Directions

  1. 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 and pepper. Stir in the crushed garlic cloves, and cook until soft, about 1 to 2 minutes. Pour enough water into the pot to cover the chicken and vegetables. Simmer for 2 to 3 hours. Add water as necessary.
  2. While the soup is simmering, cook the rice according to package instructions. Refrigerate when done.
  3. Removed 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. Season with additional salt and pepper, if needed.

This soup is a very good base for your own tastes. The only problem was that I had to add a few bouillon cubes, since my stock didn't come out very flavorful. I also added spinach, mushrooms, and green beans. My husband said this was restaurant quality soup.

I made this the other day. Served it to a friend who worked in the food industry. She loved it and so did everyone else.

Very good! I didn't use the lemon juice or packaged wild rice. I had a big container of wild rice, so I added a cup of that with some oregano, thyme, garlic salt, and black pepper. Also ommitted the garlic.

A good recipe to be sure. Please wait until youve added the chicken/veggie/rice/juice to the soup before seasoning with boullion. The flavor really comes out when they meet. I ended up adding some cream to my bowl to kick it up a little more.

This soup was so good. I made a big pot of this and my husband loved it. The favor was out of this world. I will make often. Good with a salad and some bread.
