This was really good. The whole family enjoyed it. Reading all the problems w/the rice turning the soup to mush I came up with this solution. I made the soup according to the directions (adding a little more spices to my liking) and instead of adding the rice to the soup to cook I made the rice first (I used instant rice) and then the last 30 minutes or so just added the rice to the soup. Came out more like soup not mush. Hope this helps anyone else. Thanks for the recipe Corwyn. This one is a keeper. Read More

Good. But when preparing I would cut back on the lemon seasoning. Also for an interesting twist used flavored chicken broth. Read More

This soup is delicious and it is one of my favorite dishes in the winter. It goes great with some home made whole wheat bread. I like to spice up the soup a bit by adding some thyme garlic and basil. Find the right combination of these three to meet your taste buds. For the listed recipe that serves six I add one crushed clove of garlic about 1 tablespoon of dried basil and 1/2 tablespoon of dried thyme. You don't want to overpower the original recipe's taste just add some more subtleties. If you're having problems with mushy rice make sure to use parboiled rice. I've never had the problem with mushy rice when I've used parboiled. Read More

Loved this soup...added some more flavors to it...I cooked onions with the chicken and placed them in the soup along with thyme pepper a little salt and flavored chicken broth..I used four cans instead of three I also waited till the last half an hour to put the rice in the pot. It came out delicious everyone enjoyed it...along with garlic bread. It is lite but yet hits the spot on a cold New England day. Thank you for the easy yet great recipe! Read More

I had chicken rice soup in mind today and found this wonderful recipe. Had to change a few things based on what was on hand. No frozen veggies so used 1 zucchini 2 carrots 2 celery 1/2 onion 1/2 lemon (squeezed juice) added 1/2T basil 1T thyme 1 clove garlic. The rice soaked up most of the broth so added 4 additional cups of water 2 cubes of MSG free chicken bouillon. Perfection! My new favorite. thanks Read More

DELICIOUS! I added a little black pepper and garlic powder for some extra flavor. I would also recommend reserving the chicken and rice til the last hour or two of cooking as the chicken disintegrates and the rice soaks up too much liquid and gets mushy. But otherwise I love it! Read More

I threw all the ingredients in my slow cooker before I left for work. However when my husband got home less than 5 hours later the rice was nothing but mush. I don't recommend this recipe. Read More

My family is in LOVE with this soup! We had it for the first time today and my husband can't stop talking about it. My two year old even asked for more after eating a very hearty portion. I took the advice of some others and added a clove of garlic 1 T of dried basil and 1/2 T of dried thyme. In addition I didn't have the lemon and herb seasoning on hand so I added 1/8 t black pepper 1-2 T dried oregano 1-2 t bottled lemon peel. I didn't have the time to use the slow cooker so I just mixed everything but the brown rice I used together in my dutch oven brought it to a boil then reduced the heat and let it simmer for about 20 minutes or so. Then I added the cooked brown rice to the pot and let it cook for another 10 minutes. Absolutely superb! Would give it more than 5 stars if I could! Read More
