Yes, simply delicious! Such an easy and filling recipe. I used chicken breast meat left over from making Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style, omitted the leek because I didn't have it, and sliced up baby carrots. The broth was very flavorful due to the spices. A wonderful soup that I look forward to making again this fall and winter.



This recipe was very easy to prepare and came out great! I highly recommend it.



This was a nice, basic, quick, and simple chicken and rice soup that was exactly what I was looking for to use up some turkey leftover from Thanksgiving. The recipe was very good exactly as written, but next time I think I'll add an extra carrot, some mushrooms, and some parsley. I will make this again.
