Marcinho's Country-Style Chicken & Rice Soup
50 mins (prep 15, cooking 35)
13 ingredients
4-8 servings
This is a soup that takes less than an hour to make, it's satisfying, delicious and a crowd pleaser! Whenever it's COLD--- this will soothe the soul! And it's DIFFERENT the next day (once the flavors have melded)!I will post first: The way my Grandmother likes it and then I've added a note about the way I spruce it up for a more gourmet approach and presentation.I'd serve it with a toasted, buttered baguette; Fresh baked Cornbread or with Carr's Water Crackers; A glass of well-chilled, crisp Chardonnay or a Gewürztraminer.This is a "Provincial" soup--- meaning: Not finished in a refined manner, so make sure to have little saucers or bowls to catch your guests bones as they find them.Where there are ranges EG: "1.5 to 2 cups of rice", for example, this is done to accommodate your personal tastes. It is already a quick soup. If you rush it, it will TASTE like it. Bon Appetit! :-)
