I make this soothing soup all the time when one of my loved ones gets sick. It is fast and makes a lot. This soup freezes well and tastes amazing.. Its all with pantry ingredients so you don't have to run out to get anything..


1 can(s)
white chicken chunks with the broth
1 can(s)
carrots, cubed with broth
2 pkg
32 0z each of chicken broth
1 Tbsp
dried minced onion
2 tsp
chicken bouillon granules
1/2 c
long grain rice, uncooked

Directions Step-By-Step

Add all ingredients to a 10 cup rice cooker. Set the rice cooker to white rice. (about 20 minutes) Serve when the rice tests done and the soup is hot. Note: I used a little bit of orzo so the pic above does not appear clear. If you use rice only the broth is yellow and clear.. Very good for colds and flu's of any kind. Best of All FAST!!
This freezes well if you use rice such as Uncle Ben's converted rice. Other types of rice will get mushy.

Use a sauce pan and simmer the soup on low for 20-40 minutes but keep an eye on it so it does not boil away. We make this one a lot when the flu or colds comes on. I hope this helps. You can use instant rice if you wish to speed up the soup....

I don't have a rice cooker so what do you recommend as an alternate cooking method?
