What's Cookin' At the Works: Soup's on! Week #6

Today’s selection of soups for the Soup of the Week Club is brought to us by Joyce in Design.  Chicken with Rice– comforting for the soul and warming for the body.  I dunno about you, but it’s been sooooo cold lately!  Nice to have a cup of piping hot soup to chase the shivers away!

Here’s Joyce’s recipe:

1 ½ onion chopped

1 ½ cups celery chopped small

1 ½ cups carrots chopped small

6 garlic cloves chopped finely or crushed

2 Tbs olive oil

2 Tbs butter

12 cups chicken stock

4 cups cooked and shredded chicken

1 box of prepared wild and long grain rice (per package instructions)

1 package of dried chicken and noodle soup mix – mix only requires chicken stock to complete…it was purchased from a gift-y type of store – use the noodles for some other occasion J

Fresh ground pepper (1/8 tsp or so)

Sauté onion in oil and butter for 5 minutes. Add celery, garlic and carrots and sauté for another 5 minutes. Add soup packet mix and sauté for another minute or two. Then add chicken stock and pepper. Simmer for 2 hours. Add shredded chicken and rice and finish cooking –about 10 minutes.

Check back next week for another fine soup recipe by the talented Clothworks Team!
