"A taste of Brazil, this simple soup is made special by the addition of rice, tomatoes, carrots, and chopped ham. These combine to lift the flavor out of the ordinary, making this soup a substantial one." — CORWYNN DARKHOLME

One of the best chicken soup recipes I have ever tasted. I do this, buy a roasted chicken at the grocery store, (the ones they cook in a rotisserie)let it cool, remove all the skin and bones, then dice in big pieces, put in the stock pot with the ingredients, cook and serve. Really a great flavor.
Good the first day, AWESOME the next. Make it the day before so the flavors will blend better.
Two thumbs up! My subs: I used one pkg of chicken (~1.5 lbs) - this seemed like plenty. I did double up the ham to please my meat-loving fiance. I also subbed a can of diced tomatoes for the fresh (though in retrospect I think the fresh would have been much better.) Overall, I think this soup took almost 2 hours from pot to table. Next time I'll increase the rice and use cilantro for the parsley.
Awesome Recipe! We selected this receipe for an international dinner at our church. EVERYONE loved it and many asked for a copy of the recipe. We used bouillon cubes to enrich the broth and added a rib of celery (chopped). It was delicious!!! There were about 50 - 60 people at our dinner so that gives you 300 stars!!!!
This was a great chicken soup. I added 1/4 can of tomato sauce to give the soup a little more tomatoey flavor. It reminds me of a spanish stew my mother made when I was growing up. I may add a few potatoes next time. Thanks for the recipe.
what a great soup, and so healthy, too. We added a rib of diced celery to the mix, and a little celery salt and pepper. WOW! thanks for the keeper :-)
I really loved this soup, But what is really important is My Husband loved it.
I added a little more rice.
This was my first try at making chicken soup, and it was delicious! I only made some slight changes, I used a can of diced tomatoes(strained) instead of fresh, and added a little more rice and ham. Will definitely make again.
