Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

posted by 6 years ago


1 Tbs. vegetable oil

3 lbs. chicken pieces

2 whole carrots

2 stalks celery, cut in half

1 large whole onion, peeled

1 qt. IMAGINE - Free Range Chicken Broth

Salt & fresh ground pepper, to taste

5 cloves garlic, crushed

6 oz. Gourmet HouseĀ® Rice-White & Wild Rice Blend

3 carrots, chopped

1 1/2 Tbs. lemon juice

Fresh parsley, chopped


Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat; add the chicken, whole carrots, celery, and whole onion. Cook until the chicken is browned, about 10 minutes. Season with salt & pepper. Stir in the crushed garlic cloves, and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Pour the chicken broth and enough water into the pot to cover the chicken and vegetables. Simmer for 2 to 3 hours. Add water as necessary. While the soup is simmering, cook the rice according to package directions. Refrigerate when done. Remove cooked chicken from the pot to cool. Strain the broth, discarding cooked vegetables. Shred chicken and return to the pot along with the broth; stir in chopped carrots and lemon juice. Bring soup to a simmer, and cook until the carrots are soft, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cooked rice and chopped parsley. Heat until hot, about 5 minutes. (Serves: 6)
