Recipe Comments & Reviews

Have made this a couple of times. Easy and good. Didn't have fresh carrots one time so I used canned sliced carrots. Added them at the same time as the chicken and rice went in since they just needed to be heated. Worked out well.
Great for dinner on a cold winter night!
We made it with corn because the store was out of celery. (Crazy right?) It was amazing and so easy to make!
I have made this several times and love it! I use brown rice and add about 2 1/2 cups of it. I have used both rotisserie chicken leftovers as well as oven baked chicken - both very good.
First time to make this.....pretty easy but all I had in veggies I had to cut and dice....so time consuming there...already had a chicken from night before....smells delicious :)
I made this soup and it was delicious. Super easy and fast. Used left over rotisserie chicken.
Will make it again.
Super easy, very flavorful. Perfect for this busy mama!
