Chicken and RIce Soup

Quick, Easy, and Nourishing Chicken and Rice Soup

This chicken and rice soup is so quick and easy to make. Actually, one of the beautiful things about making soups in general is that they are all so quick and easy. Once you have homemade bone broth, you have such a flavorful base that it is hard to go wrong. Add organic veggies and pastured meats to your nourishing bone broth and you have an easy meal loaded with nutrition. Also, there are no rules! Add whatever you like: leftover veggies, leftover noodles, root veggies, herbs from the garden, etc.

Combine this soup with a large salad and a hunk of crusty sourdough bread and you’ve got a meal.
