Mums Tasty Chicken and Rice Soup

Welcome to the first of my blogs. I hope you like my quick, simple recipes that all your family will enjoy.  I aim to concentrate on recipes that you can make in advance or that don't take hours to prepare and make.

The first 2 recipes are quick, nutritious soups.

Mums Tasty Chicken and Rice Soup

Preparation Time - 25 mins
Cooking Time - A further 15 mins
Serves - 6 - 8 bowls


Chicken Breast
1400 ml Chicken Stock
Packet of Super Chicken Noodle Soup
1 cup of cooked white rice
1 Leek
2 Carrots
Handful of fresh Parsley
2 cloves of Garlic
Dash of oil


  1. Prepare stock, chop up leek and garlic
  2. Heat a little oil in a large pot, add the leek and garlic and fry for a couple of minutes
  3. Add the stock, chicken and packet of super noodle chicken soup, bring to the boil
  4. Meanwhile, chop 1 carrot and grate the other and add to pot, bring to boil and then cover and simmer for 15 mins or until carrots are soft
  5. Add parsley and rice
  6. Remove chicken, shred and return to pot and season to taste

Finished result

This recipe can also be easily amended to make chicken and lentil soup simply by adding a cup of lentils when you add the stock and omitting the rice. (A favourite of my eldest son)

I enjoy this most served with hot part baked rolls straight from the oven.
