Mom's Chicken Soup
In a large stock pot saute vegetables and garlic until they are slightly softened. Add broth, water, sage, thyme, pepper and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Add rice and chicken. Turn down heat to low and cook until rice is soft...about 30 minutes.
*I will often double this recipe up and freeze some. It freezes well and is wonderful to have on hand when you are sick and don't feel like cooking!
