Chicken Vegetable Rice Soup Recipe

      

I love soup.

Steamy. Nourishing. Satisfying. Tasty.

Low in calories.

What’s not to love?

And after days and weeks of over-indulging, my body is craving light simple food.

Soup is a wonderful solution.

A steamy bowl of soup, like this chicken vegetable rice soup, for lunch or dinner is the perfect way to lighten up after holidays and vacations.

There are lots of ready-made soups available these days that taste pretty good. But nothing compares to homemade.
