Chicken & Brown Rice Soup

I found this recipe for Chicken and Brown Rice Soup in a Parents Magazine. I will type the recipe as it was shown in the magazine, and add changes I made in green.


  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken thighs I just use chicken breasts, and however much I have. If I only have one breast, that's all I use. If I have more, I use more.
  • Salt (divided) and pepper
  • 2 tsp Canola Oil I didn't use this.
  • 2 cups diced onion I didn't measure it, I just grabbed an onion, chopped it up and threw it in the pot.
  • 1 1/2 cups celery If I have celery, I use it. Otherwise, I don't worry about it.
  • 1 cup frozen carrots I use fresh, frozen or canned. Whatever you have on hand is fine. Just keep in mind, if you have canned, drain them and add them toward the end or they will fall apart.
  • 2 tsp sage I wasn't sure if they meant ground sage or sage leaves. I had ground sage and I only used 1 tsp. It could have used more, I think.
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp thyme
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 4 cups low-salt chicken broth If you like cans, just use two or three cans and call it a day.
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

    1. Remove skin from chicken; season with salt and pepper. Heat an 8-quart pot on medium. Sear chicken in oil until golden, 10 minutes. meanwhile, mix onions, celery, carrots, sage, garlic powder, a little more salt, thyme, and nutmeg. My version - Start cooking earlier in the day. Mix onions and seasonings into the broth. Add chicken breasts, and simmer with the lid on for a few hours.

    2.Add vegetable-and-spice mixture to chicken. Saute until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Add broth and the water. Cover pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 30 minutes, until chicken pulls away from the bone. Remove chicken; discard bones and add meat back to the pot. Mix in rice; heat 2 to 3 minutes. Serves 8. My version - Remove chicken breasts from pot and shred with 2 forks. Return to pot and add water. Chop vegetables and add to pot. When vegetables are done, add cooked rice and let simmer for a couple of minutes. Serves - I don't know. It depends on how much chicken you use.
