  2. Return chicken to the pot and stir in chicken broth and rice. Continue to simmer until rice is tender, about 30 minutes more, stirring occasionally.

Yes, simply delicious! Such an easy and filling recipe. I used chicken breast meat left over from making Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style, omitted the leek because I didn't have it, and sliced up baby carrots. The broth was very flavorful due to the spices. A wonderful soup that I look forward to making again this fall and winter.

This was a nice, basic, quick, and simple chicken and rice soup that was exactly what I was looking for to use up some turkey leftover from Thanksgiving. The recipe was very good exactly as written, but next time I think I'll add an extra carrot, some mushrooms, and some parsley. I will make this again.

Nothing really stand-out about this, but it's a solid, satisfying chicken soup.

Soup was extremely easy to make and to convert to gluten free!
