We Leave with Nothing but Love

Soup can go with Pizza

Last week I had frozen two pizzas to use at a later time. Tonight, although I was already making soup, it was definitely pizza night. The two young sons had over-napped and were moody and out of it. They would not accept anything else. But who could blame them? That pizza is killer.

I looked up zone diet recipes that are quick and delicious, and found this amazing chicken- rice soup:

Props to AllRecipes.com, but here is my improved adaptation:

  • Two quarts chicken broth
  • 1/2 c chopped carrots
  • 2/3 c chopped green onions
  • 1/2 c green bell pepper
  • 1 tsp dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 1/4 c all- purpose flour
  • 10.75 oz can of cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 c white wine
  • 3 cups of cooked white rice (1 c dry white rice with 2 c water)
  • 2 c cooked chicken (bite-sized or smaller)

In a medium-sized saucepan, mix the first 6 ingredients, and bring to a boil.

In a larger saucepan, melt the butter and mix in flour until creamy and smooth. Pour in the broth mix and heat for a couple minutes.

Lastly, pour in cream of chicken soup, white wine, cooked rice, and chicken. Be sure to mix well, as the cream of chicken can quickly lump together. This delicious soup has a nice combination of flavors, and stays warm and servable for a while. After serving with homemade pineapple-chicken pizza on the side, there will be enough soup to add as a side to lunches and dinners for the rest of the week.
