Basic Chicken and Rice Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by sherryb76

A no-frills, delicious soup that I am often asked to make. You can substitute noodles for the rice, but rice is our preference.

Autumn 2006 PAC: This was a good basic recipe for soup. I did go back and add another chicken breast as we like ours with more meat. I had never had bell pepper in my C & R soup and it added a nice flavor. Thanks Sherryb for sharing.
