Homemade Chicken and Rice Soup

Easy Chicken and Rice Soup

We’ve discussed our love for soups about a gazillion times here on the site. It’s almost as if there is nothing more delicious than a big, warm bowl of soup when the weather is cold and Christmas is around the corner. Just the thought of this makes my heart swell with happiness. 😀 Because we love soups so much, we have enjoyed trying out new recipes and sharing them with all y’all. We only share our favorites and although we have TOO many favorites on the site, we want to share another recipe for you guys that we really enjoyed – Chicken and Rice Soup.

We had never tried a recipe even similar to this, so it was really fun to try a soup with a whole new flavor and texture. Adding rice into the soup makes it really hearty – not to mention all of the other yummy ingredients this soup is packed with! I should also mention that this Chicken and Rice Soup was super simple to make. Once the rice was cooked, it only took about another 20 minutes or so before the soup was finished, which makes it perfect for whipping up last-minute. I’m thinking it would be even better served in a Sourdough bread bowl (my favorite!!)

    Quick question – the ingredients list say “2 cans – 10-3/4 ounces each – condensed cream of chicken and mushroom soup.” Does that mean 1 can of each soup or 2 cans each of each soup (so 4 total)? This looks amazing and I definitely want to add it to next week’s meal plan!

    Hi! I made this soup tonight and it was delicious. I doubled it, not really sure why, sometimes I forget my family of 4 including small children is not an army. Anyway… do you think this soup would do an OK job if I froze it? I’m think little servings of it in the freezer would make awesome lunches!

      Haha!! I do that too sometimes!! I haven’t tried, but I’m sure you can. Those would make great lunches, already portioned out! 🙂 Thank you!
