Why You’ll Love This Chicken and Rice Soup

Yes, I know it is the middle of June and I am posting a soup recipe. But my mom (who I especially made this soup for) caught a cold and it was raining all day on Saturday when I made it, so it is perfectly apropos. 😊

The usual meal of choice for someone that is feeling under the weather is a big bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup. However, my mother is gluten-intolerant. Since I did not have any gluten-free pasta on hand, I decided to whip up a delicious celiac-friendly alternative instead.

Hearty soups like this one are the perfect solution for a quick dinner, because they are super satisfying and can be made in the blink of an eye. In addition, just one bowl can be a great source of nutrients and provides a generous dose of comfort. This filling Chicken and Rice Soup recipe is made with lots of vegetables, rice and is made extra easy by using rotisserie chicken (although you can use any leftover chicken you have on hand).

The verdict? My mom loved it, and I am sure you will too! ♡

Notes

  1. For the chicken in this recipe, you can use rotisserie or any leftover cooked chicken. Alternatively, you can cook and dice two small chicken breasts, which would yield about two cups of meat.
  2. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to five days or in the freezer for up to three months.
