Ummmm.... Warm Soup on a Cold Day!!!

I know this post almost seems like a duplicate of another post, but because of the cold, I had to make myself some more homemade soup. This time I made Chicken and Rice, because I had left over Chicken and Rice from a previous dinner. I just hated to let it go to waste, so what else do you do with left over Chicken and Rice?? You make Soup of course!!! I thought I would share the recipe in case you were craving soup as well. I made enough soup to last several days.

Left over Chicken and Rice OR......

1 whole chicken boiled and deboned (save the broth) or 1 large can of chopped chicken

1 box of instant brown or white rice
I then added...

3 cups or cans of chicken broth

1 can of cream of chicken or cream of mushroom

1 cup of milk

basil to taste

salt to taste

pepper to taste

Chop up the chicken into small pieces. Add broth to stock pot and then bring to a boil. Add in rice and cook till tender. Add in chicken, cream of chicken soup, milk and seasons. Simmer for 45 minutes. If you like it more soupy, than add more broth.
