One of my comfort foods

Tonight, TK is really ready to have me take over the kitchen again! Even if I'm not. So I am making something that EASY and tastes good on a rainy day like this when you feel like death-warmed-over!

CHICKEN & RICE SOUP

Combine the following ingredients. Amounts will depend on your taste and your fridge.

Water (or chicken broth)
Chicken Boullion
Chicken or Turkey, cooked (frozen, leftovers, canned, anything)
Rice
Parsley
Salt
Pepper
Optional: onion, celery, peas, carrots, any of the usual stuff for soup.

Boil or simmer all together until the rice is over-cooked and the ends have broken so that each little grain looks more like a star than a grain.

NOTES: This is best when slowly cooked all day and starting with uncooked chicken to make the broth. The amount of rice to water added is going to depend on your own taste. I like lots of rice with just a little broth. This also makes a little meat go a long way!
