Homemade Chicken Soup
This homemade chicken soup is perfect for a cold day.
Cost $.78 per serving
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 1 onion diced
- 2 carrots chopped
- 2 celery stalks chopped
- 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
- 8 cups chicken broth
- 1 cup quinoa/rice blend or brown rice
Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large pot. Add the onion, lower the heat to medium low, and cook with the cover on for 3 minutes. Add the carrots and celery to the pot, and cook with the cover on for another 5 minutes, or until the carrots and celery are beginning to get tender.
Add the chicken, broth, and rice (or rice quinoa blend) to the pot. Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low. Simmer gently for 20 minutes, or as long as it takes to cook the rice blend.
If the soup is thicker than you prefer, add a cup or two of water to make it thinner. Also, taste the soup to see if it needs a little salt. This will depend on how much salt is in your broth.
