Easy Chicken and Rice Soup - Whip up this warm and satisfying soup in just minutes. It's the perfect easy dinner on busy weeknights.

I do have a little confession to make. It’s only the second week of September and still reaching nearly 90 degrees during the day here in Ohio, but I’m absolutely ready for all things fall. It was a little chilly in my office first thing this morning and I actually had my little heater running under my desk. My husband would shake his head if he knew that I was already running my little office heater this early in the season!

That said, I’m also craving warm comfort foods like this easy chicken and rice soup.

This soup is chock-full of delicious fresh vegetables, including red bell peppers, zucchini, celery and onions. The veggies all go into a skillet until they are nice and tender. When the vegetables are soft and seasoned, you add your broth, water and Knorr® Rice Sides. Bring this to a boil and then it only takes about 10 minutes to finish the soup.

I love how quick and easy this recipe is to prepare, and you could really mix it up by using whatever vegetables you have available at the time.

This soup is so very flavorful and delicious. It is the perfect warm comfort food for a chilly day.

If you wanted to save even more time, you could wash and chop your vegetables ahead of time, and even cook and shred your chicken beforehand as well. I chopped my veggies and cooked my chicken the night before, put it in the fridge and then spent only minutes on dinner the next day! That’s a huge win on those busy fall school nights when helping the kids with their homework makes the evenings hectic.

I filled my husband’s soup thermos with some leftover chicken and rice soup and he was able to enjoy a warm, filling lunch at work the next day.

Do you have a favorite soup recipe to enjoy during the fall?

  1. Sounds delish, except those Knorr products have an ENORMOUS amount of sodium. I would find an alternative.

  2. Every thing looks sooo good and delicious I can’t wait to try them.

  3. I’ve made mine and use the Oriental frozen veggies some times. Works great for a little difference.
