I took a favorite online recipe from Two Peas in Their Pod (find it HERE) and tweaked it to make it my own. I love this soup and I make it every time someone in our home has even the slightest hint of a sniffle. Actually, I make it even more than that because you don't need to be sick to be comforted by a good chicken soup. So, here it is, my recipe for Mom's Chicken Soup. Fingers crossed that it does the trick today and my household gets back on the healthy track!
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!
