How to Store and Reheat Homemade Chicken and Rice Soup

I intentionally made this recipe small (in number of servings) because it is best served fresh.  As it cools, the rice will continue to soak up the broth making it more of a chicken and rice dish than a soup.  The flavor is still excellent as leftovers despite the texture change.  So, if you’d like to save this soup simple transfer it to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator up to 4 days.

Servings: 6
Calories: 296kcal

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • ½ C Onion diced
  • 1 C Carrots sliced in 1/4" thick coins
  • ¼ C Celery sliced 1/4" thick
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 2 Tbsp Gluten Free 1-to-1 Flour Blend
  • ½ tsp Rosemary
  • 1 tsp Thyme
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Black Pepper
  • 6 C Gluten Free Chicken Stock
  • ¾ C White Rice
  • 2 C Chicken precooked and cut into bite sized pieces

Instructions

  • In a large soup pot or dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add the onion, carrots and celery to the olive oil and cook until softened, about 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to avoid sticking or burning.
  • Add the garlic, herbs, salt, pepper and flour to the pan. Stir to coat the vegetables. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the chicken stock. Stir well. Cover and bring to a simmer.
  • Once simmering, add the rice and cooked chicken. Cook until rice is done, about 20 minutes.
  • Serve immediately. Rice will continue to absorb the liquid after cooking.

Notes

I only use 4-5 cups of chicken stock when I make this as I prefer it to be on the thicker side (almost no liquid).  You can adjust the stock amount to your liking.
