Last week my allergies exploded...as in I felt like my head was filled with sand. I'm constantly sneezing, coughing, my eyes are watery. I'm pretty sure I am in the midst of a sinus infection and after all of our house hunting this past weekend, I am worn smack. dab. out. The thing about being sick is that I always want chicken soup but I never feel like making it. Today I was determined to make it but instead of the hour long process that it takes me to make it all from scratch, I cheated and it is the best chicken soup I have ever had...fo ril yo. I won't be going back to the old recipe.
Here's the recipe for my Cheater's Chicken and Rice Soup:
1 package of Uncle Ben's Ready Rice (Whole Grain Chicken Medley, pictured)
1 can of chicken broth
6 cups of water
1 rotisserie chicken
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 cup of diced carrots (frozen or fresh)
dash of pepper
Add your rice, broth, carrots, cumin, pepper and water in a large pot and bring to a boil while you tear the rotisserie chicken into small pieces. I added some of the skin to the pot also to give it some flavor and I used a breast, thigh and leg. You can add as much chicken as you want. I ended up using 1/3 of the chicken. I also added some of the good juice from the plastic rotisserie container that the chicken came in (fatty broth..how could I resist?)
I let it come to a boil and then I cut a couple of thick slices of french bread to dip in my soup.
I'm feeling better already!
