  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 recipe is awesome! I used a bit more rice than the recipe called for and to make! it had great flavor and so easy

Most helpful critical review

The only changes I made were I added noodles rather than rice, and I used my homemade broth. My husband liked it, I thought it was too bland.
