Hedda's Chicken(Or Turkey) and Rice Soup

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Hedda Lettuce in On

Original recipe from a former colleague. This is so good with either left over chicken or or turkey or with meat purchased especially for the recipe. I added a specific amount of pepper and a pinch of dried tarragon. A good soup for kids to make and enjoy!

What a terrific and hearty soup! This was so easy to throw together and used ingredients that most people have on hand. I poached chicken breasts for this and just realized that I forgot the tarragon! The whole family enjoyed this a lot and we will have it again for sure. Made for Pick A Chef 2011 for my adopted chef, Hedda Lettuce in Ontario! Thanks!:)
