Chicken and Rice Healing Soup
This easy Chicken and Rice Healing Soup is a healthy soup that is perfect not only on those colder days but when your body needs some TLC. It is loaded with vegetables and rice and simmered in the most aromatic chicken broth.
This soup recipe came about when I wanted to incorporate broccoli into my traditional Greek Chicken Avgolemono soup. It is similar in flavour but this recipe has the benefits of added vegetables!
Here is my Chicken Avgolemono Soup
Butter or Dairy Free Alternative: If I could beg you not to leave out the butter, then I would. Therefore, please do not leave out the butter! Do not substitute it for olive oil either. If you prefer it to be dairy free, then add a dairy free alternative (in Australia we have Nuttelex). This adds a creamy texture and goes so well with the fresh lemon juice.
Water: You may think that there is a lot of water – in total nearly 3.5 litres – however during the chicken cooking time - which needs to be at least an hour - there is about a litre of water that evaporates, hence why I suggest adding another 3 cups of boiling water.
Seasoning: No amount of delicious broth will taste good without salt. Please add according to your taste but it is really important that you do, especially whilst the chicken is cooking. It gives it a completely different and wholesome taste.
