Classic Cream of Chicken Soup with Rice!

By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!

Last night I made this really nice braised chicken and tonight I have a lot of left overs. We are really in the midst of a cold snap here and I do love to make a good soup when it is cold for my Honey! It is nice for him to come home to that big steaming bowl of goodness! He loves soup, I think it is one of his favorite dishes. I haven’t made a nice chicken with rice soup in some time, I know how he likes my creamier soups, so I will make it special for him.

Serves 6
