A delicious and easy soup with ingredients you usually have on hand. I have used rotessire chicken as well as cooking the chicken breasts. Also I usually use chicken broth for the water for a richer flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring broth to a boil in a dutch oven. Add chicken and cook until done. Remove chicken from broth to cool, reserving broth in dutch oven.
  2. Saute carrots, celery, onion and parsley in butter in a large skillet until tender. Add garlic and cook one minute. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Add sauteed vegetables and chicken to reserved broth. Stir in rice, salt and pepper and simmer for 15 minutes. Mix together half-n-half and cornstarch; add to soup. Stir until thickened.

I buy rotisserie chicken pieces at Costco and keep them in the freezer for recipes like this. We were under the weather here and I had everything on hand for this so didn't have to drag myself to the store! This was delicious without a lot of work and fuss. Only thing I changes besides the chicken, was adding another garlic clove. Thanks for a keeper. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.
