The Tastiest Chicken Rice Soup Recipe

Chicken rice soup recipe, a tasty break from noodle soup. Easy to make with a bounty of flavor to wake up your taste buds. It’s made with brown rice. If you haven’t tried this healthy alternative to white rice, you may want to give it a whirl, just this once, and see what you think.

Whenever a recipe calls for chicken, if I don’t have any leftover, I use a roasted chicken from the grocery store. It works out quite well and best of all, I didn’t have to cook it.

I make this chicken rice soup with brown rice. I am not a health nut, but there is quite a difference in the wellness benefits between brown rice and white rice. Rice has no fat. While white rice is a good source of several vitamins, through milling and polishing, the brown rice, which is what white rice starts out as, becomes white and in the process most of the vitamins have been destroyed. The manufacturer is required to put some of the vitamins back in after milling. However, in comparison to brown rice, white rice is lacking at least 11 other essential vitamins that are held in the unmilled brown rice. 

It took a little getting used to the difference in taste between white rice and brown rice, but I have now acquired a taste for it and like it. It has a rather nutty flavor. One of the reasons most of my recipes call for white rice is because it cooks so much faster than brown rice and usually when people cook time is a factor. But this recipe seems to go great with the brown rice.

Brown rice is bountiful in niacin, thiamin, iron, folic acid, selenium, manganese and magnesium to name a few. It is also a critical component of the use of antioxidants in the body.
