Whenever any member of our family gets sick, we bring out the big pot and make this delicious Chicken and Rice Soup. Everyone loves it and we always have lots leftover. It’s a great way to get kids to eat their veggies!
- 8 cups chicken broth
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic
- 3 medium carrots, sliced
- 2 inch piece of ginger root, sliced
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup brown rice
- 3-4 chicken thighs cut into cubes
- 1 bunch kale, roughly torn into pieces
In a large pot over medium-high heat, bring 1/2 cup broth to a simmer. Add onion, carrots and ginger and cook about 5 minutes or until onion is translucent, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and saute about 3 more minutes. Add remaining broth, water, rice, and chicken. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook about 35 minutes or until rice is tender and chicken is cooked through. Stir in kale. Continue cooking just until kale is tender, about 5 minutes.
Even kids love this soup!
