rustic rooster {menu}


I have a sick little baby girl at home today... Of course I'm going to make her Chicken and Rice soup! Who doesn't like soup when they're sick... Poor baby! Hope you all are well... Eat clean and drink tons of water with lemon!!!!! Enjoy this recipe...


INGREDIENTS



  • 1 whole chicken (3 to 4 pounds), skin removed
  • 1 1/2 pounds (9 to 10 medium) carrots, peeled and halved crosswise
  • 1 pound (5 to 6 medium) parsnips, peeled and halved crosswise
  • celery stalks, thinly sliced crosswise
  • 2 large onions (about 1 pound), halved and sliced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • garlic cloves, smashed
  • 1 tablespoon whole peppercorns
  • Coarse salt
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 6 scallions, white and green parts separated and thinly sliced

DIRECTIONS

  1. STEP 1

    In a large soup pot, combine chicken, carrotsparsnipscelery,onions, bay leaves, garlic, peppercorns, and 1 teaspoon coarse salt. Add water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium. Simmer partly covered, occasionally skimming and discarding fat from surface, about 1 hour.
  2. STEP 2

    With a slotted spoon or tongs, remove chicken, carrots, andparsnips from pot; set aside. Pour remaining contents of pot through a fine-mesh sieve into another large pot; discard solids, and bring broth to a boil. Add rice and white part of scallions. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer, uncovered, until rice is tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. STEP 3

    Meanwhile, remove chicken from bones, and shred into bite-size pieces (discard any fatty or discolored parts). Cut carrots and parsnips into bite-size pieces. When rice is cooked, return chicken, carrots, and parsnips to broth in pot; add green part of scallions. Season generously with 5 to 6 teaspoons coarse salt.
