Chicken and Rice Soup - Dee Dee's
Diane Hopson Smith
The last couple of days I've had a scratchy throat. Chicken and Rice Soup just seemed to be the right medicine.
I make my Chicken and Rice soup very much like I make Chicken and Dumplings. I start with a chicken broth, chicken, some veggies and seasoning to taste. Only difference is I add rice for Chicken and Rice or dumplings for Chicken and Dumplings.
Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Chicken and Rice Soup - Dee Dee's
- In a large stock pot, add water/broth, chicken breast and chopped onion. Over a medium heat bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and continue cooking until chicken is done.
- Remove chicken and set aside to cool. Once cool enough to handle, cut up in to bite size pieces.
