This is a great, easy chicken-and-rice soup. We like to use instant brown rice because it cooks so quickly, but you could substitute cooked brown rice (stirred in at the end) if you have it on hand. Try the recipe with other herbs if you like, such as dill or tarragon.

Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 15 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes
  • 1 tablespoon
    extra-virgin olive oil

    reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup
    instant brown rice

    boneless, skinless chicken breast, trimmed and cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 cup

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add carrots, onion and celery and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil.
