This is a feel-better-soon remedy that I always have on hand. It makes a lot and keeps well in the freezer. From TOH Quick Cooking.

This was good and full of flavor. I followed the recipe other then I didn't have celery. I ended up adding an extra cup of rice as there was too much broth for us. With the extra cup, it was better for us.

This is THE go-to soup for feeding during cold and flu season. It's tasty, and as the name states - Soothing. My son and I love this recipe and I make it regularly. It is also a good food to have when trying to diet. I only put in 3/4 cup rice though, because we like more broth. I have even gifted this soup at the holidays. People love it!

3 out of 3 say 5 stars here!!!! YAY! With my picky crew, that's perfect! I used quick cooking barley instead of rice and added some peas and carrots to it as well. My son hates celery, but didn't even mention it in this soup! Thank you SOOOO much! I made this again with leftover turkey from a 20lb bird and it is every bit as good as the first time. You could put this receipe as a good soup for leftover Thanksgiving turkey. I also skimmed the fat off of the turkey drippings and used that for a broth.
