CILANTRO CHICKEN AND RICE SOUP – FOOD MILLIONS

September 27, 2022
CILANTRO CHICKEN AND RICE SOUP

Cilantro chicken and rice soup, yum soup in the cold weather.

As the leaves fall and the weather cools, and we begin to wear boots, jackets, and hats, we begin to crave more of those comforting meals that are simple to prepare and require only a little stovetop cooking.

CILANTRO CHICKEN AND RICE SOUP

One of my personal favorite comfort food pairings is chicken and rice. Whether as a soup or as a main course.

For 1 hour, the soup is cooked with onion, garlic, celery stem and leaves, chicken, rice, and loads of cilantro. It’s everything I’m looking for in a slow-cooked soup. Flavorful, filling, and easy to prepare.

Is cilantro a nice addition to chicken soup?

YES. Yes, 100 times yes. Cilantro’s bright and fresh flavor complements the savory flavor of the chicken well. Combine this with the lime for a flavorful soup that will make you feel like summer is finally here in the midst of January.
