My 5 year old started kindergarten two weeks ago, so the viruses have begun. A cold swept through all of the little 5 year old boys on our street yesterday, and of course it was my boys turn. Before the virus takes over the entire house I have a bug blaster check list.

My Grandma Olga swears by homemade chicken and rice soup from scratch for a cold. She would always make a version of this for me growing up. Sometimes with noodles, sometimes rice. It just depending on what she had on hand. So when I needed an easy gluten free chicken soup recipe- using rice was the winner.

I have been making this easy chicken and rice soup recipe for some time now, but finally wrote it down to share with everyone. It is also available in my cookbook.

 

 

 

How do I make this healthy Chicken and Rice Soup?

This gluten free chicken and rice soup only takes about 10 minutes of prep and 50 minutes of cook time.
You can pre-make the chicken in your instant pot, or you can boil and shred it. Another easy alternative is to use a rotisserie chicken.
In a stock pot melt the oil. Add the celery, carrots, and onion. Sauté the veggies for 3 minutes. Add the broth, all seasonings, and bring to a boil. Add the chicken, and reduce and simmer for 30 minutes. Once the 30 minutes has passed, add the rice and cover for 15 minutes. Take the cover off and allow it to cook for about 5 or so minutes, or until the rice is tender and cooked through. Serve with your favorite crackers.
