This warming chicken, rice, and vegetable soup is perfect for chilly days or for when you’re feeling under the weather.
- 1–2 chicken breasts (11-12 oz total uncooked or 1 1/2 cups of cooked chicken)
- 1 cup of carrots, peeled and sliced (120 g)
- 1 cup of sliced celery (100 g)
- 1 cup of chopped asparagus (100 g)
- 1 cup of sliced white mushrooms (80 g)
- 4 cups of water
- 4 cups of chicken broth (or veggie broth)
- cooked jasmine rice (see below for directions)
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- 1 bay leaf
- 1–2 tbsp of fresh chopped parsley
- 1 tsp of sea salt or Himalayan salt
- pepper to taste (omit if not tolerated)
- Optional; fresh or dried thyme leaves and 1/8 tsp ground turmeric
- Bring the water and broth to a boil in a stockpot. Then add the carrots, celery, chicken, bay leaf, and salt. Cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes (set a timer) or until chicken is cooked through.
- While the soup is simmering, prepare the jasmine rice. Rinse your rice by pouring 1 cup of rice into a medium bowl. Fill the bowl with water until rice is completely covered. Stir the rice around using clean hands. Pour cloudy water out and repeat rinsing the rice a couple more times.
- Add 2 cups of water to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add 1 cup of jasmine rice. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer for about 18 minutes-20 minutes without lifting the lid (time may vary depending on stove type). Fluff cooked rice with a fork and set aside.
- 5 minutes before the timer for the soup goes off, add the asparagus to the stockpot.
- Heat a skillet over medium heat, then add 1 tbsp of olive oil. Wait for the oil to heat up (1-2 minutes), then add mushrooms and a sprinkle of salt. Cook until tender (about 5 minutes), then add mushrooms to the stockpot.
- Remove chicken from the stockpot and shred with a fork. Add the shredded chicken back to the soup.
- Turn the heat off, remove the bay leaf from the soup, and add fresh chopped parsley, pepper, and more salt as needed. Add cooked jasmine rice to soup bowl after serving. Enjoy!
