Directions

  1. Combine chicken broth, onion, celery, carrots, parsley, pepper, thyme, and bay leaf in a Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer until the onion and celery begin to soften, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir chicken into the simmering broth; cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the middle, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf. Stir rice and lime juice into the broth; cook and stir just until rice is hot and grains separate, about 1 minute. Garnish with lime slices.

This is a great recipe. The favor is light and good. I added 1/2 teaspoon of basil (the taste is sweeter). I made my own chicken stock (see all recipes). Because I made my own stock, I added 1 teaspoon of salt. My family loves this recipe!

GREAT recipe. I also make my own chicken broth so I added a teaspoon of Old Bay seasoning. Because I was taking this to a soup & bread meal I doubled the recipe and it was perfect for feeding a crowd of hungry Lutherans! Thanks for sharing!
