Chicken Soup in BowlMy youngest was home sick from school this week so I made him a batch of a very basic chicken and rice soup to make him feel better. I recommend lots of garlic and a long slow simmer to cure any cold.


Total Time: 1 + hours

Yield: 6-8


  • 1 lb chicken tenderloins
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 cup green beans, roughly chopped
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • salt, pepper and Italian seasoning, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups cooked long grain rice

I would have added celery if I had any on hand. Other good additions would have been mushrooms, tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, parsley or any fresh herbs.


  1. Heat a heavy bottomed pot on medium and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. When the oil is heated, add the chicken and cook until browned on both sides, 2-3 minutes per side. It doesn't need to be fully cooked as it will simmer in the soup.
  2. Remove chicken from pan, cover and set aside. Add 1 Tbsp. oil to pan.
  3. When the oil is heated, add the onions and cook until just softened, 2-3 minutes
  4. Add vegetables. Sauté briefly after adding the next ingredient; garlic, carrots, green beans.

  6. Add chicken broth and seasonings. Bring to just a boil and reduce heat to low.

I used a package of chicken tenderloins for this soup but I would have rather used a rotisserie chicken. Remove the meat, cook the bones down into broth and simmer

Place chicken, seasonings and bouillon cube in a 3 qt. saucepan with enough water to cover. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is done. Remove chicken, de-bone is necessary, and slice into small chunks.

In a large pot, boil the chicken, onion, celery, carrots, parsley, rosemary, and thyme together. Once the chicken is almost done, then add the potatoes.

I learned how to make really good chicken broth from my college roommate back in the day, a Chinese girl named Jin (Pronounced "Jean). From that amazing broth, she made lots of other dishes, and I taught her how to make chicken soup.

This classic Greek recipe is flavored with lemons and eggs, resulting in a creamy and hearty soup. Chicken is a common starting point and rice or orzo are also usually included.

A hearty chicken soup with a lemon-egg sauce added for flavor and richness.
