Hey everyone! I hope that you’ve had a good week so far. With the weather getting colder, I wanted to share a Weekday Supper recipe that I love to make when it is cold outside. I love eating some chicken and rice soup with the television on or while playing games with friends and family in the warmth of my home.
I live near a rotisserie chicken store and love buying a rotisserie chicken to turn it into a soup. It’s a great way of speeding up a weekday dinner by using fresh, juicy chicken that is already cooked. Add some quality chicken broth and fresh vegetables and you’ve got an easy and tasty 30 minute soup.
