So quick-to-prepare meals are where it’s at for us right now – like this delicious Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup.

This recipe couldn’t be any quicker or easier to make – it only takes about 30 minutes – and it’s a hearty and delicious meal that both kids and adults will love! (I call that a Mealtime Success!) This creamy chicken and rice soup takes advantage of a few short cuts – but in a very delicious way! First – we used a rotisserie chicken from the supermarket (any cooked chicken will do), and – we used Success® Rice!

Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup - A Family Feast

Creamy Chicken and Rice Soup

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings

Description

If you prefer your soup with lots of broth, use only one bag of Success Jasmine Rice. If you like thicker and heartier soup, use two bags. (For our recipe, we used two bags.) Note that the cooked rice will absorb some of the broth once combined so if you reheat any leftovers the next day, more chicken stock or cream may be needed to thin the soup.


Ingredients

  • 1 two-pound rotisserie chicken
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 quart low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt as needed
  • 2 bags Success Jasmine Rice, see note

Instructions

  1. Remove the meat from the rotisserie chicken and dice into bite sized pieces. (One two-pound cooked rotisserie chicken will yield about one pound of usable meat, equivalent to about three cups of diced cooked chicken.)
  2. In a medium pot over medium high heat, melt butter and add carrots, onion, celery, parsley, pepper, thyme and garlic powder. Stir and cook for 5 minutes. Lower heat to medium and add flour. Stir and cook for three more minutes.
  3. Add stock and stir with wooden spoon until combined. Add cooked chicken and stir. Reduce temperature to low.
  4. Bring a medium pan of water to a boil and place two bags of Success rice into water and follow directions on box (or follow microwave directions on box).
  5. When rice is almost done, heat soup back up and add peas and cream and stir. Taste and only add salt if needed. Depending on the brand of stock you buy, salt may not be needed.
  6. Once rice is done, follow box directions to remove and drain and add rice to soup.
  7. Stir and serve.

    This sounds so good. I have leftover BBQ chicken I was wondering if I could use that chicken to make this soup

    • Martha wrote:

      Absolutely Cathy! Any kind of leftover cooked chicken will work in this recipe!

      • Tammy wrote:

        Can you use regular rice or instant rice and if so what would be the measurements for that?

        • Martha wrote:

          Hi Tammy – Yes – depending on how thick and hearty you’d like your soup, you can use anywhere from 1-1/2 to 3 cups of rice for the full recipe.

      Our go-to dish is pineapple chicken, it seems like it would take a long time but really, it is super quick – just blanch the chicken, make the sauce and add in veggies and pineapple. Quick and tasty.

    Hi do you think this could be adapted to use in a soup maker, I have just bought one and this soup sounds very nice, but would be to much to make in my soup maker.

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Dawn – We’ve actually never used a soup maker so unfortunately, I am unfamiliar with how they cook and the quantities it will hold! This is also such a simple soup to prepare in a standard pot on the stove – that still might be easiest! But if you do try it in the soup maker, please let us know how it works out! Thanks for writing to us!

My husband and kids ask for it every week! I made it a lot when I was a bachelorette. lol!

    I made this soup for dinner last night; it was DELICIOUS! The flavor profile is perfect. Chef Jack knows how to season! I used a one pint jar of my home-canned chicken, and a one pint jar of my home-dehydrated instant rice. Those quantities closely matched this recipe and performed perfectly. This soup definitely is a keeper! Thank you for sharing your expertise.

      • Maripat wrote:

        Christy Jordan, of Southern Plate, has a youtube video demonstrating rice dehydration. It’s super easy. I package rice in 1 pint canning jars with an oxygen absorber in each jar. I use a regular canning flat and ring lid, then pull a vacuum with a Waring hand-held vacuum pump. We live in tornado country. When storms knock out power for extended periods, it’s nice to have a versatile, tasty supply of shelf-stable food, so that’s the genesis of our pantry, and my motivation to make my own instant rice. In soup applications, my instant rice tastes like fresh-cooked rice.

      Thanks Susie! I wouldn’t suggest freezing it – dairy usually separates when it is frozen and I’m afraid the rice would also get mushy once it is thawed. You could always make half a recipe the next time if it makes more than you can eat! Hope that helps!

    Either I bought some super potent dried thyme, or you have a typo in the recipe. I made this and it was overpowered by thyme. We could not eat it.

      Hi Rosalinda – Sorry for not responding sooner – you would add the heavy cream in Step 5. Glad you enjoyed the soup!!

    The amount you stated is that cooked or uncooked rice ?

      Hi Karen – Thanks for your question. The two bags of Success Rice are cooked in step 5 of the recipe – so that is uncooked to start. If you were asking about the 1 1/2 to 3 cups of rice that we mentioned in the comments (if you aren’t using the Success Rice) – that is cooked. Hope you love the soup!
