This recipe is from one of the best recipe books I have ever had, Favorite Recipes II from Sunset Magazine. Every recipe I have ever tried is great. I used some canned chicken broth and when I ran out, I used Better than Bouillon Chicken Base. It was delicious. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs.

This soup is great. I've never made a soup with a white sauce, rice and chicken. Usually I have that in restaurants. And this one is better than in restaurants. I used low-sodium chicken stock. I used 2 medium zucchini. Instead of 6 tbs of butter, I used only 3 tbs and used 3 tbs of water to combine with the flour. I thickened the sauce in the microwave. I used skim milk. I omitted the green onion. I used no-salt seasoning. Thanks Lynn :) Made for Please Review My Recipe

This was very good! It made a satisfying lunch for us today along with some crusty bread. Thanks for sharing!

This was a really great and filling soup! It turned out really creamy and I loved all the veggies. I had to add quite a bit of salt and pepper at the end and I may add some herbs in with the vegetables next time. All in all we enjoyed this soup!
