Directions

  1. Combine chicken broth, onion, celery, carrots, parsley, pepper, thyme, and bay leaf in a Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer until the onion and celery begin to soften, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir chicken into the simmering broth; cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf. Stir rice and lime juice into the broth; cook and stir just until rice is hot and grains separate, about 1 minute. Garnish with lime slices.

This is a great recipe. The favor is light and good. I added 1/2 teaspoon of basil (the taste is sweeter). I made my own chicken stock (see all recipes). Because I made my own stock, I added 1 teaspoon of salt. My family loves this recipe!

GREAT recipe. I also make my own chicken broth so I added a teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning. Because I was taking this to a soup & bread meal I doubled the recipe and it was perfect for feeding a crowd of hungry Lutherans! Thanks for sharing!

I like this soup because it is really healthy - all the ingredients are organic (it is difficult to buy not organic rice or onion), it is fast and delicious. I recommend this soup for everybody who likes healthy and tasty food!

I've made a resolution to stop wasting so much food this year. We had chicken and rice for dinner so a quick search led me to this recipe to use the leftovers in. The soup looks and smells great and was so quick and easy to make being the chicken was pre-cooked. Some quick packaging in mason jars will make for tasty grab and go work lunches this week. Thanks for a great recipe!

I have to say that the ingredients in this recipe are so easy that I really thought that it would end up being just blah like the hundreds of other chicken soup recipes that I've tried that never taste just quite right. This was really good though, even my kids liked it which is a miracle! Nice flavor that wasn't too much of this or that and it seems to be a great base if you want to add other stuff to your preference as well. I love that it has simple pronounceable ingredients so that it can be all organic if you so choose. Thanks for sharing!

This is by far the best chicken and rice recipe I have ever had! The addition of the lime gives this soup such a clean feel, especially since some chicken broths can feel heavy and oily. I make this on the weekends and then have enough leftover for lunch for the rest of the week! I guarantee that you will NOT be disappointed with this soup.
