This soup was very simple to make and came together quickly. It was a great way to use up leftover chicken that we had grilled on a beer roaster a few days ago. I used jasmine rice, and I used a 15.5 oz can of garbanzo beans (this did not seem like too many beans). The only other modification that I made was that I added a little bit of leftover grilled bell pepper. I found the soup to be hearty and flavorful. I garnished my bowl with lots of fresh cilantro from the garden, which I just stirred into the leftovers in the pot afterwards. I thought the cilantro really made the soup and is a must. I also tried my soup with a little bit of shredded cheddar on top, and this seemed to be a nice, but unnecessary, addition. Thanks for posting this soup. I would make it again.
