Savory Chicken and Rice Soup

Deneece Gursky


This morning I decided to take the leftovers from yesterdays dinner (posted as Creamy Garlic Chicken, broccoli and potatoes) and make todays lunch. There wasnt enough to just feed everyone the same thing for lunch as they had last night sooo i added a few things and ended up with the most delicious savory chicken and rice soup i have ever had. It has a unique creaminess and flavor youre going to love. Serve it up with some grilled cheese tomato and onion sandwiches and you have yourself a hearty lunch.
