

“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.

"I added 1/4 tsp of each (thyme, oregano and changed regular pepper to lemon pepper w/dill) . It was delicious and next time I make it I will have to double the recipe and freeze some of it for a cold winter day or when one of us is sick as it makes a good feel good soup."
