Best Ever Chicken, Veggie and Rice Soup Recipe for Cool Days

Busy days cool days means not much time to be cooking up the traditional comfort warming soups.  After a recent trip to Costco I brought home a jar of Organic Chicken Base.  The USDA certified label caught my eye so I added it to my collection of spices in my kitchen.  When I started chopping up what I had on hand for soup I didn’t intend to use the chicken base. After all I had added great ingredients like cilantro from the dome, celery from my raised beds, organic carrots, chicken breast and some salsa : hard to imagine the soup needed a little kick.  After the first test taste I knew it needed something so in went a tablespoon of the new product.  WOW!!!!  You gotta try my this under 1 hour to prepare soup because it is Best Ever Chicken, Veggie and Rice Soup Recipe for Cool Days.

The recipe is super easy to put together as long as you have a few fresh ingredients on hand.  Today I used some of the celery I have growing in my raised beds, frozen cilantro from the dome and chicken breast from the freezer.  I hope you take advantage of the print option on this recipe and add it to your kitchen cookbook.
