Hearty Chicken & Rice Soup

I made this recipe years ago and we just busted it out on this chilly evening for dinner. It has a nice robust flavor and is really simple. Our family usually boils a chicken, keeps the stock and divides up the meat for a few meals. You can also use a deli roasted chicken, but be aware of the seasoning on the chicken. I find that by pre-cooking the rice not as much of the broth is absorbed, which is nice if you have leftovers.
This is one of my favorite chicken soup recipes, because of the seasonings. It is still a good ol' bowl of chicken soup but with a little flair.
