Chicken and Rice Soup - Dee Dee's

Diane Atherton


For as long as I can remember, whenever I was sick, my mother would feed me Chicken and Rice Soup. Once I was out on my own, if she thought I was sick or getting sick, she sent me Campbell's Chicken and Rice Soup.

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!
