      I have been craving chicken and rice soup for weeks, and this sure hit the spot!!!! I added 3 cloves of garlic, left out the celery and doubled the carrots (didn't have any celery). I also cooked the rice right in the veggie/chicken/broth mix, and added the milk at the end. So good!!!!!!! I like my soup thick, more like stew, so I added about a cup and a half of uncooked rice, and ended up using four cups of chicken broth and 3 cups of milk, so with the amount of liquid in the recipe, 1/2 a cup of uncooked rice should do you. :)
