Homemade Chicken and Rice Soup

This Old-Fashioned Homemade Chicken and Rice Soup recipe is one of those soups that warm up your body when it is cold. We are due for a big storm to come our way here in southern California so I have stocked up on soup and baking ingredients in preparation for the week.  I have to say that this is a soup that I would definitely recommend you have in your meal rotation as it is hearty, healthy and heart-warming.

I made this the other day when it was raining and I wanted something that we could enjoy while catching up on our Stranger Things episodes. If you have not seen that show, it is really fun and intriguing. I finally got to watch this series during winter break.

But back to this heartwarming soup. It goes nicely with corn bread or crispy garlic bread. Made with fresh vegetables, chicken and rice it is a great meal for the whole family.
